With the 2011 NFL season in the books, the draft order for the first round of this year's draft (to be held April 26-28) is set - well, mostly. Two sets of teams - Carolina and Miami, and Kansas City and Seattle - each finished with matching records, matching strength of schedule, and matching opponent won/loss record, so that great arbiter of fairness, the coin flip, will be used.

At the Combine next week, the Panthers and Dolphins will flip for the eighth spot in the draft (loser gets ninth), and the Chiefs and Seahawks will flip for the 11th spot (loser gets 12th).

Everything else has been settled for the first round.
