And then there were 24.

With the Wild Card round now decided, four more teams have now been slotted into the NFL draft order, making mock drafts across the land just a little bit more accurate as 24 teams now know when they will be selecting this season.

April's event is the biggest offseason spectacle in all of sports, and certainly the most entertaining draft around. It's spread over three days, it features an array of trades and surprise picks and, given how popular college football is, it's the only sport other than basketball where we actually know who the players being drafted are.

I can't wait for this year's version.

This week, the Washington "Should-Have-Sat-RG3-Late-In-The-Game" Redskins, Cincinnati "Lost-To-The-Texans-Again" Bengals, Indianapolis "The-Future-Is-Still-Bright" Colts and Minnesota "Did-You-Ever-Think-You-Would-Miss-Christian-Ponder-This-Much?" Vikings all joined the draft pool.

Well, actually, the St. Louis Rams joined the first round for a second time, as they own the Redskins' first pick after last year's Robert Griffin III trade.

Next weekend, four more teams—and four more devastated fanbases—will join the NFL draft pool. But for now, we can safely slot 24 teams into a draft position.

Without further ado, here's the updated draft order for those 24 teams. 


1. Kansas City Chiefs (2-14)

2. Jacksonville Jaguars (2-14)

3. Oakland Raiders (4-12)

4. Philadelphia Eagles (4-12)

5. Detroit Lions (4-12)

6. Cleveland Browns (5-11)

7. Arizona Cardinals (5-11)

8. Buffalo Bills (6-10)

9. New York Jets (6-10)

10. Tennessee Titans (6-10)

11. San Diego Chargers (7-9)

12. Miami Dolphins (7-9)

13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-9)

14. Carolina Panthers (7-9)

15. New Orleans Saints (7-9)

16. St. Louis Rams (7-8-1)

17. Pittsburgh Steelers (8-8)

18. Dallas Cowboys (8-7)

19. New York Giants (9-7)

20. Chicago Bears (10-6)

21. Cincinnati Bengals (10-6)

22. St. Louis Rams (via Washington Redskins) (10-6)

23. Minnesota Vikings (10-6)

24. Indianapolis Colts (11-5)


If the season ended today, here's how the rest of the draft order would look. I'm still debating over the NFC games, so I decided against making my predictions here.


25. Baltimore Ravens (10-6)

26. Seattle Seahawks (11-5)

27. Green Bay Packers (11-5)

28. San Francisco 49ers (11-4-1)

29. Houston Texans (12-4)

30. New England Patriots (12-4)

31. Atlanta Falcons (13-3)

32. Denver Broncos (13-3)
