With their loss to the Colts, the Tennessee Titans will pick first in the 2016 NFL Draft.

The Browns, who lost to the Steelers, pick second overall, a decision that will fall to a new general manager and head coach.

Cleveland cleaned house following Sunday's loss and the Titans might follow suit.

The Titans and Browns finished with 3-13 regular season records, but Tennessee picks earlier due to a lower strength of schedule. Cleveland will also pick 32nd (first pick in the second round) because teams with the same record cycle picks each round.

Ole Miss left tackle Laremy Tunsil is the very early favorite to be the Titans' selection at No. 1. Meanwhile, the Browns could go in several different directions, including California quarterback (Jared Goff), Ohio State pass rusher (Joey Bosa) or Ole Miss wide receiver (Laquon Treadwell).

This is the official 2016 NFL Draft order:
