The 2012 NFL season officially came to an end last Sunday and the postseason begins tomorrow. All NFL club’s personnel departments are busy preparing for free agency, when all clubs can engage in contract negotiations with certified agents of all players who will be unrestricted free agents at the end of the current league year. For me, the success and bloodline for every NFL franchise is the yearly draft.

The Kansas City Chiefs have won the honors of picking #1 overall in the upcoming 2013 NFL Draft, strength of schedule was the difference between the other 2-14 team, the Jacksonville Jaguars

The chart listed below and data was provided by NFL Communications

For the fourth consecutive year, the NFL Draft will kick off in primetime. The first round will be held on Thursday, April 25. The second and third rounds are held on Friday, April 26. While rounds four through seven are held on Saturday, April 27.

Below is the tentative draft order for 2013 Draft, The draft order is determined by the following procedures:

(A.) The winner of the Super Bowl will select last and the other Super Bowl participant next-to-last, regardless of their regular-season record.

(B.) The Championship Game participants not advancing to the Super Bowl will select 29th and 30th, according to the reverse order of their standing.

(C.) The Divisional Playoff participants not advancing to the Championship Games will select 25th through 28th, according to the reverse order of their standing.

(D.) The Wild Card participants not advancing to the Divisional Playoffs will select 21st through 24th, according to the reverse order of their standing.

(E.) Non-playoff clubs will select first through 20th, according to the reverse order of their standing.

If a tie exist in any grouping except (A.) above, they will be broken by strength of schedule (i.e., figuring the aggregate won-lost-tied percentage of each involved club’s regular-season opponents and awarding preferential selection order to the club which faced the schedule of teams with the lowest aggregate won-lost-tied percentage).

If a tie still exist after applying the strength of schedule tiebreaker, the divisional or conference tiebreakers are applied, if applicable. If the divisional or conference tiebreakers are not applicable, ties will be broken by a coin flip.

Clubs involved in two-club ties will alternate positions from round-to-round. In ties that involve three or more clubs, the club at the top of a tied segment in a given round will move to the bottom of the segment for the next round, while all other clubs in the segment move up one position. This rotation continues throughout the draft.

The NFL’s Competition Committee will once again review a 16 team playoff format this off season, can you imagine Bears, Giants, Cowboys and Steelers in the play-offs if that format was instituted today, and how will that effect the draft order once they make that change.
