The Philadelphia Eagles have a strong shot at getting a top five pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, and are in line to pick fourth overall if things hold up Week 17.

The Eagles don't have a chance at drafting first - they have four wins, while the Jacksonville Jaguars and Kansas City Chiefs only have two each with just a game left to play - but could potentially climb up to No. 3. The Oakland Raiders and Detroit Lions also enter the final week of the season with four wins, so those three squads will jockey for position in the final week of the season.

Here's a look at the top of the draft order as it stands right now:

1. Kansas City Chiefs (2-13)
2. Jacksonville Jaguars (2-13)
3. Oakland Raiders (4-11)
4. Philadelphia Eagles (4-11)
5. Detroit Lions (4-11)
6. Buffalo Bills (5-10)
7. Cleveland Browns (5-10)
8. Arizona Cardinals (5-10)
9. Tennessee Titans (5-10)
10. San Diego Chargers (6-9)

With a loss against the New York Giants in their final game, the Eagles will guarantee themselves a top five pick. A win wouldn't be the worst thing, as they're already ensured of picking amongst the first ten teams, even if they win and all 5-10 teams lose. The Giants need a win to keep their playoff hopes alive.
