Bucs and Texans win, shake up top picks

Three of the leagues worst teams won on Sunday. The Bucs, Texans and Cardinals all put up wins and hurt their draft position in the process. The Bucs now have the 4th pick, the Cardinals fell to 5th and the Texans to 6th. The big 'winner' of the week, the Browns, moved up into the 3rd spot from the 6th.

The Lions and Raiders locked up the first two picks, although who will pick number one is still too close to call.

The tie breaker for draft position is strength of schedule, with the worst schedule receiving the higher pick.

Actually, the Bucs have edged the Browns for the No. 3 pick based on strength of schedule, though I don't know how that will work out after Week 17.

If the season was over today, the top four picks would be:

1. Detroit
2. Oakland
3. Tampa Bay
4. Cleveland

Even still, the Browns are so good at winning the last meaningless game of the season that I wouldn't bet against them this week in Houston. Ken Dorsey will probably be the AFC player of the week, simply to ensure we can't draft Joe Thomas or Adrian Peterson. Then we'll draft Michigan's Alan Branch, and the Ohio State faithful will lose their minds for us not taking Quinn Pitcock, or worse, Troy Smith. Hellfire will rain on the streets of Cleveland, and Branch will tear an ACL in training camp. It'll be amazingly similar to this year. Being a Browns fan is awesome.

Strength of schedule is based off of all 16 weeks. Putting the Browns at .533 and Bucs at .542. This gives the Browns the #3 pick right now.
