2011 NFL Draft Order: Patriots Have No. 17, No. 32 First Round Picks

With the conclusion of the 2010 NFL regular season on Sunday (as soon as the Rams and Seahawks decide the NFC West), we learned more than the playoffs schedule: we also now know the order for the 2011 NFL Draft.

The Carolina Panthers have the No. 1 pick, thanks to their NFL-worst 2-14 record. The Denver Broncos get the No. 2 pick, narrowly beating out the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals.

The New England Patriots have Oakland's No. 17 pick because of the Richard Seymour trade, as well as their own first-round pick, currently slotted in at No. 32 (the final 12 slots will officially be determined depending on how far teams advance in the playoffs; the Super Bowl winner will get the No. 32 pick). The Pats also have the Panthers' second-round pick (via a trade), which is the No. 33 overall -- that's three of the first 33 picks for New England in the 2011 NFL Draft.
