2016 NFL Draft Order: Updated First-Round Picks After Super Bowl 50

2,985

Stick a fork in it. The 2015 NFL season is done.

The Denver Broncos’ Super Bowl 50 win over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday means it’s totally acceptable to look ahead to the 2016 season. Of course, fans of the 30 teams not playing in this season’s big game probably already turned the page, but those folks now can do so in peace.

The offseason always is eventful. There will be plenty of free-agent signings and the NFL draft will be here before you know it. This year’s draft will take place from April 28 to April 30, and the Tennessee Titans own the first overall pick by virtue of finishing with the league’s worst record.

Let’s run down the complete draft order now that the Broncos have defeated the Panthers in the Super Bowl, leaving Denver with the 31st and final selection of the first round. (The New England Patriots were stripped of their first-round pick because of the NFL’s Deflategate punishment.)
