Updated NFL Draft order after Week 16.


With week 16 of the season over, here’s what the 2023 NFL Draft order looks like.

Week 16 of the 2022 NFL season wasn’t as chaotic as the previous week, but it still provided fans with entertainment and great games. When it comes to best games, it’s hard to overlook the Minnesota Vikings-New York Giants game, in addition to the Dallas Cowboys vs Philadelphia Eagles contest.

But when it comes to the order of the 2023 NFL Draft, he appeared to be upset when the Houston Texans secured a 19-14 victory over the Tennessee Titans after intercepting quarterback Malik Willis twice. The Texans earned their second win of the season as a result, but fans wondered if that ruined the team’s chances of securing the No. 1 pick and potentially their future quarterback.

Let’s take a look at the order of the NFL Draft 2023 after Week 16.

Updated NFL Draft 2023 order after Week 16.

Here’s the exact draft order for picks 1-31. Remember, the Miami Dolphins had their first-round pick stripped due to the Tom Brady manipulation investigation, resulting in 31 first-round picks and not the usual 32.

  1. Houston Texans (2-12-1)
  2. Chicago Bears (3-12)
  3. Seattle Seahawks (via Denver Broncos (4-11))
  4. Arizona Cardinals (4-11)
  5. Indianapolis Colts (4-10-1)
  6. Atlanta Falcons (5-10)
  7. Detroit Lions (via Los Angeles Rams (5-10))
  8. Carolina Panthers (6-9)
  9. Vegas Raiders (6-9)
  10. Philadelphia Eagles (via New Orleans Saints (6-9))
  11. Houston Texans (via Cleveland Browns (6-9))
  12. Seattle Seahawks (7-8)
  13. Tennessee Titans (7-8)
  14. New England Patriots (7-8)
  15. New York Jets (7-8)
  16. Pittsburgh Steelers (7-8)
  17. Green Bay Packers (7-8)
  18. Detroit Lions (7-8)
  19. Jacksonville Jaguars (7-8)
  20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-8)
  21. Washington Commanders (7-7-1)
  22. New York Giants (8-6-1)
  23. Los Angeles Chargers (9-6)
  24. Baltimore Ravens (10-5)
  25. Denver Broncos (via San Francisco 49ers (11-4))
  26. Cincinnati Bengals (11-4)
  27. Dallas Cowboys (11-4)
  28. Kansas City Chiefs (12-3)
  29. Minnesota Vikings (12-3)
  30. Buffalo Bills (12-3)
  31. Philadelphia Eagles (13-2)

Even with this win, the Texans retain first place in the draft order. Houston has been playing hard lately, including holding off the Dallas Cowboys and Kansas City Chiefs in their last two games. They are always in a strong position to draft a quarterback like Bryce Young, CJ Stroud or even Will Levis.

The Chicago Bears notably hold the second pick, despite the excellent play of second-year quarterback Justin Fields. The Bears could choose to sit still and select a defensive player like linebacker Will Anderson Jr. from Alabama or defensive tackle Jalen Carter from Georgia. Or, they could trade with a team that needs a quarterback to pick an offensive tackle or wide receiver to help Fields.

An embarrassing Christmas Day performance by the Denver Broncos resulted in head coach Nathaniel Hackett being fired after just 15 games. The team being in a downward spiral from which it seems difficult to get out, especially with Russell Wilson who seems to be regressing due to a monstrous contract which is difficult to get rid of, the Seattle Seahawks are beneficiaries. They could select one of the best defenders available, or even take a quarterback if they so choose. So far, the Seahawks have won the Wilson trade easily.

Top 10 teams like the Indianapolis Colts, Carolina Panthers, Detroit Lions and Las Vegas Raiders could choose a quarterback. You can’t rule out the Atlanta Falcons, who were officially eliminated from playoff contention despite being in a weak NFC South zone.

In more than a month, the NFL Draft order will be official. But given the number of teams with six or seven two-game regular season wins, we can expect a lot of changes in the order.
