Jaguars, Falcons, Texans Battling For First Overall Pick


The fact that two of the teams on this list are a reversal of injuries away from being in the Super Bowl hunt is simply remarkable.

Since the beginning of the season,  the Jacksonville Jaguars have always been the favorites to land the first overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

After defeating the Texans on Sunday, the Jaguars now have company in the battle for the first overall pick.  The Jaguars, Houston Texans and Atlanta Falcons are 2-9 right now.

The Jaguars and Texans will play each other on Thursday, December 5, and the loser of that game should have the inside track for the first overall pick.

The interesting scenario that could happen would be the Falcons having the worst record in football.  With Matt Ryan locked into a mega-deal, that could allow the Falcons to get back into the playoff hunt immediately by drafting South Carolina all world defensive end Jadeveon Clowney.

Tampa Bay, Minnesota and the Rams will be players in the top pick discussion as well.  The Rams hold the Redskins pick because of the RG3 trade, and would love the No. 1 overall pick as well.
