2023 NFL Draft first round order is coming into shape

With two more teams being eliminated from the playoffs, the 2023 NFL Draft order is slowly beginning to shape some shape as the season begins to conclude.  With only a few weeks left in the 2022 season, the playoff losers are locking the the order of their draft picks for 2023.

Yesterday, the Jaguars and Giants both lost and have now locked in their first round pick for the 2023 NFL Draft.  Both teams enjoyed surprise seasons on the backs of excellent coaching and efficient quarterback play.

The fanbases of both teams should be extremely encouraged for the future of the franchises.

The Jacksonville Jaguars will be picking 25th overall in the upcoming draft, which is slotted as the “Divisional Round Losers” section of the draft board.

Tankathon.com keeps an update list of the first round draft order.  Obviously, the New York Giants are picking 26th overall.

Right now, the remaining teams are the Dallas Cowboys, Cincinnati Bengals, San Francisco 49ers, Buffalo Bills, Kansas City Chiefs, and Philadelphia Eagles.

Each team will have their own first round pick as of now except the San Francisco 49ers.  Their first round pick belongs to the Denver Broncos, who received that pick when they traded Bradley Chubb to the Miami Dolphins.

This was one of the first round picks that the 49ers traded to be able to trade up in the 2021 NFL Draft to select Trey Lance, who may not even be on the 49ers’ roster come 2023.

The two losing tams today will then be slotted in the 27th and 28th overall slots in the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft.

Then, the losers of each conference championship game next week will be slotted in the 29th and 30th overall slots, and the two Super Bowl teams will be picking 31st and 32nd overall in the upcoming draft.
