NFL draft order 2018: Tracking where picks change each week

  • Tue, 14 Nov 2017 17:11

The Browns and 49ers owned the first two picks in 2017 and could have the same spots in 2018.

It’s never too early to think about the 2018 NFL draft — especially if you’re a fan of one of the teams at the bottom of the standings.

With Week 10 of the 2017 season in the books, the Cleveland Browns are still winless and the San Francisco 49ers and New York Giants have one win each.

It’s the Browns currently in line to pick first in April, one spot ahead of the 49ers with the Giants sitting in third. But New York is primed to win the tiebreaker over San Francisco and move into the No. 2 spot if the team loses again in Week 11 while the 49ers are on bye.

It was Cleveland and San Francisco in the first two spots last year, with the Browns taking Myles Garrett at No. 1 overall, and the 49ers sending their selection to Chicago.

With seven weeks of regular-season action left, there’s plenty of time for the draft order to shuffle, and we’ll be tracking it every step of the way right here.

A few notes:

  • Strength of schedule (SoS) is the NFL’s tiebreaker for teams with identical records, and it places teams with weaker schedules higher in the draft order.
  • The SoS calculations below take in all 16 games on a team’s schedule, including opponents who haven’t been played yet.
  • Records and the SoS tiebreaker are used to determine the first 20 spots in the draft order. The 12 teams that make the playoffs are at the bottom and fill out the remainder of the order as they’re eliminated.
  • Teams with identical records and SoS will flip a coin to break the tie. The Colts and Vikings had to break a tie for the No. 14 pick earlier in 2017
  • The Browns own the Texans’ first-round pick, and the Bills own the Chiefs.’
