* – St. Louis traded the No. 2 overall pick to Washington for the No. 6 overall pick, a 2012 second-round pick, a 2013 first-round pick and a 2014 first-round pick.

** – Oakland traded its No. 17 overall pick and a 2013 conditional second-round pick to Cincinnati for QB Carson Palmer.

*** – Atlanta traded the No. 22 overall pick to Cleveland – along with 2011 first-, second- and fourth-round picks and a 2012 fourth-round pick – in exchange for the 2011 No. 6 overall pick, which the Falcons used to draft WR Julio Jones.

**** – New Orleans traded the No. 27 overall pick to New England, along with a 2011 second-round pick, in exchange for a 2011 first-round pick (No. 28 overall), which the Saints used to draft RB Mark Ingram.

Clubs involved in two-club ties will alternate positions from round to round. In ties that involve three or more clubs, the club at the top of a tied segment in a given round will move to the bottom of the segment for the next round, while all other clubs in the segment move up one position. This rotation continues throughout the draft. Among the playoff teams – those drafting 21st through 32nd – the only teams that are affected by this rule for tied teams alternating picks are Atlanta and Detroit at Nos. 22 and 23. New England remains in the 31st spot throughout the draft by virtue of its runner-up finish in the Super Bowl.
