The Indianapolis Colts‘ 22-13 victory over the Houston Texans locked up the No. 3 pick in the draft. A Colts‘ loss combined with a New York Giants‘ victory (they are ahead 18-10 over Washington) would have given the Colts the No. 2 pick. 

DRAFT ORDER PRIOR TO SUNDAY

NOTE: It‘s possible — though unlikely — for the tiebreaker to change. If all 13 opponents for a team were to win or lose, it can swing by more than 30 points. 

1.Cleveland 0-15, .517

2.Giants 2-13, .533

3.Indianapolis 3-12, .483

4.Houston 4-11, .508

5.Tampa Bay 4-11, .541

6.San Francisco  5-10, .521

7.Chicago 5-10, .558

8.Denver 5-10, .483

9.N.Y. Jets 5-10, .510

Here is a rough estimate of how valuable each pick has been based on the players selected over the past 20 years by pro-football-reference‘s Weighted Career Approximate Value (an effort to evaluate every player with a single number):

No. 1: 1,239 (8 booms, 3 busts)
No. 2: 917 (6 booms, 8 busts)
No. 3: 859 (1 boom, 9 busts)
