NFL Draft Order 2014, Week 9: Buccaneers take first overall pick

New, comments

At least there's a minor positive for Tampa Bay Buccaneers fans: the Bucs currently hold the first pick of the 2014 NFL Draft.

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have taken the first pick of the draft, for now at least. The difference with the Jacksonville Jaguars is minimal as per usual, but it's starting to look like the Bucs are going to have the worse strength of schedule -- and hence the winning tiebreaker if both teams finish with the same record. The Minnesota Vikings are angling in, too, though, and their strength of schedule is significantly worse.

None of these teams is likely to go winless the rest of the season, mostly because going winless is just very very hard. The Jaguars are clearly the worst team and have the best chance of going winless, at least, but the Bucs are trying very, very hard to lose every game regardless of how well they play.

Bucs fans and Jaguars fans can now start a great interstate rivalry for the rest of the season: which team will lose more games? Oh boy. Can't wait.
