The Detroit Lions are in control of the 10th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft order.

It's official: The Detroit Lions own the 10th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. It's hard to believe that the Lions have another top-10 pick when they could have ended up somewhere in the 20s with another couple of wins and an NFC North title, but that's what happens when you lose six of your final seven games and go 7-9, I suppose.

Here's a look at the top 10 picks in the 2014 NFL Draft order:

1. Houston Texans (2-14)
2. St. Louis Rams via Washington Redskins (3-13)
3. Jacksonville Jaguars (4-12)
4. Cleveland Browns (4-12)
5. Oakland Raiders (4-12)
6. Atlanta Falcons (4-12)
7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-12)
8. Minnesota Vikings (5-10-1)
9. Buffalo Bills (6-10)
10. Detroit Lions (7-9)

The Lions actually finished with the same record as the Tennessee Titans, New York Giants and St. Louis Rams, but Detroit had a much easier schedule. That's the main tiebreaker for draft position, so the Lions ended up with the highest pick among the 7-9 teams.

The 2014 NFL Draft, by the way, will be held May 8-10.
