The Rams may have lost on Sunday, but so did the Redskins, which only means that the Rams draft picks just got a little better. Even if the Rams do lose games the rest of the season, there really is no reason to be upset about it as their picks will only get better. Here’s what the draft order looks like after week 13.


1. Houston Texans 2-10

2. Jacksonville Jaguars 3-9

3. St. Louis Rams( via WAS) 3-9

4. Atlanta Falcons 3-9

5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers 3-9

6. Minnesota Vikings 3-8-1

7. Cleveland Browns 4-8

8. Oakland Raiders 4-8

9. Buffalo Bills 4-8

10. Pittsburgh Steelers 5-7

11. Tennessee Titans 5-7

12. New York Jets 5-7

13. San Diego Chargers 5-7

14. New York Giants 5-7

15. St. Louis Rams 5-7

16. Green Bay Packers 5-6-1

17. Chicago Bears 6-6

18. Baltimore Ravens 6-6

19.  Miami Dolphins 6-6

20. Detroit Lions 7-5

21. Philadelphia Eagles 7-5

22. Dallas Cowboys 7-5

23. Arizona Cardinals 7-5

24. Cincinnati Bengals 8-4

25. Cleveland Browns(via IND) 8-4

26. San Francisco 49ers 8-4

27. Kansas City Chiefs 9-3

28. New England Patriots 9-3

29. Carolina Panthers 9-3

30. New Orleans Saints 9-3

31. Denver Broncos 10-2

32. Seattle Seahawks 11-1


That so far is the current draft order although this is all but set in stone as teams will move around a spot here and there until the end of the season.

As of right now the Rams hold the third and 15th picks in next years draft and it is my guess that they will try to trade out of that spot, but if they can’t, don’t be surprised if they go with the OT Jake Matthews or OLB Anthony Barr. If the Rams can trade back they would probably end up taking DT Louis Nix III, but could possibly take WR Marquise Lee or WR Sammy Watkins.

At 15 the Rams would look at taking S Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix, but if he wasn’t available expect them to trade down and go after one of the top CBs.

The Rams are sitting pretty good right now going into April’s drafts, the Rams picks may change slightly, like within a couple picks, but nothing too drastic. The future looks very bright for this team, it won’t be long before they are contenders.

    blaine hello as i love my rams and any info i can get i have one question maybe you can help me with …what is the formula for the ties i noticed you have us picking 15 and last among the 5-7 teams is it strength of schedule conference record division recordor some crazy combo of things??

    • Blaine Grisak

      If two or more teams have the same record the team with the easiest strength of schedule picks first, and then the team with the next easiest and so on, and because the Rams just happened to have one of the toughest schedules in the NFL they pick last in the teams with a 5-7 record. I do believe though if a team has the same record and strength of schedule, they do a coin flip before the draft.

      • Gary Stewart

        thanks for the info seems like a penaly to me, you play the harder schedule and the reward is a lower draft pick after last week i have updated my projections and i have the wash pick at #6 and ours at #11 but thats based on looking at the remaining games of all the teams at 6-6 or worse. its not too scientific but i have us at 6-10 and wash winning 2 more to get to 5-11.

        • Blaine Grisak

          I know it doesn’t make much sense to me either, they have to do it somehow I guess. I have us going 7-9 and then I can see Washington winning one maybe two more games, either way our picks look pretty good!

          • Gary Stewart

            i i got us winning in the throwbacks was thinking we may go 7-9 but im afraid ariz is gonna play desperate new orleans is now in a dogfight with carolina and i think we always play well against seattle but winng there i dont know.

          • Blaine Grisak

            I have us beating TB and ARI or SEA. I think we will more than likely lose this week, but winning could happen, and then by week 17 Seattle won’t have anything to play for so they may sit their starters, that’s my guess anyway.

  • Gary Stewart

    hi blaine, i look forward to the chat that will almost surely occur over the mettenburger acl injury and the mariotta decision to return to school and its impact on the draft overall.
