NFL Draft Order 2016: Eagles fall five spots after beating the Patriots

Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles are alive in the 2016 NFL playoff picture. They're currently tied for first place in the NFC East. At the same time, they aren't that far off from having a top 10 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft order.

If the season were to end today, the Eagles would pick No. 14 overall. That's five spots below where they were scheduled to pick as of last week at No. 9. Here's a look at the entire order at this point:

1. Cleveland Browns: 2-10 (.531 strength of schedule)
2. Tennessee Titans: 3-9 (.495 SOS)
3. San Diego Chargers: 3-9 (.526 SOS)
4. Jacksonville Jaguars: 4-8 (.484 SOS)
5. Baltimore Ravens: 4-8 (.505 SOS)
6. New Orleans Saints: 4-8 (.521 SOS)
7. San Francisco 49ers: 4-8 (.526 SOS - 3-7 in conference, 0-5 in division)
8. Dallas Cowboys: 4-8 (.526 SOS - 3-7 in conference, 3-2 in division)
9. Detroit Lions: 4-8 (.526 SOS - 3-5 in conference, 2-3 in division)
10. St. Louis Rams: 4-8 (.526 SOS - 3-5 in conference, 3-1 in division)
11. Miami Dolphins: 5-7 (.474 SOS)
12. New York Giants: 5-7 (.500 SOS)
13. Oakland Raiders: 5-7 (.510 SOS)
14. Philadelphia Eagles: 5-7 (.510 SOS)
15. Chicago Bears: 5-7 (.526 SOS)
16. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: 6-6 (.474 SOS)
17. Atlanta Falcons: 6-6 (.490 SOS)
18. Houston Texans: 6-6 (.516 SOS - 4-4 in conference)
19. Buffalo Bills: 6-6 (.516 SOS - 6-5 in conference)
20. Pittsburgh Steelers: 7-5 (.510 SOS)

Projected to make the playoffs:

21. Washington: 5-7 (.484 SOS)
22. Indianapolis Colts: 6-6 (.516 SOS)
23. New York Jets: 7-5 (.453 SOS)
24. Seattle Seahawks: 7-5 (.495 SOS)
25. Kansas City Chiefs: 7-5 (.500 SOS)
26. Minnesota Vikings: 8-4 (.495 SOS - 5-3 in conference)
27. Green Bay Packers: 8-4 (.495 SOS - 6-3 in conference)
28. Arizona Cardinals: 10-2 (.453 SOS)
29. Cincinnati Bengals: 10-2 (.458 SOS)
30. New England Patriots: 10-2 (.474 SOS) - PICK FORFEITED
31. Denver Broncos: 10-2 (.490 SOS)
32. Carolina Panthers: 12-0 (.443 SOS)

Last week, 55% of Eagles fans voted that they wanted to see the Birds lose out. I even wrote that losing out is what was best for the Eagles. But now that the Birds are tied for first place, it's hard to not expect them to try to actually win this thing. If the Eagles can't manage to win the NFC East, at least they will have a decent draft pick to fall back on. Let's try running that same poll again and see how the results turn out this time.
