NFL Draft Order 2011: NFL Releases Official Order Pre-Playoffs

The NFL released the official 2011 NFL Draft order today. There are still 12 teams in the playoffs that will impact the end of the order, but the first 20 picks are ready to go. The San Francisco 49ers are locked in at number seven. The Raiders are 17th in the draft order, although they do not have their first round pick courtesy of the trade in which they acquired Richard Seymour from the New England Patriots.

The 49ers are currently tied with six other teams at 6-10. However, the first tiebreaker is strength of schedule, which the 49ers lead the entire group at .488. The Raiders are tied with Jacksonville at 8-8, but they trail Jacksonville courtesy of a .469 strength of schedule. Unlike last year, it appears no coin flips will be required to separate out teams as strength of schedule appears able to break any and all ties. We’ll have an update later with all trades and how that impacts draft order.
