I now realize I'm a noob when it comes to the draft. but why do we have the 12th pick in the first round, and the 16th pick in the second, then in the 3rd I belive its the 15th... why is that?

We tied record-wise (8-8) with other teams, but beat them in tiebreakers (strength of schedule), so we get the first 1st round pick of the 8-8 group. In the second round, we get the last pick of the 8-8 group, second to last in the 3rd, and it keeps rotating like that throughout the rounds.

Teams with the same record rotate each round. We had the highest pick in the first, so we rotate back to the end of the group of 8-8 teams and then work our way back up.
