will 6-10/ 7-9 get us a top 5? doubt it, Cam is playing too good for us not to win at least 2 of the next 3

I was going to say the same thing. He's here for one reason only!

Star or Hankins would do wonders for our defense, pick up a FS in fa possibly and we have a top 10 possibly even top 5 defense next season.

Not reading this whole thread just to see if this was already said. With the way things happened yesterday we are now picking 7th behind the lions and eagles. 5 win teams currently go up to pick 13. With what we saw from the team yesterday, I won't be surprised if we pick outside the top 15.

Wrong. we hold tiebreakers over Lions, Cards and Titans. We pick 5th as of now

I don't think this is the first time Pat\ESPN has been wrong.

In the event of a tie draft order is decided by strength of schedule, the weaker the schedule the higher the pick. So in that case the order at this point is:

1. Kansas City (2-11) (.485)

2. Jacksonville (2-11) (.557)

3. Oakland (3-10) (.497)

4. Philadelphia (4-9) (.497)

5. Carolina (4-9) (.550)

6. Tennessee (4-9) (.554)

7. Detroit (4-9) (.560)

8. Arizona (4-9) (.563)

I'm gonna believe the leagues site. It's gonna change anyway though.

The league site isn't using tiebreakers in that link, it was only sorted by the team's winning percentage and then by alphabetical order it seems.

That's fair, but your source isn't the draft order, just the standings. The draft order isn't just the inverse order of the playoff standings, the tie-breakers are different. Here's a link to the playoff tiebreakers: http://www.nfl.com/standings/tiebreakingprocedures

If you recall, we lost a draft spot based on a coin flip last year, they didn't take into account all those various scenarios to break the tie. It's based on opponent win percentage and if that's a tie then they literally flip a coin.

But you're right, it'll change a lot in the next 3 weeks; fortunately for us we have a relatively weak schedule the rest of the way.
