2023 NFL draft first-round order: Houston Texans cruising toward top pick




 

Here is a look at the first-round order for the 2023 NFL draft after the events of Week 13.

The Houston Texans are in position to own the No. 1 pick in April's draft. The Texans have had the No. 1 overall selection three times prior: 2002 (David Carr), 2006 (Mario Williams) and 2014 (Jadeveon Clowney).

The draft order is determined by record, and using strength of schedule as a tiebreaker (record and strength of schedule are official tiebreakers to determine the draft order).

The final 14 first-round spots will be determined by playoff results. For now, those teams will be ordered based on playoff seed, if the season ended today.

The 2023 NFL draft is scheduled to be held in Kansas City from April 27-29.
