When several teams tie with the same record, how do they determine the draft order of those teams? Last year there were 7 teams, I believe, with 8-8 records. Dallas was one of those teams and the draft positions were 13th through 19th, I believe. Our position was 14th, how was that determined? Side note: Next year, if we draft no lower than 12th( 7-9 records drafted 11th & 12th in 2012), we could theoretically trade back 3 times and still draft in 31st or 32nd place. We would gain a 2nd and 2 3rd round picks during these trades. Of course we would have to have teams that were willing to participate in order to accomplish these trades. I think by trading this far back that Jerry would be more apt to go Oline in first round and there will probably be a top Olineman available. Using the Draft Pick Value Chart here is how these 3 trades can be accomplished. Position Numeric Value 12th 1200 Trade For: 16th 1000 & 3rd(190) = 1190 Trade 16th(1000) for 26th 700 & 2nd(320) = 1020 Trade 26th(700) for 32nd 590 & 3rd(116) = 706 So, if the above can be accomplished, these extra picks(3,3,2), if used correctly, could do more for the franchise than anything since the Herschel Walker trade. This is where a team needs an experienced and true professional as their GM. Your thoughts.
