It’s the final weekend of the 2018 NFL regular season, but we still don’t know for certain who will be the first team at the podium for the 2019 NFL Draft.
Following the results of the 1 p.m. EST games, we do have a clearer picture of who it could be.
With the New York Jets’ loss to the New England Patriots, they fell to 4-12 and are still in the running for the pick.
The Arizona Cardinals had the league’s worst record going into the weekend with a 3-12 record, and play against the Seattle Seahawks today.
The San Francisco 49ers had the second-worst record in the league with a 4-11 record, and play against the Los Angeles Rams.
As a result, the scenarios are as follows:
- The the Cardinals will pick No. 1 overall if they lose to the Seahawks today.
- The 49ers pick will pick No. 1 overall if they lose to the Rams, AND the Cardinals win.
- The Jets will pick No. 1 overall if both the 49ers and Cardinals win their respective games.
We’ll find out for certain who gets the coveted No. 1 overall pick later today, but the Cardinals are 14-point underdogs heading into Seattle.
Suffice it to say, the odds suggest that Arizona will soon be on the clock.
