PITTSBURGH–The Dolphins will select 22nd overall in the 2017 NFL Draft after their first-round loss to the Steelers on Sunday.

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:

1. Browns
2. 49ers
3. Bears
4. Jaguars
5. Titans (via trade; would have gone to Rams)
6. Jets
7. Chargers
8. Panthers
9. Bengals
10. Bills
11. Saints
12. Browns (via trade; would have gone to Eagles)
13. Cardinals
14t. Colts (tie between Colts and Eagles has yet to be broken)
14t. Eagles (via trade; would have gone to Vikings)
16. Ravens
17. Redskins
18. Titans
19. Buccaneers
20. Broncos
21. Lions
22. Dolphins
23. Giants
24. Raiders
