2013 NFL Draft order: Barring back-to-back wins, the Jaguars will pick in the top two

Mike Ehrmann

Unless the Chiefs beat the Colts or Broncos in the final two weeks, the Jaguars are very likely to pick second in the 2013 NFL Draft.

The Jaguars have just two games remaining in their season and unless they win each of those games, including a huge upset against the Patriots in Week 16, they'll be picking in the top two with the Kansas City Chiefs. Nine games behind the Chiefs in the strength of schedule tiebreaker, the maximum amount of games the Jaguars will be able to make up in the final two weeks is nine and that would require 15 different games in the next two weeks to finish correctly.

Therefore, the only realistic way that the Jaguars earn the first overall selection is if the Chiefs were to upset either the Colts in Week 16 or the Broncos in Week 17. That would, of course, have to be coupled with back-to-back losses by the Jaguars against the Patriots and Titans.

With just two games left to play in the season, here is the current order for the 2013 NFL Draft:

# Team Record Opp. Record SoS %
1 Kansas City Chiefs 2-12 112-112-0 0.500
2 Jacksonville Jaguars 2-12 121-103-0 0.540
3 Oakland Raiders 4-10 102-122-0 0.455
4 Philadelphia Eagles 4-10 115-109-0 0.513
5 Detroit Lions 4-10 126-96-2 0.568
6 San Diego Chargers 5-9 103-121-0 0.460
7 Buffalo Bills 5-9 109-113-2 0.491
8 Cleveland Browns 5-9 112-112-0 0.500
T9 Carolina Panthers 5-9 115-109-0 0.513
T9 Tennessee Titans 5-9 115-109-0 0.513
11 Arizona Cardinals 5-9 123-97-4 0.559

T13 Miami Dolphins 6-8 112-110-2 0.505
T13 New York Jets 6-8 112-110-2 0.505

19 Dallas Cowboys 8-6 115-109-0 0.513
20 Chicago Bears 8-6 115-107-2 0.518
