Saints Will Have the 14th Pick in the 2009 Draft

With the end of the season, those of us who are fans of teams that did not make the playoffs start to turn our thoughts to the 2009 NFL draft. The draft, which will be held April 26th and 27th, is 117 days away but it has become a bigger event each year. Now with the regular season over, the initial draft order has been determined.

The New Orleans Saints will pick 14th. The Saints finished the season with an 8 and 8 record which tied them with four other teams. After the win-loss record, the order is determined by strength of schedule. San Diego, which also finished 8 and 8 is slated for 16th but since they are in the playoffs, may move to a higher slot.

Here is the order and the record of the top 15 teams:

1. Detroit Lions 0-16

3. Kansas City Chiefs 2-14
