NFL Draft Order for Top 20 picks


With week 17 mostly over, the top 20 picks for the 2015 NFL Draft’s 1st round have been set.  The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were able to secure the 1st overall pick and will have the honor of kicking this year’s draft off with Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota as the heavy favorite to be the selection.  The Tennessee Titans, Jacksonville Jaguars, Oakland Raiders and Washington Redskins round out the top 5 picks.

The 18th and 19th picks will need a coin flip to decide who has the pick between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Diego Chargers.  The Cleveland Browns currently sit as the only team with two 1st round selections, having their own pick at 12 and the Buffalo Bills’ selection at 19 from a deal in last year’s draft that enabled the Bills to select wide receiver Sammy Watkins from Clemson with the 4th overall pick.  Here is how the rest of the draft currently lays out:

1. Tampa Bay
2. Tennessee
3. Jacksonville
4. Oakland
5. Washington
6. New York Jets
7. Chicago
8. Atlanta
9. New York Giants
10. St. Louis
11. Minnesota
12. Cleveland
13. New Orleans
14. Miami
15. San Francisco
16. Houston
17. Kansas City/San Diego
18. Kansas City/San Diego
19. Cleveland (from Buffalo)
20. Philadelphia

The rest of the draft order will be determined by the playoffs as well as the Sunday Night Matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers.
