NFL Draft 2013 order: Jets currently in line to pick 12th

The New York Jets won't be in the playoffs, but they will have a top half pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. At 6-9, they're currently slated to have the 12th overall pick.

The New York Jets won't make the playoffs, but the silver lining to their poor play is a draft position that has steadily risen as the team has failed.

As of today, the team is slated to pick 12th overall, with a 6-9 record heading into a season-ending game against the Buffalo Bills. A loss in that game could see them enter the top 10 of the draft order, but a win could drop them several spots.

Here's a look at the full top half of the projected order for the 2013 NFL Draft:

1. Kansas City Chiefs (2-13)
2. Jacksonville Jaguars (2-13)
3. Oakland Raiders (4-11)
4. Philadelphia Eagles (4-11)
5. Detroit Lions (4-11)
6. Buffalo Bills (5-10)
7. Cleveland Browns (5-10)
8. Arizona Cardinals (5-10)
11. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-9)
12. New York Jets (6-9)
13. Carolina Panthers (6-9)
14. Pittsburgh Steelers (7-8)
15. Miami Dolphins (7-8)
16. New Orleans Saints (7-8)

That said, it might not be in the team's best interest to use their 2013 pick. The Jets have several enormous salary commitments that they're going to try to get rid of during the offseason. Teams won't exactly be champing at the bit to take on huge salaries, so they might need to toss in a pick to sweeten the deal.
