2024 NFL Draft Order: First Round Pick Decided, Playoffs on the Line in Week 18

After 17 weeks of NFL action, there’s a lot to still play for in Week 18.

Several spots in the playoffs are up for grabs for the teams still in the hunt. However, for the other organizations already eliminated from postseason contention, Week 18 will mostly decide where they will pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.

With one week left in the regular season, only one first-round pick is locked in: the Chicago Bears hold the first overall pick via the Carolina Panthers. It’s the second year in a row Chicago holds the first pick after trading the 2022 pick to the Panthers.

Here’s how the NFL Draft order currently stands, using teams’ records and strength-of-schedule tiebreakers as our guide.
