The NFL season is over, which means one thing: it's NFL draft time.

The order for picks 1-20 is decided by regular-season standings. The order for the final 12 picks will be decided by the playoffs--picks 21-24 go to wild-card round losers, picks 25-28 to divisional round losers, picks 29 and 30 to conference championship losers, the 31st pick to the Super Bowl loser and the 32nd pick to the Super Bowl champion.

Regular-season strength of schedule is the first tiebreaker (with the lower SOS getting the higher pick), followed by division record and conference record (if the tied teams are in the same division or conference). A coin flip at the Combine in February will determine the order of any teams that are stil tied after all tiebreakers. Head-to-head results do not affect draft order.
