As we prepare for the final four games of the regular season, fans of many teams are already looking ahead to the offseason and which players their favorite team might select in the 2014 NFL Draft. The final draft order will not be set in stone until after the final seconds have ticked off the clock at the Super Bowl, but we have a good idea currently which teams might be selecting in the top ten

The current draft order for the top ten positions if the 2014 NFL Draft was today-

1. Houston Texans

2. Washington Redskins

3. Jacksonville Jaguars

4. Atlanta Falcons

5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

6. Minnesota Vikings

7. Oakland Raiders

8. Cleveland Browns

9. Buffalo Bills

10. Pittsburgh Steelers

The second and third spot would be determined by a coin flip between the Redskins and Jaguars. St. Louis owns the Redskins first round pick this year as a result of a trade two seasons ago in order to allow the Redskins to select QB Robert Griffin III.

This year is considered to be a deep draft at the quarterback position and just in the nick of time for teams drafting high in need of a quarterback. Houston, Jacksonville, Minnesota, and Cleveland are virtual locks to be in the market for a top signal caller. St. Louis will be in a good position to select a quarterback if they have decided to give up on Sam Bradford. Atlanta and Pittsburgh won’t be in the market for a quarterback. Tampa Bay is a wildcard due to the fact that rookie Mike Glennon is having a solid season, but has it been enough to make him the starter next season?

Oakland is another team that is a question mark as far as draft strategy. Oakland will have $75 million in cap space next season and they do have questions at the quarterback position. The Raiders will need to seriously evaluate Matt McGloin and Terrelle Pryor. If the Raiders feel that all either McGloin or Pryor need to flourish is more offensive weapons, they might add those pieces through free agency and then address other needs with their first round draft pick.
