Thread: Draft Pick Tiebreakers?

  1. #1

    Draft Pick Tiebreakers?

    When teams have the same record, how is order of draft picks determined? Is the same formula used as in playoff tiebreakers? If not, what is the formula?

    Thanks!

    Strength of Schedule, or the team with the worst SOS gets the better pick.

    So in other words, we will lose pretty much every tiebreaker this year in all probability.

    Yeah, I should clarify. The team with the lower SOS%, or the easiest schedule, would get the better pick.

    I believe the logic is that the team who put up the same record, but did so with an easier schedule is more deserving of the pick.

    The Jets SOS% figures to be one of the hardest in the league this year.

    Teams that are tied in SOS also rotate in order through the rounds. So if the teams are:

    a (worst SOS)
    b
    c
    d (strongest SOS)

    They'd pick a-b-c-d in round 1, b-c-d-a in round two, c-d-a-b in round 3 and so on

    True. But it's too soon to be thinking about draft position in any round other then the First Round. lol

    As of right now we're tied for 10th.

    1a.Eagles - 568
    1b.Redskins - 568
    3. Bears - 563
    4. Lions - 551
    5. Panthers - 540
    6. Dolphins - 534
    7a. Chargers - 528
    7b. Vikings - 528
    7c. Broncos - 528
    10a. Jets - 523
    10b. Rams - 523

    *Note: These are not official numbers. A few years ago I made an excel spreadsheet that determines draft order. The SOS column is pretty simple: SOS = (opponents winning%/16)

    So while the numbers may not be exact, they are in the correct order.
