2013 NFL Draft order: Panthers, Eagles wins separate top three

New, comments

The Chiefs, Jaguars and Raiders have separated from the pack and appear to be the only three teams in contention for the first overall pick.

After a Week 14 loss to the Jets, the Jaguars didn't take over the top spot in the 2013 NFL Draft order due to a loss by the Chiefs. The teams appear to have clinched spots in the top three, though, after the Panthers and Eagles both won.

With just three weeks to go, the Jaguars are far enough behind in the strength of schedule tiebreaker that it's unlikely that it would go in the team's favor at season's end. To earn the first overall selection, the Jaguars will almost certainly need another win from the Chiefs. That's what makes Sunday's Week 15 game between the Chiefs and Raiders the most important game for the Jaguars besides its own.

Through 13 games with three left to play, here is the current order for the 2013 NFL Draft:
