Yes, it’s a small sample size, but after two games, the Denver Broncos are currently on track to select first overall in the 2024 NFL draft.
If the season ended today, the 0-2 Broncos would have a tiebreaker for the No. 1 overall pick due to their .382 strength of schedule. The Los Angeles Chargers, Chicago Bears, Minnesota Vikings, Houston Texans, Cincinnati Bengals, New England Patriots, Arizona Cardinals and Carolina Panthers are also winless through two weeks of play.
Here’s a look at the current order of the top ten picks in 2024, courtesy of Tankathon.com:
1. Denver Broncos (0-2)
2. Chicago Bears (0-2)
3. Los Angeles Chargers (0-2)
4. Minnesota Vikings (0-2)
5. Arizona Cardinals (via Houston Texans, 0-2)
6. Cincinnati Bengals (0-2)
7. New England Patriots (0-2)
8. Arizona Cardinals (0-2)
9. Chicago Bears (via Carolina Panthers, 0-2)
10. Las Vegas Raiders (1-1)
