The general advice I have digested is that when using an explosive pull, it should come first. I believe this came from Starr, or Kono, or possibly both.

When I use an explosive Olympic lift my structure is:

Pull
Squat
Press

When my pull is not an explosive lift I often use:

Squat
Press
Pull

If you are squatting and deadlifting in the same workout the call is yours, though I personally believe deadlifting first is a better choice.
