Re: Current Draft Order
The "best guess" amoung drafniks is that playoff teams with the same reg season record, who were eliminated in the same round will rotate picks through the later rounds. Which means that the Pats will rotate picks #21 and #22 through all seven rounds with Cincy.
So the Pats will pick #22, #53, #85(OAK)(-1 pick, Washington forfeits pick #62 because they used their 3rd round pick in the supplemental draft last year).
After the third round the exact pick can not be determined yet, because the NFL will assign "comp picks" starting at the end of the 3rd round, so the number of comp picks for each round is unknown at this time. 32 Comp picks will be issued by the NFL (no more, no less and the Pats will receive 4 of them (most likely 1 6th, 3 7th round ones) and remember these picks can not be traded).
So the Pats will have the #21 pick in the 4th round, Oakland will have the Pats #22 pick in the 5th round. The Pats will have the #21 pick in the 6th round and the #22 pick in the 7th round.
We still do not know the exact position of the second round picks that the Pats got from Jacksonville and Tennesse are yet, as they as both still subject to seperate coin flips which will be conducted at the scouting combine.
The Jacksonville pick will either be #42 if they lose the coin flip with Chicago (who has actually traded that pick to Denver), or #44 if they win the coin flip.
The Tennesse pick will either be #47 if they win the coin flip with Carolina (who has acutally traded this pick to San Francisco), or #48 if they lose the coin flip.
The Jets look like a Super Bowl contender right now about as much as Rosie O’Donnell looks like a threat for the Miss America crown. -NY Post 12/19/2011
