Thanks to a staggering 10-game losing streak, the Houston Texans are now in full command of the projected top pick in the 2014 NFL draft. The Texans are the lone two-win team in the league, meaning they will secure that selection should they lose out.

The Jaguars and Buccaneers, who appeared to be headed toward picks No. 1 and 2 (in some order) through the first half of the season, have climbed the standings with recent hot streaks — both teams have won three of four games.

The first tiebreaker for draft pick position is strength of schedule (SOS). Though those numbers change with each game, the current order below is based on where teams currently stand in that category.

Check back Tuesday for our updated 2014 Mock Draft.

(Updated after the Giants’ win over Washington on Sunday night.)

1. Houston Texans (2-10)
2. St. Louis Rams — via Washington Redskins (3-9; current SOS: .521)
3. Jacksonville Jaguars (3-9; current SOS: .538)
4. Atlanta Falcons (3-9; current SOS: .560)
5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-9; current SOS: .592)
6. Minnesota Vikings (3-8-1)
7. Oakland Raiders (4-8; current SOS: .479)
8. Cleveland Browns (4-8; current SOS: .493)
9. Buffalo Bills (4-8; current SOS: .545)
10. New York Jets (5-7; current SOS: .497)

i see the rams trading down again a couple guys we could get we dont need to jump that high for evans and watkins at wr will be avail lower and we could trade #2 again for say the clevland picks at about 7-8 plus the pick they got from indy mid 20s plus another 1st rounder in 2015 we still will have our own at about 12 and should be able to stock up.

Man my Dad is so happy that the Redskins have dumped this Season so now his RAMS have jeezus I still can't believe that after last season's semi resurgence that the SKINS would have fallen so flat but RG3 is a Tease.

The Rams will end up with the #2 or #3 Pick so they can Replace Bradford, take a Great O-LINE Player or GET A UBER WR plus a Top 12-15 Pick sets them up nicely. HOU should move on from Matt Schaub an Grab a QB.
