The latest 2014 NFL Draft order has the the No. 1 overall pick down to just two teams: The Houston Texans or St. Louis Rams, who would earn the pick thanks to a trade with the Washington Redskins.
As far as the AFC North goes, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ hot-streak probably won’t land them in the playoffs, and it will also leave them picking in the 14-19 range, assuming they beat the Cleveland Browns Sunday. That’s the worst spot to be picking from, because it’s away from the more higher-ranked prospects, but it’s also in a spot for team not in the NFL playoffs.
And speaking of the Browns, they went from looking like a real contender in the AFC North in the first-half of the year, to now likely having a top-5 NFL Draft pick. They can climb to the No. 3 spot with a loss and a win by the Jacksonville Jaguars.
