A little tidbit for those of you who actually do tune in and read the official CBS fan blogs (of which this is one):
Thanks to the wild results of the NFC playoffs, the Atlanta Falcons have bumped up a spot in April's draft. The draft order is based mainly on the team's regular season record, with postseason advancement and opponents' winning percentage as tiebreakers. But the two teams in the Super Bowl automatically draft #31 and #32.
Both the Eagles and Cardinals would have drafted ahead of Atlanta, which would have been in the #25 spot. But since Arizona and Philadelphia will face each other for the NFC title, one of them will move to the #31/32 spots, which will bump Atlanta up to #24.
Yes, it's a minor thing. But you probably heard it here first...
(And thanks again for reading the blog.)
1/21 UPDATE - picks #21-30 will be (in order): Philadelphia, Minnesota, New England, Atlanta, Miami, Baltimore, Indianapolis, Philadelphia (from Carolina), NY Giants, Tennessee.
