    2007 NFL Draft Order

    Here is what the 2007 draft order looks like as of today.
    The NFL determines draft order based purely on record and opponent's winning percentages.
    Head to head games and common opponents are not taken into consideration.
    The numbers for the opponent's wins include each teams opponents for next week as well, not just the teams that they have played to date.
    Obviously, these numbers do not take into consideration playoff performances.


    In the case of a tie, I have listed the teams in alphabetical order with duplicate pick numbers. The NFL resolves any ties at the end of the season via a coin flip.
    Pick # Team Record Opp's Wins (full season)
    ================================================== =============
    Pick: 1
    Detroit 2-13 127
    Pick: 2
    Oakland 2-13 129
    Pick: 3
    Cleveland 4-11 128
    Pick: 4
    Tampa Bay 4-11 130
    Pick: 5
    Arizona 5-10 118 vs San Diego

    Houston 5-10 127 vs Cleveland
    Pick: 6
    Washington 5-10 130 vs Giants

    Kansas City 8-7 118
    Pick: 20
    Jacksonville 8-7 126
    Pick: 21
    Cincinnati 8-7 128

    Pick: 28
    New England 11-4 121
    Pick: 29
    Indianapolis 11-4 122
    Pick: 30
    Baltimore 12-3 113
    Pick: 31
    Chicago 13-2 100
    Pick: 32
    San Diego 13-2 110
    Obviously, Minnesota's draft order can change based on whether they win or lose.
    Below are the best case (from a draft perspective) and worst case scenarios.

    Minnesota Loses:

    Best Case Scenario - Arizona, Houston, and Washington all win and Minnesota gets the #5 pick
    Pick: 5
    Minnesota 6-10 117

    Pick: 6
    Arizona 6-10 118
    Pick: 7
    San Francisco 6-10 120
    Pick: 8
    Houston 6-10 127
    Pick: 9
    Washington 6-10 130
    Pick: 9
    Miami 6-10 130
    Worst Case Scenario - AZ, HO, and WA all lose, and Minnesota keeps the 8th pick

    Minnesota Wins:

    Best Case Scenario - So does Atlanta and Green Bay, Minnesota drops to the 9th Pick

    Worst Case Scenario - Every other 6-9 and 7-8 team loses and Minnesota drops to the 11th pick
    Pick: 8
    Atlanta 7-9 111
    Pick: 8
    St. Louis 7-9 111
    Pick: 10
    Green Bay 7-9 115
    Pick: 11
    Minnesota 7-9 116
    Pick: 12
    Carolina 7-9 117
    Pick: 13
    San Francisco 7-9 119
    Pick: 14
    Pittsburgh 7-9 123
    Pick: 15
    NY Giants 7-9 128
    Pick: 16
    Miami 7-9 129
    Pick: 17
    Buffalo 7-9 139
    As you can see, the very best Minnesota can end up with is the 5th overall, and the worst is the 11th overall.
    This should make for a very exciting draft come April.
    Since I honestly expect the Vikes to lose to St Louis (who are still in the playoff hunt), I will be cheering for Arizona, Houston, and Washington this weekend!

    Re: 2007 NFL Draft Order

    I would certainly hope with a top 10 pick we could get one of the top WR's in the draft.
    Maybe not Calvin Johnson or Jarrett, but there's got to be some talent there.
    Ginn?
    I'm certainly no Mel Kiper, who I'm not a big fan of anyway, but he's usually fairly accurate in terms of where guys will be selected, not necessarily in how they'll fair in the NFL, but his projections are usually close as far as the picks go.

    Now that I think about this, the worst overall could end up being even lower, right, once ALL of the opponent wins from Sunday are calculated, right?
    Your totals go up by 1 for these teams, based on whether or not they win or lose, but it doesn't take all of the opponents into account, I believe....

    When determining draft order, only the team's record and opponent's overall win record are taken into consideration.
    Head to head games are not.


    If we finish with the same record as GB, their opponent's win record would be 115, and ours would be 116.
    Therefore they get the spot.

    Hmmm, I thought I took that into account, but you are right... there will be some additional movement based on all opponents win/loss...
    Good catch AWZ.
    There could be more movement in the 10-13 pick range based on how close they are.

    Great analysis! I was just thinking about how it would all work out for the Vikes the other day and had absolutely no idea.
