NFL draft order 2018: Pick selections take shape as regular season ends

This post was originally published on this site

The top of the 2018 NFL draft order is set. The Cleveland Browns are picking first for the second consecutive season.

The last team to pick No. 1 overall in back-to-back drafts was who else but the Browns. They selected Tim Couch and Courtney Brown with the top picks in the 1999 and 2000 drafts, respectively.

Thanks to a trade with the Houston Texans during the 2017 NFL Draft, the Browns are also set up with two top-five picks after Houston finished the season 4-12 with a Week 17 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. That locked up the No. 4 pick for the Browns, just behind the Giants (No. 2) and the Colts (No. 3).

The first 20 picks will be decided in Week 17, but the final 12 won’t be determined until the playoffs are through. The four teams that are eliminated in the Wild Card round will own picks 21-24, and so on, until the Super Bowl loser picks No. 31 and the team that hoists the Lombardi Trophy gets the No. 32 pick.

Here is the 2018 NFL Draft order as it stands:
