Full order of 2023 first round after Chicago Bears claim No. 1 pick

Here is a look at the first-round order for the 2023 NFL draft after the conclusion of the 2022 regular season.

The Chicago Bears claimed the top pick in the 2023 draft by ending the season with a 10-game losing streak. The Houston Texans, who won two of their last three games, surrendered positioning for the No. 1 pick on the season’s final day.

The Bears have had the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft just twice before, 1947 (Bob Fenimore) and 1941 (Tom Harmon).

The draft order is determined by record, and using strength of schedule as a tiebreaker (record and strength of schedule are official tiebreakers to determine the draft order).

The final 14 first-round spots will be determined by playoff results. For now, those teams will be ordered based on playoff seed.

The 2023 NFL draft is scheduled to be held in Kansas City from April 27-29.
