Now that Wild Card weekend is over and the Eagles have been eliminated, the official 2014 NFL draft order has become a little clearer. The top 24 picks are now set in stone. The Philadelphia Eagles are slated to pick at 22 in the first round.

Full order:

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 or 17. Baltimore Ravens - 8-8 (.484)*
16 or 17. Dallas Cowboys - 8-8 (.484)*
18. New York Jets - 8-8 (.488)
19. Miami Dolphins - 8-8 (.523)
20. Arizona Cardinals - 10-5 (.529)
21. Green Bay Packers - 8-7-1 (.553)
22. Philadelphia Eagles - 10-6 (.453)
23. Kansas City Chiefs - 11-5 (.445)
24. Cincinnati Bengals - 11-5 (.480)

*To be determined by coin toss.

The Eagles ended up with the second best available pick for teams making the playoffs. (How's that for a positive spin?) If the Packers had managed to beat the 49ers, the Eagles would have selected 21. Alas, that was not the case. Teams picking 25-32 are still in the playoffs and will have their draft order based upon further post-season elimination.

There are many needs on this Eagles roster, and the draft will be a great way to infuse more young talent here. Philadelphia owns their draft picks in every round except the sixth. The Eagles also own the Patriots' fifth round selection due to the Isaac Sopoaga trade midway through the 2013 season.

The Draft will be held May 8-10, 2014 at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. In the meantime, get those mock drafts ready.
