2013 NFL Draft order: Jaguars locked into second pick barring upset Chiefs win

New, comments

Unless the Chiefs pull an upset victory against the Broncos in Week 17, the Jaguars will be picking with the second pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

With a loss in Week 16 to the New England Patriots, the Jaguars officially clinched a top two pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. However, their odds at the top pick are very slim with just one week left in the season.

The Chiefs officially clinched a lower strength of schedule than the Jaguars in Week 16 meaning that if the two teams have the same record at the end of the year, the Chiefs would select with the first overall selection. The only way the Jaguars can secure the top selection in the draft is if the Chiefs are somehow able to upset the Denver Broncos in Week 17.

With playoffs seeding on the line, the Broncos won't be sitting their starters and even if the Chiefs were able to end their season with an unlikely exclamation point, it's certainly no guarantee that the Jaguars lose to the Tennessee Titans.

If the two teams finish with the same record, they would alternate selections in each round, though. The Chiefs would select first in the 1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th rounds, while the Jaguars would select in the 2nd, 4th and 6th rounds. With just one week of games left to play in the season, here is the current order for the 2013 NFL Draft:
