NFL Draft Order 2015: Jacksonville takes over the top spot

New, comments

The NFL draft order changes once again, as the Jacksonville Jaguars claim the top spot. For now.

We have some genuine change at the top of the draft! For the first time in weeks, the Jacksonville Jaguars take over the top spot in the draft, thanks to their inferior strength of schedule. And we see a similar changing of the guards at the number two spot, with the Tennessee Titans barely edging out the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Obviously those strengths of schedule can change fairly rapidly, though.

Beyond that, the New York Jets are waiting in the wings and Washington isn't far behind, either. It's a tight race for the top draft pick at the top, with several quarterback-needy teams, adding to the intrigue. Will the Oakland Raiders be content to go with Derek Carr? Who will the Bucs or Titans or Jets prefer to draft?

This draft order does not yet include Sunday Night Football. Numbers 21-32 are determined based on current playoff standings.
