NFL Draft question

Big Rick in FL : 11/14/2017 9:28 am
So right now we are 1-8 and the 49ers are 1-9. They have a bye week this week and the Giants play the Chiefs. Most likely we are going to lose. Which would put us at an equal 1-9. According to tankathon.com our strength of schedule is 0.524. The 49ers is 0.548. If we do end up losing are we #2 in the draft order? Thanks for any help!
SOS tiebreak vs SF

NYG trending slightly better for picking ahead of SF.
SOS analysis should exclude common games (so current SOS is not best indicator).


NYG vs SF strength of schedule tiebreak (wins by non-common opponents, lower total picks ahead)
==============================================================================
NYG:: DAL, WAS, PHI, KC, LAC, OAK, DEN, DET, TB
5 + 4 + 8 + 6 + 3 + 4 + 3 + 5 + 3 = 41

NYG has 14 Automatic Pickups:
DAL-PHI*, DAL-LAC, DAL-WAS, DAL-OAK, DAL-PHI, WAS-LAC, WAS-DEN, PHI-OAK,
KC-OAK, KC-LAC, KC-DEN, LAC-OAK, OAK-DEN, DET-TB

Giving NYG total of 55. NYG has possible pickups in 35 games.


SF:: ARI, LAR, SEA, CHI, CAR, JAC, HOU, IND, TEN
4 + 7 + 6 + 3 + 7 + 6 + 3 + 3 + 6 = 45

SF has 14 Automatic Pickups:
ARI-HOU* ARI-JAC ARI-LAR, ARI-TEN, ARI-SEA LAR-SEA
LAR-TEN SEA-JAC JAC-HOU JAC-TEN JAC-IND HOU-TEN
HOU-IND IND-TEN

Giving SF total of 59. SF has possible pickups in 33 games

If total ends up the same, I'm not sure what happens with NYG/SF tiebreak.
Yes

Weaker sos picks first. Which to me has never made sense. I could see it if they did not play head to head but if they do it should be head to head as the first tie breaker. Going by sos is like penalizing a team twice for playing a harder schedule. The draft is supposed to be in order of weaker teams to stronger teams and I don't see how sos is a better barometer for competence than H2H.
To sum up

the Giants have a 4 game lead in the tiebreak with 68 relevant games left to play.
But, when we have a good week in practice

What would our draft order be when we are 8-8?

in all honesty, i hate to say it, but i cant see this team going winless next 7 weeks... I think too many Division games are close, no matter what. I have to think this team has some pride left to show up for a divisional game, especially if Washington is eliminated.. I dont know..
This team is no good for people with high BP
This team won't win another game this season

You know that's not true. This team isn't through ripping our hearts out just yet. What will happen is we will go into week 17 only needing one final loss to secure the 1st overall pick and somehow Washington will lay an absolute egg and the Giants will win a 13-10 type fiasco. Costing them the first pick. It's absolutely guaranteed to happen.
I'm with Optimus

I could definitely see us losing the rest of the games. We almost have no shot at the #1 pick so that really doesn't matter. Most likely we only win 1 more game and we would still end up picking in the top 3.
I don't see a win in the Giants immediate future.  
Giant John : 11/14/2017 11:20 am : link
Cleveland would probably beat us.
There's absolutely no reason to win another game  
Jeever : 11/14/2017 11:51 am : link
Except for Pride. And Pride left town several weeks ago.

This should be an extended pre-season look at our young guys and different combinations on the OL and DL. Start Eli to keep his streak alive and give Webb some touches in the second half of games getting out of hand.
I thought head to head was the first consideration.

First pick feels like a curse for some reason.  
idiotsavant : 11/14/2017 12:40 pm : link
I just seems like a worthwhile puzzle to put together whole drafts. "Work" the likelyhoods and trends.

If they cannot reverse some of the thinking here with regards to trade downs and interior linesmen, dont know what to tell you.
