For myself, I tend to do my biggest lifts first. To me, the idea is to hit the biggest, most taxing lifts when your body is 'fresh' and your energy levels are at there highest. This way I can maximize my potential effort for the big (and theoratically most effective) lift.
However, having said that, i've done fullbody routines where I squat first and deadlift third (generally with OHP in between), and I still experienced progress with my deadlift.
