2018 NFL Draft order: Browns pick first; where will Falcons?


The Cleveland Browns own the No. 1 pick of the 2018 NFL Draft, which will be held April 26-28 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

The tentative order of the first round was announced by the NFL Monday and is subject to change based on the playoffs results. 

One curiousity about this year's draft order is that since Oakland and San Francisco have the same strength-of-schedule, and neither the divisional nor the conference tie-breaker applies, the tie for the ninth and 10th positions will be determined by a coin flip. 

The Falcons, as of right now, will be picking in the 25th spot. 

 

1. Cleveland Browns 
2. New York Giants 
3. Indianapolis Colts 
4. Houston Texans (traded to Cleveland) 
5. Denver Broncos 
6. New York Jets 
7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
