Not quite sure how this works. Miami and Buffalo both finish 6-10. Miami finishes 3rd in the division, ahead of the Bills, but has an easier schedule. So does Miami pick before Buffalo, even though they finished better in the division?

Miami does indeed finish with a higher draft pick than Buffalo. Division wins don't mean anything in draft order. What matters is strength of schedule.

I will post the draft order on the main site after the Cowboys / Giants game tonight.

We know it's Colts #1, Rams #2 and Vikings #3 though.

Cleveland will choose fourth and Tampa Bay will have the fifth pick unless they can overcome a 42-7 halftime deficit (not likely.)

Ok, thanks everyone. Just one of those many things that stump me

Yeah, I screwed that up. Cards would be #14 in that scenario. Seattle would be #11.

The Browns almost won and lost the 4th and gave the Bucs the 4th pick.

The tiebreaker for the draft is the same tiebreaker for the division.

3rd in the AFC East means that they will pick after the Bills.

What difference would it have made?
#4 TB - Claiborne, Richardson
#5 Cle - RG3, Richardson

#4 Cle - RG3, Richardson

Just updated the draft order. Looks like there will be a couple of coin flips!

I'm somewhat annoyed that because of a pointless game, the Chargers will now pick at 18 rather than somewhere 11-13 (I think it would be 13 IIRC)

Same for the Bears. Would it have killed us to play Enderle some?

Any idea when they flip the coins? Is it after the playoffs?

At the combine.

Yeah, turned out to be a huge difference. I didn't figure the Jets, Raiders, and Broncos would all lose. If they all won, that would have been a 2-spot difference. A loss would have meant 13th pick.
