The Arizona Cardinals own the No. 1 pick of the 2019 NFL Draft, which will be held April 25-27 in Nashville, Tennessee.
The final order of the first round depends on the results of the playoffs. The draft order is determined by the following procedures:
If, after all these procedures are applied, a tie still exists in any grouping except A above, the tie will be broken by the aggregate won-lost-tied percentage of the tied clubs’ regular season opponents and the club which faced the schedule of teams with the lowest aggregate won-lost-tied percentage will get the preferential pick.
If ties still exist, the divisional or conference tie-breaking method, if applicable, will be applied. If neither are applicable, ties will be broken by a coin flip.
The tie between Buffalo and Denver for the 9th and 10th position was broken by conference tie-breakers. Since both clubs had the same conference record (4-8), their win-loss-tie percentage in common games is applied. Since both clubs had the same record in common games (1-4), their win-loss-tied percentage in strength of victory is applied. Since Buffalo (.411) had a lower win-loss-tie percentage in strength of victory than Denver (.464), they are given priority.
Clubs involved in two-club ties will alternate positions from round-to-round. In ties that involve three or more clubs, the club at the top of a tied segment in a given round will move to the bottom of the segment for the next round, while all other clubs in the segment move up one position. This rotation continues throughout the Draft.
