The order of the first two rounds of the 2017 NFL Draft is decided.

Following the conclusion of Super Bowl LI and the 2016 NFL season, the Draft is next up and in full focus when it comes to the NFL calendar. The Bengals will pick ninth overall and 41st overall.

The Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots will pick 32nd overall and the runner up Atlanta Falcons will have the 31st overall pick.

In Round 1, the Carolina Panthers pick before and the Buffalo Bills pick after the Bengals. In Round 2, it's again the Panthers before the Bengals, but the New Orleans Saints afterward due to the Bills, Saints and Philadelphia Eagles sharing the same 2016 regular-season record.

Here’s a look at the order for the first two rounds of the draft, which kicks off on April 27, 2017 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
