With the regular season having come to an end, the selection order for the 2013 NFL Draft has started to come into focus, with the first 20 picks being finalized after all of yesterday's action was completed.

The Kansas City Chiefs hold the top overall selection in this year's draft, with the Jacksonville Jaguars coming in with the second pick. The first 20 picks shake out like this:

1) Kansas City Chiefs (2-14)
2) Jacksonville Jaguars (2-14)
3) Oakland Raiders (4-12)
4) Philadelphia Eagles (4-12)
5) Detroit Lions (4-12)
6) Cleveland Browns (5-11)
7) Arizona Cardinals (5-11)
8) Buffalo Bills (6-10)
9) New York Jets (6-10)
10) Tennessee Titans (6-10)
11) San Diego Chargers (7-9)
12) Miami Dolphins (7-9)
13) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-9)
14) Carolina Panthers (7-9)
15) New Orleans Saints (7-9)
16) St. Louis Rams (7-8-1)
17) Pittsburgh Steelers (8-8)
18) Dallas Cowboys (8-8)
19) New York Giants (9-7)
20) Chicago Bears (10-6)

The rest of the draft order will be determined by the results of the NFL playoffs.

The four teams that lose on Wild Card Weekend will select 21st, 22nd, 23rd, and 24th. The four teams that lose in the Divisional Playoffs will pick 25th, 26th, 27th, and 28th. The teams that lose in the Conference Championship round will pick 29th and 30th. The loser of Super Bowl XLVII will select 31st, and the team that wins the Super Bowl will select 32nd. (With the exception of the Washington Redskins, whose first round pick belongs to the St. Louis Rams as a result of last year's deal that allowed the Redskins to draft quarterback Robert Griffin III.)

Draft speculation for the Vikings might actually be kind of interesting this season. . .you know, as opposed to four months of "You know the Vikings are going to draft Matt Kalil, and here's why that's a good idea."
