2014 NFL Draft order: Jaguars have No. 4 overall pick currently

New, comments

While the Jacksonville Jaguars may look like the worst team in the NFL, as it stands right now, they don't have the No. 1 overall pick.

Mike Ehrmann

The Jacksonville Jaguars are sitting at 0-4 on the season and look like the worst team in the NFL, but that doesn't mean they're in the lead for the No. 1 overall pick. If the season were to end right now, the Jaguars would pick No. 4 overall, behind the New York Giants, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Why?

Strength of schedule.

Pick Team Win Loss SoS Win SoS Loss
1 NYG 0 4 32 30
2 PIT 0 4 35 27
3 TB 0 4 34 25
4 JAC 0 4 40 24
5 PHI 1 3 27 36
6 WSH 1 3 28 35
7 MIN 1 3 29 32
8 ATL 1 3 30 28
9 OAK 1 3 34 30
10 STL 1 3 34 28

Now, compared to some of the other teams it certainly looks like the Jaguars are in the driver's seat for the No. 1 overall pick going forward, but as we've said in the past, if you're going to be bad... you better be really bad and ensure you get the top pick.
