NFL draft order to change in 2010

Posted by Chris Brown on March 25, 2009 – 7:55 pm

Looks like the NFL owners were very much in favor of changing the draft order at the bottom of the first round and subsequent rounds thereafter. At the league meetings they voted to reseed playoffs teams in the draft order based on when they exited the playoffs.

So the Super Bowl participants will be the last two teams to pick in round one and beyond, until compensatory picks become a factor from round three on. 

I think there’s a lot of merit to that approach. Why should a Super Bowl winning team that goes 10-6 be able to pick 24th for example, ahead of teams it may have beaten in the postseason just because the other team had a better regular season record.

If you won the Super Bowl get to the back of the line. I’m all for it. What say you?
