The top-5 of the NFL Draft has changed drastically once again. As teams win and teams lose, things are so bunched up that the first overall pick turns into the third at the drop of a hat. Another loss for the Baltimore Ravens brings them another step closer to the first pick in April's draft. After the blowout loss to the Seattle Seahawks, the Ravens hold the fourth overall pick.

1. Tennessee Titans: 3-10 (.495 strength of schedule)
2. San Diego Chargers: 3-10 (.524 SOS)
3. Cleveland Browns: 3-10 (.529 SOS)
4. Baltimore Ravens: 4-9 (.514 SOS)
5. Detroit Lions: 4-9 (.529 SOS)
6. San Francisco 49ers: 4-9 (.534 SOS)
7. Dallas Cowboys: 4-9 (.543 SOS)
8. Jacksonville Jaguars: 5-8 (.466 SOS)
9. Miami Dolphins: 5-8 (.476 SOS)
10. New Orleans Saints: 5-8 (.514 SOS)

The Ravens sit right behind the Titans, Chargers and Browns, who are all tied at 3-10. The 4-9 club has Baltimore leading the way with the lightest strength of schedule, but teams are breathing down their necks. With a tough final three games the Ravens are looking at, it wouldn't be unexpected to see the team finish their season at 4-12, tying their worst record ever way back in 1996, the first year the franchise existed.

If the Ravens were to lose out, and all of the 3-10 teams were to win a game, the Ravens would hold the second pick in the draft, something the team has never done in it's 20-year history. In fact, the highest the team has ever picked would be the fourth spot that they are sitting in right now, where they selected tackle Jonathan Ogden and Peter Boulware in 1996 and 1997 respectively.
