Here is a look at where your favorite team could be picking in the upcoming 2023 NFL Draft.

There are still two full weeks’ worth of games to be played, but some teams have already moved onto the 2023 NFL Draft.

Although 14 teams will be taking part in the NFL playoffs, 18 will be watching them at home from the couch like the rest of us. Fortunately, the NFL does as great of a job as anyone as breathing in hope to many lifeless franchises. All it takes is a few good hires and several killer offseason roster calibrations to have a team back in the mix of things! This spring will be here before you know it…

Here is the updated 2023 NFL Draft order through the Week 16 slate of games.

  2. Chicago Bears (3-12)
  3. Seattle Seahawks from Denver Broncos (4-11)
  4. Arizona Cardinals (4-11)
  5. Indianapolis Colts (4-10-1)
  6. Atlanta Falcons (5-10)
  7. Detroit Lions from Los Angeles Rams (5-10)
  8. Carolina Panthers (6-9)
  9. Las Vegas Raiders (6-9)
  10. Philadelphia Eagles from New Orleans Saints (6-9)
  11. Houston Texans from 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. Miami Dolphins (8-7) (forfeited)
  23. New York Giants (8-6-1)
  24. Los Angeles Chargers (9-6)
  25. Baltimore Ravens (10-5)
  26. Denver Broncos from San Francisco 49ers (11-4)
  27. Dallas Cowboys (11-4)
  28. Cincinnati Bengals (11-4)
  29. Kansas City Chiefs (12-3)
  30. Minnesota Vikings (12-3)
  31. Buffalo Bills (12-3)
  32. Philadelphia Eagles (13-2)

Although the Houston Texans somehow beat the Tennessee Titans on the road in Week 16, they are still in possession of the No. 1 pick in the 2023 NFL Draft … for now. They improved to 2-12-1 on the season with the Chicago Bears right on their tails at 3-12. The Atlanta Falcons also lost their 10th game of the season to officially be eliminated from playoff contention on Saturday…

With the Cleveland Browns being eliminated from playoff contention this week, Houston now is in possession of two top-10 picks, as they would be picking 10th in place of the Browns who now employ Deshaun Watson. The Detroit Lions and the Seattle Seahawks have an outside shot at having a pair of top-10 picks as well, depending on how horrifically they play down the stretch.

So if your team is hot garbage like mine, potentially, maybe, just maybe, help is only a draft away!
