My cunning plan to fix the NFL draft order and why it's a problem

EDIT: Here's your new 2014 NFL draft order. Or how it should be under my method:

Spoiler!


Okay, so this will never ****ing happen, unless Clark Hunt or some big time dickswinger reads Chiefs Planet. I acknowledge that. But just as a thought exercise, I was trying to figure out a way that the NFL might possibly fix its biggest problem-- the fact that Andrew Luck plays for the Indianapolis Colts and why it really is a problem not only for nearly all of the NFL's fans but also for the money-grubbing asshole executives who run the league.

To cut down on space for the TL;DR folks, I'm spoilering my reasoning for why the draft order determining method needs to be changed. I strongly encourage you to read it before ripping my idea to shreds. Otherwise I'll tell you to go fist your sister.

Spoiler!


How the new draft order will work:

1. All tiebreakers from strength of schedule to the coin flip will stay they same. The tiebreakers aren't the issue here, but if you have a more elegant solution, I'd love to hear about it.

2. Seeding for playoff teams (21-32) will stay the same.

3. Seeding for slots 1-20 will be based on the COMBINED W/L record of the past THREE seasons.

4. That's it. The rest stays the same. Rookie contract slotting, trading, everything.


By ranking non-playoff teams in order of combined record over many seasons, you improve the league in so many ways. Here are just a few:

1. You eliminate the possibility of a team that just conveniently got bad in a good draft year for a top QB (or other player, I guess). In this scenario, the Colts would have been still at home ****ing themselves with dildos because they suck. That's the most important reason to do this.

2. There will be fewer exceptionally shitty divisions. And while this problem usually gets solved within a few seasons (See NFC West before 2012, AFC West before 2013), there is still always a lemon division out there that can mess with determining who the real best teams are for the playoffs and who just got a good schedule. Fixing that so shitty teams have a better chance to raise the basement level of the division would go a long way. It would further confirm the Parcells mantra: "You are what your record says you are." And that's what we want, right?

3. Good teams that just get bit in the ass one year (2013 Houston Texans) have no incentive to lose hope and say "**** it." In other words, in this system now teams actually DO play to win the game. Your season might be over, but you're still not gonna get a grand prize for losing, other than the chance to fire your shithead Patriot Way general manager and all his pussydick cronies and henchmen. You gotta be REALLY terrible in order to get that treasure, which isn't worth it to any team. The competition bar would be raised, and even late-season games with terrible teams would have some better entertainment value.

Thus, the TRULY terrible teams are guaranteed the top spots. And I think that's what the draft should be all about-- giving the worst teams the best chance to get out of that losing pit.

Great Plan! A true Chiefs Planet GENIOUS! (CP Spelling)

The only problem I see with it is teams might be careless cuz they don't have to get it right as quickly as they do now. It's like they will be rewarded for sucking for yeas instead of just one. But that's really not much different than the current system.

4. Teams that still whiff on top-end draft picks have further incentive to draft a variety of positions near the top of the draft. We'd see more WRs and CBs get taken near the top instead of the usual QB, OT, DE. We'd also see a lot more trades happening at the top of the draft. Which is exciting for everybody. It makes the chicken bones in Chris Berman's vocal cords vibrate with anticipation

Rams would have had the opportunity to draft Luck. Would they have traded the pick like they did for RGIII?

I'm intrigued, but I could also see this having the opposite effect intended, and rather than a team tanking after half a season, they'd go into the season tanking.
