  • Who gets #1 pick if the Rams, Bucs, and Browns all end the season with most losses?

    Who gets the #1 pick if all three teams end up 1-15 or 2-14? I read on wikipedia that it's determined by strength of schedule, in which case the Rams would probably get the #1 pick. Is this correct?

    incorrect since the Rams have the toughest schedule they move down not up. So we are currently picking 3rd I believe.

    On a Random note as long as we are picking behind Tampa or not picking first for that matter The Ndominator will not be in gold and blue.

      Hmm, I'm really hoping we can get Suh...

      It'll certainly make things interesting for us. I'd be very tempted to trade up...

        Browns won today, so you can throw them out of the mix.

            I hope Tampa wins one more. We need Suh on this team.

            Until Shurmur leaves, I don't want any offensive first rounders, because as of now, they will be a huge waste unless you are Steven Jackson.

            I understand you want to build the team around SJax, but we did everything around SJax today. Rather predictable.

              Whoah...I really read that score wrong. I must have thought they had 20 instead of 30. I was wondering why I didn't hear more about it.

                So if the Rams are tied with the worst record and they have the toughest schedule, they don't pick first?

                  You're right on the money 39:

                  Remaining ties are broken by strength of schedule. For draft order, a lower strength of schedule results in an earlier pick.

                    If two teams are tied, the team whose opposition has the lower win-loss percentage picks first. Which probably makes sense, because teams who go 1-15 against poorer competition should pick before teams who go 1-15 over (slightly) stronger competition.

                    Going into this weekend's games, the 1-10 Browns were on track to pick before the 1-10 Rams, as the Browns' opponents have a win percentage of .534 while the Rams' opponents were at .545.

                    The two could have flipped if the Cardinals had lost to the Vikings tonight and the Ravens beat the Packers tomorrow (haven't done the math, going by what Great Blue North draft report is implying). But the Cardinals won, which will strengthen the Rams' opponents' percentage.

                    If the order stays as it is and the Rams pick second behind Cleveland, then the question becomes whether or not the Browns want to add a player like Suh to be their Richard Seymour-type player on the D-line? They've got Shaun Rogers on the nose but could use an upgrade next to him at DE.

                    Suh becomes even more intriguing to them if Brady Quinn continues to look solid for the remainder of the year, as he's two especially good games statistically in the last three weeks (vs. Detroit, vs. San Diego). Plus, if Mangini is on the hot seat in Cleveland, the Browns may not want him to draft a quarterback as "his guy" for fear that he won't mesh with the next coach.

                      After thinking about it, I figured this was probably the rationale.

                      Obviously a lot can still change before anything is decided.

                        Looking at it right now, the rams would pick 2nd

                          So the question is who does the Rams pick if...

                          1. Cleveland - Suh
                          2. Rams - ????

                              Maybe we are going to be the number #1 team for the draft pick.

                              Browns D and special teams winning one for them....8 sacks....impressive. That may be the way we have to get a win also.

                                ....puts us one step closer in the Donkey Kong sweepstakes. I suppose that's a good thing in this most miserable of seasons. Their win last night gives the Rams the #1 overall pick, currently. A couple of games, this weekend, of interest in the Rams draft order situation:

                                Bucs over the Jets (obviously)
                                Dolphins over the Jags (this boosts the Bucs SOS and drops ours)
                                Titans over the.......(I just can't do it; I refuse to root against the Rams)

                                cleveland won the coin flip and will pick 3rd. tampa will pick 4th. I think the browns take brady quinn and tampa takes calvin johnson if he is still on the board.

                                Suppose we end up with #1 pick and Browns want that #1 pick. Do we ask for both of their #1's? What else? You think they want to stay with Colt McCoy?

                                I know it takes a willing parting so my question is has anything in the FA made a partner more likely? For instance would Cleveland be a little more willing now that the Chiefs have got Cassel and would almost certainly take Curry if we don't?

                                Browns GM talks draft, free agency

                                Updated: March 8, 2012, 5:56 PM ET
                                ESPN.com news services

                                BEREA, Ohio -- Cleveland Browns general manager Tom Heckert acknowledged Thursday that he has had talks with the St. Louis Rams about the No. 2 overall pick, but he wouldn't classify them as "serious."

                                He was asked if the Browns would be willing to give up both their first-round picks to go higher.

                                "I'd never say never about anything," said Heckert, who plans to attend Robert Griffin III's pro day workout on March 21.

                                Heckert met informally Thursday with reporters for the first time since undergoing heart surgery last month. A few pounds lighter, he recently returned to the office after recovering at home and missing the scouting combine in Indianapolis, where the Browns snared an up-close look at Griffin, Baylor's talented Heisman Trophy winner.

                                With the No. 4 overall pick, the Browns may have a chance to select Griffin, considered the best QB prospect in this year's draft behind Stanford's Andrew Luck, who is expected to be taken first by the Colts. But with Griffin's stock soaring and several teams desperate for a franchise quarterback, Cleveland, which also owns the No. 22 pick, likely would have to trade up to get St. Louis' pick at No. 2 -- if they want Griffin.

                                It's possible the Browns could wind up in a bidding war with several teams for a shot at Griffin. Heckert treasures draft picks and might be unwilling to part with any of Cleveland's selections. But the price might be worth it if the Browns, who have three of the top 37 picks, feel Griffin can reshape a franchise that has just one playoff appearance since 1999 and was the only AFC North team not in the playoffs last season.

                                Heckert called all the speculation about a possible trade with St. Louis preliminary and labeled media reports as "crazy." He also said it's possible the Browns might hold onto their first pick.

                                "We feel very comfortable staying at four and getting a good player there, and that could happen," he said. "And we feel comfortable in moving down and getting more picks, we really do. It's way early to start talking about this stuff."

                                Heckert said the Browns believe there are four quality quarterbacks in this year's draft class. In addition to Luck and Griffin, Heckert mentioned Texas A&M's Ryan Tannehill "untapped" and Oklahoma State's Brandon Weeden "super smart" during his 30-minute interview session. Heckert said he's eager to see the 28-year-old Weeden throw at his pro day on Friday.

                                And while the focus has been on jockeying for position to possibly get Griffin, Heckert said the Browns have not given up on Colt McCoy, who had an inconsistent season as a full-time starter.

                                "We're not down on Colt McCoy, so I just...
