I don’t think anyone at WFNY is a proponent of losing in order to have better draft picks in the NFL. After 11 games and only three wins for the Browns it is becoming increasingly difficult not to at least think about the draft and where the Browns could end up picking. That being the case, it is interesting that this week’s matchup with the Raiders could prove to be important when it comes time to figure out who is picking where. According to one of the best sources for draft info, NEPatriotsdraft.com the Raiders have a slight edge on the Browns because they use strength of schedule to determine tie-breakers in-season. The Raiders are currently listed 4th with the Browns at 5th. 1. Kansas City Chiefs (1-10) 2. Jacksonville Jaguars (2-9) 3. Carolina Panthers (2-8) 4. Oakland Raiders (3-8) 5. Cleveland Browns (3-8) 6. Philadelphia Eagles (3-7) 7. San Diego Chargers (4-7) 8. Buffalo Bills (4-7) 9. Tennessee Titans (4-7) 10. Detroit Lions (4-7) As you can see, there’s no telling where the Browns will ultimately end up on this list because they have a chance to beat the Raiders this weekend. Additionally, the one-win Chiefs, who are currently in first place are also upcoming on the Browns’ schedule. [Related: Animated: NFL has obvious issues with officiating consistency]
