NFL Draft Order 2014: Shakeup in the top five

New, comments

The Jacksonville Jaguars still have the top pick in the draft, but we're seeing a lot of movement in the top five.

We've seen a bit of a shakeup in the top five of the draft today, with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers winning their second game of the season and dropping all the way to the fourth pick. If the Minnesota Vikings lose today (Update: they did), which it sure looks like at this point, the Bucs will drop a little further to the fifth overall pick. The Bucs have one the toughest full-season strength of schedule in the NFL, and that's the first tiebreaker for draft order.

As it stands right now, several teams will have to make some tough decisions on quarterbacks at the top of the draft. The Falcons are likely to take a lineman on either side of the ball, and the Jaguars are all but guaranteed to pick Teddy Bridgewater. Beyond that, though, will the Texans stick with Keenum? Can the Vikings trust Ponder (I doubt it)? Will there be a quarterback upgrade for the Bucs, or do they stick with Mike Glennon?

Today marks the first time we've incorporated playoff scenarios, which currently work by using the official playoff seeds. Picks 21 through 32 will be distributed among playoff teams, in reverse finishing order.

We'll keep the table below updated throughout the day, and we have a static page with a constantly updated 2014 NFL draft order, too.
