2023 NFL Draft order: Round 1, updated NFL Draft picks by team before Super Bowl LVII

2023 NFL Draft order
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The 2023 NFL Draft order will be based on the final standings for the 2022 NFL season, with the top 18 selections determined at the conclusion of Week 18. With each passing week of the NFL playoffs, we’ll gain further clarity for the order of selections in all seven rounds.

Of course, this is a slightly abnormal year. While there are a total of 259 picks in the NFL Draft in ordinary years, that is changing this time around. Because of the NFL’s findings from its investigation into the Miami Dolphins’ tampering by pursuing Tom Brady and Sean Payton when they were under contract with other teams. As a result, Miami lost its first-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft and its third-round selection in the 2024 NFL Draft.

There is also plenty of picks in the NFL Draft that still haven’t been determined. The NFL awards compensatory picks to NFL teams that lost a certain caliber of free agents and production in free agency the previous year, using a formula to calculate what compensation should be received. The compensatory picks between Rounds 3 and 7 will be announced this offseason

Here’s the latest 2023 NFL Draft order and everything you should know about the NFL Draft in 2023. The latest draft order for the draft is based on the NFL standings heading into the Super Bowl.

2023 NFL Draft order – Round 1

There are 31 picks in the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft. Heading into the 2023 offseason, the Seattle Seahawks, Detroit Lions, Philadelphia Eagles and Houston Texans all have two first-round picks.
