NFL draft first-round order: Bears in good spot after 2023 trade

During Week 10, the Chicago Bears’ win over the Carolina Panthers and the Arizona Cardinals prevailing in Kyler Murray’s return had a profound impact on the top of the first-round order for the 2024 NFL draft.

The Bears own the Panthers’ first-round pick as a result of a 2023 pre-draft trade that gave Carolina the No. 1 pick, which it used to select Alabama quarterback Bryce Young. That trade now has the Bears — by way of the Panthers’ league-worst 1-8 record — at the top of the 2024 NFL draft after the results of ‘Thursday Night Football.’

The draft order is determined by record, and uses 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 2024 NFL draft is scheduled to be held in Detroit from April 25-27.
