First Overall Pick Watch – Week 3

A new weekly feature where college and pro football meet, the NFL draft. 10 of last 11 teams who got the first overall pick have finished with 2 or fewer wins. There is no reason to think this year will be any different.

Say Good-Bye

These teams got their third win this past week:

  • Chicago Bears
  • Denver Broncos
  • Kansas City Chiefs
  • Miami Dolphins
  • New England Patriots
  • New Orleans Saints
  • Seattle Seahawks

Somethings Gotta Give

These games feature two teams with exactly two wins right now:

  • New York Jets at Tennessee Titans – Tennessee is at home, and favored by 4, so they seem more likely to move into the top category.

Still Alive

25 Teams are still alive, with one of the two teams from the previous section guaranteeing this number drops by at least one this week.

The Front Runner(s)

The state of Florida. The Jacksonville Jaguars and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are both 0-3. Tampa just benched their QB for a guy most scouts think can’t survive as an NFL QB.
