Packers will at some point flip a coin with the Redskins who laid an egg today against the hapless Giants. The coin toss will determine who drafts 14th and who drafts 15th. The loser of the flip will draft ahead of the winner in round 2 and so on.

Arizona won so GB will have either the 13th or 14th pick.

The Packers have the 14th pick, their is no coin toss to be made here.

Ricky,

Correct, but tied with Washington record wise as well as SOS. It will be a coin toss and yes, I had it wrong about the slotting. It would be 13 or 14.

No coin toss.  We're the 14th pick.  Because Washington and Green Bay had identical SOS percentages, AND are in the same conference they then go to their records against common opponents within the conference.  Washington's record was worse than ours so they have the 13th pick and we get the 14th.

We still go up to the 13th pick in the second round and 12th pick in the third round.

That is correct, no coin toss. After SOS the next tiebreaker is common opponents.

 Their common NFC opponents are Seattle, Dallas, New Orleans and Minnesota. Washington beat Seattle, lost to Dallas twice, lost to New Orleans and lost to Minnesota for a 1-4 record. The Packers beat Seattle and Dallas and lost to New Orleans and Minnesota twice for a 2-3 record.

Thus, Washington gets the higher pick because it had the worse record.

So, Washington will pick 13th, Green Bay will pick 14th and Arizona (which beat Seattle to finish 8-8) will pick 15th.

NO COIN TOSS.

Well, in any event this will be the highest pick we've had since 2007 (with the 16th pick).  Another plus here is we will be picking higher in subsequent rounds this year than we have in a while too.

Maybe people want to start throwing out names. My dream pick is Bradley Chubb, DE (almost certainly gone). I also hope we go 4-3 but I've already stated that.

Speaking of BJ, I thought he was just going to take a year off and come back. I guess retirement was better than he thought it might be.

I doubt very much the 14th pick well get us Chubb.

Some analysts have him as the best player in the draft.

I completely agree with you Gregg, but that is why I said, "almost certainly gone!" I would think if he were sitting there when we picked, it wouldn't take long to get that card in.
