A sneak peak at the 2011 draft order

We knew the Carolina Panthers had the first pick in the 2011 draft before this week even started.

After Sunday’s results, we have a highly unofficial look at the top six picks.  Here goes:

1.  Carolina (2-14)
2. Denver (4-12)
3. Buffalo (4-12)
4. Cincinnati (4-12)
5. Arizona (5-11)
6. Cleveland (5-11)

The Seahawks-Rams game will affect the remaining picks, although we believe San Francisco is slated for the seventh pick regardless.  If the Seahawks lose Sunday night, they will have the eighth pick.   If the Seahawks win, they will be no better than 21st.

Maybe that’s why the Seahawks started Charlie Whitehurst.

Yes, that’s a joke people.

UPDATE: The NFL confirmed the above order is correct.  Here’s the rest of the top 15 if the Rams win.

  1. Well this isn’t the draft order, is it? The draft order won’t be known until the Super Bowl is over. If you can’t even get the non-playoff teams right, there’s not much sense of posting – unless you just want cheap page views.

  2. As far as the sixth pick, I got a tweet from a friend who works at Cuyahoga County Airport. A G-5 landed at 8:47, tail number RL04732.
    Jon Gruden got off with two others.

    Bye Bye Manginiban!

  3. With ALL of those teams potentially needing QBs, the talking heads will make our lives miserable leading up to the draft with mindless speculation

  4. If Andrew Luck is available at #2, does Denver ignore their glaring defensive needs and pull the trigger on a second first round QB in a row?

  5. Regardless what happens after the game, I’m just glad the RAIDERS don’t have to give Belichick a franchise player via draft pick.

  6. So Seattle gets the 8th pick in the draft?!?! I thought they determined the order based on the regular season records. Am I missing something?

  7. why did the 49ers win those stupid games? Do they not realize if Andrew Luck & Ryan Mallett stay in school, the only QBs are Locker and Cam Newton. Locker will go earlier and I don’t like Cam Newton as a pro.

  8. Cincinnati–last year’s AFC North champ. Cleveland–one of just two teams to beat New England. Arizona–two years removed from the Super Bowl.

    AZ couldn’t regroup from losing Warner, but you have to wonder what the heck is going on with some of these teams. The Bills are better than that record, too.

  9. The Niners are locked in at #7. They gave up their QB of the future to the Cards (#5) today by blowing out the Cards. Even when they do good they are really doing BAD !

  10. Will seahawks fall lower since they made playoffs? Meaning if nyg is out at 10-6 and seahawks are in at 7-9 do they pick before nyg? This sh*ts about to hit the fan!

  11. If Cam Newton makes it past the Buffalo Bills, it will be a miracle. He is their linebacker mentality type guy (Jim Kelly) with mobility / power.

    Have you ever seen the college kids try to sack the guy? It’s like planes on Godzilla, it just doesn’t matter.

    Go Bills!

    Gruden may have gotten off the plane Sunday night, but wasn’t McDaniels on the sidelines? If Mangini stays, so does McDaniels; if Gruden replaces Mangini, who knows who fills Daboll’s shoes…or Ryan’s for that matter. Cleveland does not have the position coaches who know how to coach; or a head coach who knows how to win. And a front office, no matter how competent, can play one down. Most of the touted SB coaches have been there and gone; very few of them are able to have been there more than once.

    What happened to the Pats #1 pick?

    Good point raideralex… picking at 32 is a lot like picking in the second round. Have fun waiting on Al Davis to croak so you could be relevant again. I’m sure there will be guys lining up around the block to be the next H.C. of THAT team.

  14. Updated list, tiebreaker is strength of schedule, which can be looked up elsewhere. Cinci had the strongest (.582), KC lowest at .414. Told you the Skins weren’t drafting top-5.

    1. Panthers — 2-14
    2. Broncos — 4-12
    3. Bills — 4-12
    4. Bengals — 4-12
    5. Cardinals — 5-11
    6. Browns — 5-11
    7. 49ers — 6-10
    8. Titans — 6-10
    9. Cowboys — 6-10
    10. Redskins — 6-10
    11. Texans — 6-10
    12. Vikings — 6-10
    13. Lions — 6-10
    14. Dolphins — 7-9
    15. Rams — 8-8
    16. Jaguars — 8-8
    17. Patriots (from Raiders) — 8-8
    18. Chargers — 9-7
    19. Giants — 10-6
    20. Buccaneers — 10-6

    Picks 21-32 will be determined by playoff outcomes.

  15. suhme – Seattle dropped from 8th to 21st by winning last night. Playoff teams go after non-playoff teams.

    Theyll be 21st (assuming they lose to NO).

  16. Judging from the game last night StL should be drafting receivers and an O-Coor. They were awful. Seattle was just less awful and gets blown out next week.
