Dwight Jones WR North Carolina
Doesn't it still go by record, or is the Super Bowl winner automatically last?
The Super Bowl winner is 32 and Super Bowl loser is 31.
The losers of the Conference Championship games select 29 and 30 based on record.
The losers of the Divisional playoff games select 25 -28 based record.
The losers of the Wild Card games select 21 - 24 based on record.
Teams that missed the the playoffs select 1 - 20 with worse record going first.
This assumes all 32 teams are eligible for a 1st round pick.
Per wiki, and yes it's right this time:
Teams that reached the playoffs the previous season are then slotted in the order in which they were eliminated as indicated in the table below. Within each tier, the slotting is determined as above (i.e. worst record picks first and the same tiebreakers apply).
Non-playoff teams 1–20 (slotted by record)
Eliminated in Wild Card round 21–24
Eliminated in Divisional round 25–28
Eliminated in Conference Championships 29–30
Super Bowl losing team 31
Super Bowl champion 32
I hope they end up drafting these 3 of these 4 players even if they have to trade up to get them.
OL- Cordy Glenn, Brandon Washington.
DL - Josh Chapman
WR- Jordan White.
Anyone of these players would do: Alshon Jeffery (WR), Peter Konz (C), or Alfonzo Dennard (CB).
Fixed it for you. LOL I agree completely.
I did a poor job this season following the draft eligible players. Position-wise, I'm leaning towards the following (in no particular order):
OG/OT - I'm not entirely pleased with our pass pro on the right.
WR - Would love a studly #2 that soaks up knowledge from AJ.
CB - If a stud CB/DB is there, why not.
NT - I like Cody/Mitchell but if we can find the next Duane Brown at the NT position I'd like it.
As of now, I don't really think we have a DEFINITE NEED. I think there are areas where we can improve but I don't think we have a true legit weakness like we have in the past. I'm a firm believer in taking the best players available and getting the best talent for your team. That draft mindset paid off this season with all the injuries and new guys needing to step up.
Wolfe (JJ Watt clone)
Kuechly ( reminds me of zack Thomas )
Worthy ( a bigger Antonio Smith)
Those are my late first guys that you don't hear about much but are going to shoot up the draft board at the combine.
I think it all comes down to how Free Agency goes for us. We could potentially lose Myers, Brisiel and Mario, any of which will drastically change our needs. If Mario walks, OLB will need some depth, if we lose either olinemen we need to fill that hole ASAP. Once we know that we can really key in on who to pick. At this point I would go WRin the first assuming we retain those free agents.
Alshon Jeffery sounds good to me.
Worthy would be a great pick for our 1 gap NT system. I wouldn't mind Brandon Thompson either, very similar to Worthy.
Jeffery and Dennard will both be gone by the time we pick, Konz is a possibility but most likely gone as well.
Peyton Manning, QB
Can't beat 'em, join 'em
I'd love to get Kuechly but he will be long gone by the time we pick somewhere between 25 and 32, and I hope it's 32 . Wolfe is flying under the radar right now but that will probably change after the Combine and Pro-Days. I'd love to get him too. He's listed as 6'5" and 302 lbs and has a "relentless motor." I think he would be a great fit at NT for us and let Mitchell slide over to DE and spot Smith and Watt.
Right now Wolfe is rated as a 2nd rounder but is climbing up the draft boards. The Texans would probably have to take him with their 1st pick because he won't be there for them in the 2nd. I just don't know if they will go defense in the 1st again with their need at WR. Smith/Kubes like to draft BPA at a position of need in the 1st. Brown and Cushing come to mind. A lot will depend on if Wade comes back as DC again and how much they want to draft on defense. I have a feeling this draft they go more heavily on offense since last year they focused on defense. JMO.
I like jeffery 1st if hes there. If he's gone, the dt from washington.
I would pay Brisiel and Myers because they are both good enough for the zone blocking scheme JMHO.
You heard it here first. Would mean Texans let Mario become a free agent, so they can re-sign Arian Foster to a multi-year million dollar contract.
