Conference championships settle two more teams in 2018 draft order

New, comment

The 49ers will have nine picks in April.

The NFC and AFC Championship Games are a wrap, and we can add two more teams to the 2018 NFL Draft order. The Jacksonville Jaguars will slot in at No. 29, while the Minnesota Vikings will slot in at No. 30. The New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles will meet in Super Bowl 52, with the winner landing pick No. 32, and the loser landing pick No. 31.

This marks the first time since 2007 that the Jaguars have not been picking in the top ten. That year they had the No. 21 overall pick. Meanwhile, the 49ers sit at No. 9 or 10, depending on how their coin flip goes at next month’s NFL Combine. I believe that will happen near the end of the festivities.

The draft order has only two tiebreakers. The first is strength of schedule, and the second is a coin flip. Last year was the first time in three years that a coin flip was used. Just a reminder that there is science to a coin flip!

Here are the 49ers full list of picks for the time being (comp picks will change the overall number for day three picks).

1st: No. 9 — own
2nd: No. 27 (59) — New Orleans Saints - 2017 draft day trade
3rd: No. 6 (70) Chicago Bears - 2017 draft day trade
3rd: No. 9 (74) — own
4th: No. 28 (124) Pittsburgh Steelers - Vance McDonald trade
5th: No. 6 (134) New York Jets - Rashard Robinson trade
6th: No. 10 (170) own
7th: No. 9 (201) own
7th: No. 22 (214) Kansas City Chiefs - Kenneth Acker trade
