Current, for now, 2013 draft order
By Pat Yasinskas
Here is the current draft order -- as it stands for now -- at the scouting combine Thursday.
Things will change some in March because compensatory picks will be given out in then and that will impact things from the end of the third round onward. But, as it stands right now, two NFC South teams will be drafting with short decks.
The New Orleans Saints ad Carolina Panthers each have only five picks. San Francisco holds Carolina’s third-round pick and Oakland holds its seventh-round choice.
The Saints had to forfeit their second-round draft pick as part of their punishment for their bounty program. Seattle holds New Orleans’ seventh-round pick.
Tampa Bay has a division-high eight draft picks. The Bucs hold an extra fourth-round choice, courtesy of New England and Aqib Talib.
Atlanta has one pick in each round.
