NFL Draft 2016: Order of first round updated after Divisional Round

We're now down to just four teams left in the NFL postseason.

The Divisional Round of the playoffs featured a host of thrilling finishes as four teams punched their tickets to the Conference Championship Round, while four others watched their seasons end and four more spots in the 2016 NFL Draft were finalized.

Of the four teams to lose, the Kansas City Chiefs had the best record at 11-5, which means they got the worst of the four draft spots and will pick at No. 28. Then comes the Green Bay Packers at No. 27, the Seattle Seahawks at No. 26, and the Pittsburgh Steelers at No. 25.

Yes, that means the Steelers will come right after the Cincinnati Bengals (24) for the second year in a row. Last year, it was Cincinnati holding pick No. 21 with Pittsburgh right behind them. That ended up being significant because the Bengals passed on stud pass-rusher Bud Dupree to the surprise of many, only to watch the Steelers scoop him up with the next pick.

Dupree would go on to have a so-so rookie season with four sacks, 26 tackles and one pass defense. The Bengals instead took offensive tackle Cedric Ogbuehi, who went on to play in limited snaps while recovering from a torn ACL that caused him to fall to Cincinnati that late in the draft.

In other words, the jury is still out on both players, but they'll forever be linked in the minds of many Bengals fans since their biggest rival got a player many viewed as superior with the very next pick.

That said, here's an updated look at the current 2016 NFL Draft order, via CBS Sports.
