We now know the first 20 picks in next year's draft.

The Arizona Cardinals lost on Sunday, which eliminated them from playoff contention. They finished 10-6 on the season, which was the best record among those teams that made the playoffs. They were the best of the worst.

What that does is secure them the 20th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Here is how the first 20 picks will be:

1. Houston Texans - 2-14 (.559)
2. St. Louis Rams (via Washington Redskins) - 3-13 (.516)
3. Jacksonville Jaguars - 4-12 (.504)
4. Cleveland Browns - 4-12 (.516)
5. Oakland Raiders - 4-12 (.523)
6. Atlanta Falcons - 4-12 (.553)
7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - 4-12 (.574)
8. Minnesota Vikings - 5-10-1 (.512)
9. Buffalo Bills - 6-10 (.520)
10. Detroit Lions - 7-9 (.457)
11. Tennessee Titans - 7-9 (.504)
12. New York Giants - 7-9 (.520)
13. St. Louis Rams - 7-9 (.551)
14. Chicago Bears - 8-8 (.465)
15. Pittsburgh Steelers - 8-8 (.469)
16 or 17. Baltimore Ravens - 8-8 (.484)
16 or 17. Dallas Cowboys - 8-8 (.484)
18. New York Jets - 8-8 (.488)
19. Miami Dolphins - 8-8 (.523)
20. Arizona Cardinals - 10-5 (.529)

The Ravens and Cowboys will flip a coin at the NFL Combine to determine who drafts first.

The other 12 teams will be placed in the remaining picks according to elimination in the playoffs.

At number 20, it may be unlikely that one of the top quarterback picks will be available. Likewise, the best offensive tackles will also likely be gone.

Where should the Cardinals go? Safety? Tight end? Pass rusher? Running back?

We now have many months to speculate and debate.
