Can We Draft as High as 3rd Overall?

If Tampa Bay beats Atlanta and KC beats Denver... and we lose to SD...

...can we have third pick??

I know we'd draft at least 4th because KC beat us... but what would be the tie-breaker between us and Tampa?

I mean... in regards to trading down and getting value.... 3rd may be a lot more valuable than 5th if Suh & Berry are the first 2 picks and the QBs are all there...

it doesnt matter that KC beat us, the tiebreaker is strength of schedule.

I thought head-to-head was the first criteria, then SOS??

Good question cause I keep hearing how we will pick 4th or 5th but no matter what the Browns picks before us. Is there any way we can get moved up higher?

Re: Can We Draft as High as 3rd Overall?

I just looked up SOS and ours is lower than both KC and Tampa...

so regardless, if that scenario plays out, we WOULD have the 3rd pick...

that could be HUGE in regards to Okung.

I don't think the Rams would take him 1st overall... and the Lions would most likely take Suh...

The rams are most definately selecting between Clausen and Okung.

The highest we can pick is 4th, that is if the Bucs, and Chiefs win. We would beat the Chiefs in SOS, but the Bucs with SOS tiebreaker v.s. us. We also hold the tiebreaker over the Browns, so if the season ended today we would have the #5 pick.

As far as trade down value, when was the last time you saw a top 5 pick traded? The amount a team has to give up is unreal.

I still really want Suh, but doubt it'll happen. Okung would be a great consolation.

According to what I've found... our SOS is LOWER than both KC AND TAMPA....

so we'd have the 3rd overall pick.

Redskins Opp Win% - 44%
Chiefs Opp Win% - 51%
Tampa Opp Win% - 54%

Like I said... this COULD be pretty significant regarding trading down or getting Okung....

Re: Can We Draft as High as 3rd Overall?

I'm telling guys. One of either two scenarios will play out. Either we will pick Bradford first and 2 or 3 offensive line prospects after him or we draft Okung and trade up from our second round pick to select McCoy, after which we will probably draft a few more offensive lineman. My money is on the Bradford scenario but either one is fine for me, even though I don't like 2nd round QB's.

i think im confusing myself, does it go off this years strength of schedule? also the team with the easier schedule drafts ahead of the team with the harder schedule? that makes no sense to me.
