2011 NFL Draft Order: Complete First Round Schedule

With the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft set to get started on Thursday evening, it's time for one last look at the NFL Draft order. Consider this the calm before the storm, and the order is subject to change at any moment. Every year, we see a flurry of trades as teams try to move up, down and all around the draft in an effort to secure the best players possible.

As a reminder, the 2011 NFL Draft is under a unique set of rules. With no collective bargaining agreement in place, trades may only involve draft picks. Where last year the Seahawks traded for Leon Washington and others, this year teams will only be swapping positions in this draft and future drafts.

Here is the order, determined by regular season record. Teams that made the playoffs move to the back of the line, then were ordered by playoff exit and regular season records.

2 (2) Denver Broncos
3 (3) Buffalo Bills
