The first 20 draft slots are determined by regular-season record, and the ensuing spots hinge on when teams get knocked out of the playoffs. Because Miami had the second-worst record of playoff teams eliminated in the opening weekend, it gets pick No. 22. Detroit (9-7) landed 21st, and the Giants (11-5) were 23rd, followed by the Raiders (12-4).
Here are the first 24 picks of the upcoming draft:
5. Titans (via trade; would have gone to Rams)
12. Browns (via trade; would have gone to Eagles)
14t. Colts (tie between Colts and Eagles has yet to be broken)
14t. Eagles (via trade; would have gone to Vikings)
