NFL to Tinker With the Draft Order?

I used the search tool and didn't see anything come up for this topic and thought it was interesting.  Apologies if this is redundant.

Competition Committee to evaluate a new Method of Ordering Draft Picks.

The proposal: would keep non-playoff teams seeded as they normally would be, but would re-order the playoff teams according to performance.  

At face value it seems like a step in attaining fair draft ordering, but discounts some factors such as lower quality teams riding a hot streak, and upper echelon teams suffering injuries.

This from the Full Article

"A team can win a playoff game and yet get to draft before the team it beat," Rich McKay, the committee chairman, pointed out yesterday.

That situation will occur next month when the Eagles get to pick 21st while the Giants pick 29th.
