If the NFL season ended after week 11, what would the NFL 2017 Draft Order be?
Through 11 weeks of the NFL season, most teams still sit in the playoff hunt. There are 19 teams that have between four and six wins so far. It means that through the next six weeks there can be a lot of shuffling. With that said, what would the NFL draft order be if the season ended today?

The Tennessee Titans will receive the Los Angeles Rams first round pick this season due to the Jared Goff trade. The Cleveland Browns will receive the Philadelphia Eagles first round pick due to the Carson Wentz trade. Also, the Eagles will get the Minnesota Vikings first round pick due to the Sam Bradford trade.
The fight for the number one pick will still be up for grabs through the last six weeks. There are essentially five teams with a possible chance to bring home the top pick. The Jets have the fifth overall pick currently, and with three wins may have won too many games to land the top overall spot. The Jaguars and Bears are sitting at 2-8 which gives them a legitimate chance to get the top pick. The Bears are losing Jay Cutler and with Blake Bortles declining every week, there is a chance neither team wins again this season. Speaking of, the Browns and 49ers are likely playing to lose at this point. We know where both teams sit, and without real playoff hopes, any win will only hurt their cause in the long term.
