    I can't find one on the console, and just didn't know if the Standings in reverse order was in fact the draft order?

    Anyone know for sure?

    Look in trade players, then each individual team picks

    Tentatively, this is what it looks like, I think:

    1. Chiefs
    2. Jaguars
    3. Ravens
    4. Rams
    5. Lions
    6. Chargers
    7. Bills
    8. Eagles
    9. Rams (via Redskins)
    10. Bears
    11. Cowboys
    12. Raiders
    13. Panthers
    14. Cardinals
    15. Colts
    16. Falcons
    17. Seahawks
    18. Jaguars (via Dolphins)
    19. Bengals
    20. Patriots
    21. Browns
    22. Texans
    23. Buccaneers
    24. Giants
    25. Vikings
    26. Broncos
    27. Jets
    28. 49ers
    29. Titans
    30. Saints
    31. Packers
    32. Steelers

    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    To determine drafter order it goes as follows:

    1. Of all non-playoff teams, the team with the lowest winning percentage at the end of the previous season drafts first in the NFL Draft. All other teams that fail to make the playoffs are then placed in order from lowest winning percentage to the highest. (For teams with identical records, see tiebreakers below.) So basically reverse order of win-loss record.
    ---- 1a. Tiebreaker(s): Strength of schedule for the previous season is the first tie-breaker for teams with the same winning percentage. The team with the lowest strength of schedule percentage wins the tiebreaker and picks ahead of all other teams with the same record. Divisional and conference records are the next step in the tie-breaking procedure.

    2. Next come the teams who were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs, placed in order from lowest winning percentage to the highest (based on regular-season record), followed by those eliminated in the second round, again placed in order from lowest winning percentage to highest.

    3. After the above teams are placed, the losers of the conference championship games take the next two spots with the team with the lowest winning percentage during the regular season placed ahead of the other.

    4. The Super Bowl loser drafts next to last.

    5. The Super Bowl winner drafts last.

    I got the SOS from the RPI rankings so this should be rather accurate. The only picks I'm not sure about are 9 & 10, as the RPI rankings dont list division and conference records.
