    Competition Committee proposed change to draft order

    Good, this is something that should have been address long ago IMHO.

    http://www.profootballtalk.com/2009/03/19/competition-committee-proposes-change-to-draft-order/
    The Competition Committee has suggested re-ordering the bottom of round one of the draft based not upon the record of the playoffs teams, but when they exit the tournament.

    “A team can win a playoff game and yet get to pick [in the draft] before the team it beat,” Falcons president Rich McKay said.

    ...

    The Eagles, at No. 21, pick a spot before the Vikings, even though the Eagles beat the Vikings in the wild-card round.

    Also, the Eagles pick two spots before the Patriots, even though Philly played in the NFC title game.
    The Patriots, despite an 11-5 record, didn’t qualify for the postseason.

    Likewise, the Chargers pick at No. 16, before five teams that didn’t participate in a playoff game (Jets, Bears, Bucs, Cowboys, Pats) and eleven spots before the team San Diego beat in the playoffs, the Colts.

    Agreed, this should have been addressed years ago.

    This is a mode point the NFL will have a lotto systems (like the NBA) once it creates a rookie salary cap.

    Just a matter of time after the next CBA discussion their will be a rookie salary cap.
    300

    The rigors of Spartan life. Leonidas is cast out into the wild, and survives the harsh winter to return to his home, when he is crowned King ....a Viking!

    300

    I doubt that the NFL would go to a NBA-like lotto system.
    I might be missing something, but how would implementing a rookie salary cap (which they need to do) affect the draft format?

    But I, like others assumed it was based on where they finished in the playoffs. Like AZ for example record wise should be higher picking then where they are but becaus ethe lost the SB they get the second to last pick.
