NFL owners OK change to draft order in 2010
John Clayton of ESPN reports the NFL owners concluded their annual meeting Wednesday by voting to alter the draft order of pick Nos. 21 through 30 based on the teams' performance in the playoffs.

Under the new draft order, which will take effect in 2010, the order of teams not in the playoffs is still based on record -- i.e., the team with the worst record will receive the No. 1 draft pick.

For the rest, there will be a reseeding based on how far the teams go in the playoffs. For example, the losers of the wild-card games will be seeded 21st through 24th based on their records.

The losers in the divisional rounds will be seeded 25th through 28th. Teams eliminated in the conference championship games will be seeded 29th and 30th.

The Super Bowl loser will be seeded 31st. The Super Bowl winner will receive the final pick in the draft.

Kind of, but it kind of shows that the team with the Harder Schedule won't always have the better record in the playoffs.

Well unless that Team is the Steelers, cause when the Steelers have the hardest schedule...they win the mother effing Super Bowl BABY!!!!

I never really payed attention to the fact that it wasn't already like this until this year when I saw the line-up this year and got really confused when certain teams picked ahead of others.
