Super Bowl Means Round 1 Complete

Jeff Hanisch/US Presswire

The Packers pick 26th in the first round but get to move up to the 23rd slot of the second round.

With the Super Bowl in the books, the first-round draft order is complete.

The Green Bay Packers own the 26th pick of the first round. Because the Packers and Seattle Seahawks finished with 11-5 records and lost in the divisional round of the playoffs, they will alternate 25th and 26th picks in each round. In the second round, the Packers would pick 25th (and Seattle 26th) but instead will pick 23rd because Cleveland gave up its selection for selecting Josh Gordon in the second round of the Supplemental Draft and New Orleans lost its choice because of the Bountygate scandal.

The following is the full first round. The seven-round order — not including free-agent compensatory selections, which won't be released until late March — can be found at WalterFootball.com.

1. Kansas City (2-14)

2. Jacksonville (2-14)

3. Oakland (4-12)

4. Philadelphia (4-12)

5. Detroit (4-12)

6. Cleveland (5-11)

Note: St. Louis gets the 22nd selection for last year's deal that allowed Washington to move up to No. 2 to land Robert Griffin III.
