Raiders continue to move up draft order

Jed Jacobsohn

With the loss to the Chiefs, the Raiders once again jumped up in the current draft order. With two games remaining, the Raiders sit in the number four spot in the draft order based on their record and strength of schedule. That's a jump of two spots from last week.

The number one pick is still not out of reach for the Raiders if they were to lose out, the Texans won out, and the Redskins and Jaguars won at least one more game.

In turn, the Raiders could draft as low as the 15 overall pick. That's a jump of four spots from last week (19). There is also no crazy playoff scenario that kept the 32 overall pick as a technical possibility.

Here is the top 15 in the draft order as it currently stands following the Ravens' win over the Lions on Monday Night Football:

1. Houston Texans - 2-12 (.552)

2. St. Louis Rams (via Washington Redskins) - 3-11 (.516)

3. Jacksonville Jaguars - 4-10 (.496)

4. Oakland Raiders - 4-10 (.504)

5. Cleveland Browns - 4-10 (.527)

6. Atlanta Falcons - 4-10 (.558)

7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - 4-10 (.578)

8. Minnesota Vikings - 4-9-1 (.530)

9. Tennessee Titans - 5-9 (.500)

10. Buffalo Bills - 5-9 (.525)

11. New York Giants - 5-9 (.536)

12. Pittsburgh Steelers - 6-8 (.479)

13. New York Jets - 6-8 (.488)

14. St. Louis Rams - 6-8 (.558)

15. Dallas Cowboys 7-7 (.489)

The Raiders face the Chargers this week and the Broncos in the season finale. Two games they are expected to lose which would likely keep them in the top five come season's end.
