Dolphins to Pick First in Draft, Rams Second, Patriots Seventh
The league announced the tentative selection order for the NFL draft in April.
The Miami Dolphins will have the top overall choice and the St. Louis Rams will pick second. The Atlanta Falcons or Oakland Raiders will select third, to be determined by a coin flip because they're tied in the strength-of-schedule tiebreaker. The Kansas City Chiefs also are tied, but will pick after the Raiders because the Raiders finished behind the Chiefs in the AFC West.
The New England Patriots, they of the 16-0 regular season record, have the seventh overall choice, having obtained the first-round pick of the San Francisco 49ers in a trade. The Patriots have been stripped of their own first-rounder by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell as punishment for the spying incident in the opening week of the season.
The tentative draft order looks like this:
7. Patriots (from 49ers)
22. Cowboys (from Browns)#
32. void (Patriots lose own selection)#
*To be determined by coin flip
#Subject to result of playoffs; the Super Bowl loser picks 31st and the Super Bowl winner picks 32nd
