We now know the top 24 picks in the 2018 NFL Draft.

NFL: NFC Wild Card-Atlanta Falcons at Los Angeles Rams Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

Four teams are now out of the hunt for the Super Bowl after the NFL playoffs wild card weekend. The Buffalo Bills, Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Rams and Carolina Panthers are out after losing to the Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans, Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints, respectively.

Which means the next four spots in the 2018 NFL Draft are now set. Previously, the furthest we knew was that the Detroit Lions would be picking No. 20 overall.

Now we know the Bills (9-7) will pick at No. 21 and then again at No. 22, as they possess the Chiefs’ (10-6) first-round pick. At No. 23, the Rams (11-5) will pick while the Panthers (11-5) will select at No. 24.

It will be interesting to see where the Rams go in the first round. Do they go for a receiver or another position to benefit Jared Goff as he takes another step in his development? They don’t have too many significant holes.

Below is the updated draft order that we know.
