NFL Draft Order 2014: Giants hold first overall pick, Jaguars fourth

Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

As things stand right now, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers hold the third overall pick in the race of the winless teams.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 0-4 as are three other teams. While the season isn't technically over, it's becoming exceedingly unlikely that these teams are going to get to the playoffs or do much winning this season. Which means we can start carefully looking toward the draft. Who will win the race for Teddy Bridgewater? Where will Jadeveon Clowney land?

The current draft order has the New York Giants with the first overall pick, while the Pittsburgh Steelers come in second, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers third and the Jacksonville Jaguars fourth. It amuses me to no end that despite being objectively and indisputably the absolute worst team in the league, the Jaguars still come in fourth in the draft order right now. Oh Jaguars, you can't even win at losing.

A note on tiebreakers: strength of schedule is the main tiebreakers, with divisional and conference tiebreakers to be applied if they're not sufficient. Coin flips break any remaining ties. Draft picks 21-32 are distributed among playoff teams based on their playoff finish, and win-loss record within playoff tiers. I did note take that into account in this order, mostly because it's still so early in the season.

This draft order comes ahead of tonight's game between the Miami Dolphins and New Orleans Saints, which would obviously affect the standings. Most notably, if the Dolphins win the Buccaneers overtake the Steelers for the second overall pick.
