NFL Draft 2016 Order: Eagles rank outside the top 15 picks

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Yes, the Philadelphia Eagles are alive in the 2016 NFL playoff picture, but that could soon change. If the Birds don't beat the Washington Redskins on Saturday, they will be officially eliminated from the postseason race. With that in mind, it's not too early to look ahead to see where the Eagles are currently projected to pick in the 2016 NFL Draft order.

If the season were to end today, the Eagles would pick No. 16 overall. After failing to make the playoffs at 10-6 last season, the Eagles picked at No. 20. Here's a look at the complete order via SB Nation's Dan Kadar:

1. Tennessee Titans: 3-11 (.487 strength of schedule)
2. Cleveland Browns: 3-11 (.536 SOS)
3. San Diego Chargers: 4-10 (.518 SOS - 3-7 in conference, 0-4 in division)
4. Baltimore Ravens: 4-10 (.518 SOS - 3-7 in conference, 2-2 in division)
5. Dallas Cowboys: 4-10 (.540 SOS)
6. San Francisco 49ers: 4-10 (.549 SOS)
7. Jacksonville Jaguars: 5-9 (.464 SOS)
8. Miami Dolphins: 5-9 (.473 SOS)
9. New Orleans Saints: 5-9 (.513 SOS)
10. Detroit Lions: 5-9 (.531 SOS)
11. Chicago Bears: 5-9 (.540 SOS)
12. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: 6-8 (.478 SOS)
13. New York Giants: 6-8 (.496 SOS)

16. Philadelphia Eagles: 6-8 (.513 SOS)
17. Buffalo Bills: 6-8 (.518 SOS)
18. St. Louis Rams: 6-8 (.531 SOS)
19. Atlanta Falcons: 7-7 (.478 SOS)
20. New York Jets: 9-5 (.442 SOS)

Projected to make the playoffs:

21. Washington: 7-7 (.477 SOS)
22. Houston Texans: 7-7 (.500 SOS)
23. Kansas City Chiefs: 9-5 (.487 SOS)
24. Seattle Seahawks: 9-5 (.504 SOS - 6-4 in conference, 2-2 in division)
