NFL: Miami Dolphins at Buffalo Bills Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins are struggling to find consistency and play a full 60-minute football game 12 weeks into the 2017 NFL season. They have limped their way to a 4-7 record, and currently have lost five straight games. It has not been pretty, and there are more questions than answers around the Dolphins this year.

While the team is somehow still technically in the AFC playoff hunt - mostly because no one seems to want to take control of the Wildcard positions - they are also currently holding on to a top ten draft pick for the 2018 annual selection meeting.

SB Nation calculates the draft order weekly, using current results from the season, as well as projecting the Strength of Schedule for all 32 teams based on their full 16-game schedule.

The current draft order is:

1. Cleveland Browns (0-11)

2. San Francisco 49ers (1-10)

3. New York Giants (2-9)

4. Denver Broncos (3-8, .483 SOS)

5. Indianapolis Colts (3-8, .489 SOS)
