I mentioned the lottery a couple of weeks ago, but PFT does a great job explaining it.


Like the NBA and NHL, the NFL supplemental draft lottery is weighted so that worse teams get a better chance of having the highest picks. The first drawing will feature the 10 teams that won six or fewer games last season: Colts, Rams, Vikings, Browns, Buccaneers, Redskins, Jaguars, Dolphins, Panthers and Bills. The Colts will get their names put in the drawing 32 times, the Rams 31 times, and so on. Those 10 teams are guaranteed to have Top 10 picks, but the lottery will determine the exact order.

After that, a second drawing takes place with the 10 teams that won seven or more games last season but didnít make the playoffs: Chiefs, Seahawks, Cardinals, Cowboys, Eagles, Jets, Raiders, Chargers, Bears, Titans. The Chiefs will get their names in the drawing 22 times, the Seahawks 21 times, and so on. Those 10 teams get picks 11-20.

Finally, the third drawing is for the 12 playoff teams, with the Super Bowl champion Giants getting their names in the drawing just once. The 12 playoff teams get draft lottery picks 21-32.

So it is possible Miami could have the top pick in each round, therefore have priority for Gordon. Then again, they could also pick as low as 10th in each round.

Im glad this was posted. For some reason, the myth exists that we have the same draft order as the previous NFL draft, which is false, as proven here. We don't need to be #1, we simply need to be above Cleveland, Washington, and the Vikings. Not saying those three are definitely going after him, but I'm of the opinion that they are easily our biggest competition. Get position above them, bid a 3rd, and we likely have him. I feel this way for several reasons - the main being, I simply don't see any of those teams bidding off their 2nd rounder (in Washington's case, their top pick)

It took years to dispel the myth that the Supplemental Draft order was based on the real Draft order. It's always been this convoluted weighted lottery. Eventually Mike Florio took up the mantle of getting it out there and explained the right way (this isn't the first year he's explained it) and so it's starting to actually get out there more...for which I'm grateful.

When it comes to Josh Gordon the team to watch is, I'm hearing, the Dallas Cowboys. But they pick in the mid-tier and we pick in the high-tier, so if we both submit 3rd round picks we win. But will the Dolphins do that? Odds are against it, IMO.

It's now. Order is in.

1st round is over, and Miami is behind Cleveland. They are 4th, I believe, but Cleveland being ahead of Miami is troubling if you're wanting Gordon

Yea I am glad that is over and if we missed him it was because someone like Cleveland in the 2nd round in front of us grabbed him. I am a bit torn on the guy between our need to upgrade the WR position this year and our strikeouts in the supplemental drafts in the past. If he turns out to be a all pro I won't be so upset this way (not) that really makes it any better if he really does. Like everyone I am hoping that once we get in pads our WR postions starts sparkling a bit more. I like to root for the underdogs every year to make the team so we have a few of those at WR this year.

I can't say I have given it a tremendous amount of thought but will some explain why the lottery system in the supplemental draft is more fair than going by your original draft order of the prior draft?

Way,way,waaay over drafted. This guy is not a better prospect than the 2 rounders to come in 2013. He's a 4th rounder, at best. Yes, his athleticism is well documented. However, he recks of Brian Robiskie or a Brandon LaFell. He'll be a decent 3rd or 4th option, but I highly doubt he'll be more than that. Of course, NFL scouts know more than me so I could be wrong. Still, I doubt I am.
