2012 first-round draft order

Posted Feb 11, 2012


With the Super Bowl done, a coin flip next month remains to finalize the first-round draft order.

NOTES: Draft-order ties: The cumulative record of each team's opponents (strength of schedule) is used as the tie-breaker. The team with the weaker opponents receives drafting priority. Within a tied segment (teams with same record), teams that are not in the playoffs will be given priority. Teams within a tied segment that are involved in the playoffs will be seeded according to their progress in the playoffs. Playoff teams will not drop out of a tied segment unless they advance to the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl champion selects last and the runner-up selects 31st.

ROUND 1: April 26 at 7 p.m. CT / ROUNDS 2-3: April 27 at 6 p.m. CT / ROUNDS 4-7: April 28 at 11 a.m. CT
