NFL Draft Order: Cowboys to select No. 19 in first round

The Giants (3-13) clinched the No. 2 pick despite their 18-10 win over the Washington Redskins, a week after the winless Cleveland Browns secured the top position.

As it turned out, the Colts did the Giants a favor by defeating the Texans 22-13.

And with five picks in the first two rounds, the Browns better find their next quarterback or they might never.

With the Texans' loss, the Browns locked up the No. 1 and No. 4 picks in the draft, and the Colts will select at No. 3.

The Texans' pick, acquired in a trade for quarterback Deshaun Watson last April, can be as high as No. 4 and no lower than fifth overall. The Browns then took Jabrill Peppers with the 25th pick.

The Browns also own the Texans' second-round pick after taking on Brock Osweiler's $16 million contract in March.

But not only did the Raiders and 49ers finish with the same record, but they also finished with identical.512 strength of schedules, which is used as the second tiebreaker for positioning in the NFL Draft.

Cleveland became the second team in National Football League history to finish a season 0-16, securing the No. 1 overall pick for the second consecutive season in the process.

There will be a lot of coaches looking for work soon, some have already been let go.

The Colts (4-12) will pick third, followed by the Browns again, the Broncos (5-11), Jets, Buccaneers, Bears.

The first 20 picks of the 2018 NFL Draft are set with picks 21-32 to be decided by playoff results. Dolphins (6-10) 12. Bengals (7-9) 13/14.
