The Green Bay Packers would hold the 14th overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft if the season ended today.
Where they will end up remains to be seen.
If the Packers run the table and get the help needed to reach the playoffs, they would pick no earlier than 19th overall. But if they lose all of their remaining four games, they will almost certainly end up with a top-10 pick.
Packers hold 14th pick in 2023 draft entering Week 15
Here is the current draft order for the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft, based on the current standings entering Week 15:
- Houston Texans (1-11-1)
- Seattle Seahawks – from Denver Broncos (3-10)
- Chicago Bears (3-10)
- Philadelphia Eagles – from New Orleans Saints (4-9)
- Detroit Lions – from Los Angeles Rams (4-9)
- Arizona Cardinals (4-9)
- Indianapolis Colts (4-8-1)
- Las Vegas Raiders (5-8)
- Atlanta Falcons (5-8)
- Carolina Panthers (5-8)
- Jacksonville Jaguars (5-8)
- Houston Texans – from Cleveland Browns (5-8)
- Pittsburgh Steelers (5-8)
- Green Bay Packers (5-8)
- Detroit Lions (6-7)
- Seattle Seahawks (7-6)
- Los Angeles Chargers (7-6)
- New York Jets (7-6)
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-7)
- New England Patriots (7-6)
- Tennessee Titans (7-6)
- New York Giants (7-5-1)
- Washington Commanders (7-5-1)
- Denver Broncos – from San Francisco 49ers (9-4)
- Baltimore Ravens (9-4)
- Cincinnati Bengals (9-4)
- Kansas City Chiefs (10-3)
- Dallas Cowboys (10-3)
- Minnesota Vikings (10-3)
- Buffalo Bills (10-3)
- Philadelphia Eagles (12-1)
Just a quick note: How is it fair the Philadelphia Eagles have the fourth overall pick? Great work by them. They receive the New Orleans Saints’ first-rounder.
The Eagles could win the Super Bowl and end up with a top-five pick.
The Packers are tied with six other teams with a 5-8 record. Green Bay will be expected to beat the Los Angeles Rams at Lambeau Field on Monday night, but then faces tougher games against the Miami Dolphins, Minnesota Vikings, and Detroit Lions.
If Green Bay either wins one more game or loses out, it could end up with a pick near the top of the order. Likely in the top 10, at least.
But if Matt LaFleur’s team goes on a run late in the season, we could be looking at the 17th or 18th pick, unless they make the playoffs.
