2014 NFL Draft order: Jaguars move into top spot, despite win

Losses for the rest of the AFC South dropped the Jaguars' strength of schedule and a Monday Night Football win for the Buccaneers sent the Jaguars back to the top of the draft order.

Who says you can't have your cake and eat it too?

The Jacksonville Jaguars earned their first victory of the season on Sunday and still managed to move into control of the top pick in the 2014 NFL Draft...with breathing room too. A victory for the Jaguars was the only win in the AFC South, as the Titans, Texans and Colts each lost in Week 10.

The collectively bad week for the division dropped the strength of schedule of the Jaguars from .564 to .537, while wins for the Saints and Panthers helped to raise the Buccaneers strength of schedule from .560 to .568, and move them down to the second spot in the draft order after they earned their first win in Monday Night Football.

Here are the top 10 selections as they stand through the first 10 weeks of the season:

# Team Record Opp. Record SoS
1 Jacksonville Jaguars 1-8 79-68 0.537
2 Tampa Bay Buccaneers 1-8 84-64 0.568
3 Atlanta Falcons 2-7 79-68 0.537
4 Minnesota Vikings 2-7 80-68 0.541
5 Houston Texans 2-7 81-65 0.555
6 Buffalo Bills 3-7 75-70 0.517
7 Pittsburgh Steelers 3-6 72-75 0.490
8 Washington Redskins 3-6 76-72 0.514
9 Oakland Raiders 3-6 79-67 0.541
10 New York Giants 3-6 83-66 0.557
