After the Panthers lost (they will pick before the Bengals) and the Eagles won (they will pick after the Bengals) in Week 17, the Bengals will have the ninth or 10th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.
The Ravens, who failed to achieve a winning season after losing to the Bengals on Sunday, will have around the 16th overall selection, pending some of the late afternoon games.
This will be the best draft pick the Bengals have had in six years, after six one-and-done playoff seasons. If the Bengals do as well with their first round pick in 2017 as they did when selecting A.J. Green with the No. 4 overall pick in 2011, next season could be a great one for Cincinnati.
Here is the 2017 NFL Draft order (for the first 20 picks), pending the results of the late afternoon and Sunday Night Football games.
