2015 NFL Draft order: Tampa Bay Buccaneers hold at No. 1

There may only be two weeks left in the season but the first overall pick in the draft is far from settled.

The race for the No. 1 pick in the 2015 NFL Draft remains tight. The big game for Week 15, at least in regard to the draft, was the Tennessee Titans losing to the New York Jets. That loss moved the Jets back from the fourth overall pick coming into the week down to sixth. The Titans stayed at No. 2.

Tennessee is behind just the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the No. 1 pick due to strength of schedule tiebreakers. That keeps Tampa Bay in position to draft Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota first overall. Don’t think the Buccaneers need to take a quarterback with the first pick? Josh McCown was just 13 of 28 for 154 yards passing on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers.

After the Buccaneers and Titans, the top six is rounded out by the Jacksonville Jaguars, Oakland Raiders, Washington and the Jets.

Washington’s remaining games look the most challenging, and given strength of schedule tiebreakers they could move up dramatically if a team ahead of them wins.

After the top six, things will change following Monday night’s game between the Chicago Bears and New Orleans Saints, two teams currently picking in the top 10.

Here are the remaining games for top six teams:

Buccaneers Jets Raiders Jaguars Titans Washington
Week 16 Packers Patriots Bills Titans at Jaguars Eagles
Week 17 Saints at Dolphins at Broncos at Texans Colts Cowboys
