Its comes down the the SOS at the end of the year. The team with the weakest schedule get the edge. If there can't not break a tie by that then it goes to Division wins and then Conferance wins and still can't break a tie then they flip a coin. The way its going it could come down to a game that neither of the teams are playing in weather they pick 5 or 1.

I believe it is just the opposite. The team that played the stronger schedule pick before the team that had it easier.
Naw, I am pretty sure it's the opposite of what you said. Example: Team A plays 8 playoff teams, and 8 non playoff teams and is 8-8. Team B plays NO playoff teams, and is 8-8. Team B would get the higher draft pick because they had an easier schedule, and still ended up with a poor record. The draft is set up to reward the teams who need help the most.

Okay, Stewie. If your right, then when the current draft order comes out later today, then it should be as follows:

Pk Teams Rec. Opp. Rec.
1) Texans 1-9 N/A
2) Titans 2-8 50-50
3) Saints 2-8 51-49
4) Packer 2-8 54-46
5) NYJets 2-8 57-43
6) 49ers 2-8 62-28

I guess we'll see.

Is it like that? I haven't looked, but I think that should be right. But now that you make me look at it, I think I could be way wrong. lol I am not sure now. We will see.

Where we need alot of help on both sides of the ball (and special teams, at times), I'd be cool to finagle two first rounders in Bush and Cutler....

Stewie, the new draft order is out and it goes as follows: Houston, Tenn, NY Jets, then New Orleans. How do you figure that? The Jets opponents have a 57-43 record and the Saints opponents have a 51-49 record. The Saints should pick before them. It doesn't make sense. Tennessee should pick second b/c their opponents have a 50-50 record. So, it isn't in order of worst opponent record to best opponent record. There must best something else to the formula. Does anyone know why the order is the way it is?

There is, however, one surefire way to leapfrog the Jets - lose to them on Sunday.

Uhm I hope you aren't using that website... that isn't the official website who controls the draft order. Right now the Saints are currently 3rd in the draft order. They are wrong.

Where did you find the "official website" with the draft order stating that the Saints were in third as of last week?

mjf, look at this:

http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/fea...raftorder.html

Notice, the teams that are tied. The ones with a WORSE SOS are higher, just like I said. If you play a weaker schedule, yet still have a bad record, you draft higher than a team with the same record that played a tougher schedule. It's how they promote parity. Notice: NYJ, SF, and GB are all 2-9. But NYJ SOS is .517, SF is .545 and GB is .551, and that is how NYJ is 2, SF 3 and GB 4. Same thing for all 3-8 teams. Same thing for all 4-7 teams. You will find the same thing on the entire draft order.
