The draft order is determined by the previous season’s standings, with the team with the worst record selected first in each round. This order is reversed for each subsequent round, except for the Super Bowl champion, who receives the final seed in each round.


Tiebreakers are used to determine draft order if two or more teams finish with the same record. The first tiebreaker is the strength of the schedule, which takes into account the combined winning percentage of a team’s opponents from the previous season.

Compensatory picks:

These picks are awarded to teams that have lost more or better free agents than they have signed in the previous year. The exact formula for determining compensatory picks is not publicized by the NFL, but it takes into account factors such as the value of the players lost and signed.

Draft pick trades

Teams can trade draft picks with each other before or during the draft. The value of each pick is determined by a chart created by the NFL that assigns a point value to each draft pick based on the expected value of the player selected with that pick.
