2010 NFL Draft First Round Order

Last night I posted the updated list of the 49ers 2010 opponents as a reference for the rest of the offseason.  I thought I'd do the same thing for the NFL draft order, at least as much as it covers the 49ers.  I'm closing the comments here because we have plenty of places for draft discussion.  If you want to chat about the draft or any other offseason discussion, your two best threads at this point are our official mock draft thread (for posting your own mocks) and our official thread for offseason discussion (updated with a new thread every 2 or 3 days).  And if you do want to join the discussion, feel free to sign up for a free (no spam) account.

The draft order is after the jump.  The official order is determined as follows:

1. The winner of the Super Bowl will select last and the other Super Bowl participant next-to-last, regardless of their regular-season record.

2. The Championship Game participants not advancing to the Super Bowl will select 29th and 30th, according to the reverse order of their regular-season record.

3. The Divisional Playoff participants not advancing to the Championship Games will select 25th through 28th, according to the reverse order of their regular-season record.

4. The Wild Card participants not advancing to the Divisional Playoffs will select 21st through 24th, according to the reverse order of their regular-season record.

5. Non-playoff clubs will select first through 20th, according to the reverse order of their regular-season record.

If ties exist in any grouping except (A) above, they will be broken by strength of schedule (i.e., figuring the aggregate won-lost-tied percentage of each involved club's regular season opponents and awarding preferential selection order to the club which faced the schedule of teams with the lowest aggregate won-lost-tied percentage).

If ties still exist after applying the strength of schedule tiebreaker, the divisional or conference tiebreakers are applied, if applicable.  If the divisional or conference tiebreakers are not applicable, ties will be broken by a coin flip.

2. Detroit (2-14)
