2014 NFL Draft order: Dolphins to pick 19th in May

Jerry Lai-US PRESSWIRE

With the end of the 2013 NFL regular season, the first 20 picks of the annual selection meeting has been set. For the Miami Dolphins, they will be picking 19th in the Draft.

The NFL's regular season drew to a close last night, with 20 teams completing their 2013 campaign and 12 teams moving on to the postseason tournament. Along with finalizing who will be in the NFL Playoffs, the completion of the regular season also sets the order for May's NFL Draft.

The first 20 picks are set by reverse order of the final standings, with the team with the worst record in the league receiving the first overall pick, on until we reach the teams that just missed the playoffs. Ties are broken usingstrength of schedule first, followed by division record if the teams are in the same division, and finally conference record if the teams are from the same conference. If that does not separate the clubs, a coin toss will be used to finalize the draft order.

The 21st to 32nd picks will be determined by playoff elimination with the Super Bowl champions pickings 32nd.

The 2014 NFL Draft order for picks 1-20 are:

1. Houston Texans - 2-14 (.559)
2. St. Louis Rams (via Washington Redskins) - 3-13 (.516)
3. Jacksonville Jaguars - 4-12 (.504)
4. Cleveland Browns - 4-12 (.516)
5. Oakland Raiders - 4-12 (.523)
6. Atlanta Falcons - 4-12 (.553)
7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - 4-12 (.574)
8. Minnesota Vikings - 5-10-1 (.512)
9. Buffalo Bills - 6-10 (.520)
10. Detroit Lions - 7-9 (.457)
11. Tennessee Titans - 7-9 (.504)
12. New York Giants - 7-9 (.520)
13. St. Louis Rams - 7-9 (.551)
14. Chicago Bears - 8-8 (.465)
15. Pittsburgh Steelers - 8-8 (.469)
16/17. Baltimore Ravens / Dallas Cowboys - 8-8 (.484) *
18. New York Jets - 8-8 (.488)
19. Miami Dolphins - 8-8 (.523)
20. Arizona Cardinals - 10-5 (.529)

*Coin toss will determine if the Ravens or Cowboys pick 16th.

For the Dolphins, the 19th pick will keep them out of the run on quarterbacks, which is expected this year. Seven of the top ten teams in the Draft could all be looking to upgrade their signal caller. For the Dolphins, the obvious priority heading into the offseason will be the offensive line.

The Draft will be held May 8-10, 2014 at Radio City Music Hall, New York City.
