The top 20 draft picks have been slotted with those teams out of the playoffs, but the bottom 16 draft picks in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft are yet to be determined by how far the playoff teams advance.
The Cleveland Browns hold the first pick in the draft and the 12th pick after getting the No. 12 pick as one of the three picks in the top 20 that were traded away. The Browns’ 12th pick comes from the Philadelphia Eagles, who have the 15th pick because of a trade with Minnesota Vikings. The Tennessee Titans own the fifth pick in the draft because of a trade with the Los Angeles Rams, making the Titans the second team to have two picks in the top 20 (they also have their original pick at 18).
The draft will be held on April 27-29 in Philadelphia.
The draft order is determined by the following procedures:
(A) The Super Bowl champion will select last and the loser of the Super Bowl next-to-last in all rounds, regardless of the record of such participating clubs in the regular season.
(B) The losers of the Conference Championship games shall select 29th and 30th in all rounds, according to the reverse order of their standing.
(C) The losers of the Divisional playoff games shall select in the 25th through 28th positions in all rounds, according to the reverse order of their standing.
(D) The losers of the Wild Card games shall select in the 21st through 24th positions in all rounds, according to the reverse order of their standing.
(E) Clubs not participating in the playoffs shall select in the first through 20th positions in all rounds, according to the reverse order of their standing.
If, after all the foregoing procedures have been applied, ties still exist in any grouping except (A) above, such ties shall be broken by figuring the aggregate won-lost-tied percentage of each involved club’s regular season opponents and awarding preferential selection order to the club which faced the schedule of teams with the lowest aggregate won-lost-tied percentage.
If ties still exist, the divisional or conference tie-breaking method, if applicable, shall be applied. If neither the divisional nor the conference tie-breaking methods are applicable, ties shall be broken by a coin flip.
Indianapolis and Minnesota have the same strength-of-schedule, and neither the divisional nor the conference tie-break applies; therefore, the tie for the 14th and 15th positions will be determined by a coin flip.
