2014 NFL Draft: Vikings Fall To #6 Pick

Jonathan Daniel

The Minnesota Vikings got their third win of the season on Sunday over the Chicago Bears at the Metrodome, and as a result have gotten farther away from the #1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

If the season were to end today, our favorite football team would select at #6 overall. They have moved out of the Top 5 after their efforts the past couple of weeks.

Today, the top overall pick belongs to the Houston Texans, the NFL's lone remaining two-win team. The second pick remains with the Jacksonville Jaguars, who have held the top spot for most of the season. The third pick would go to the Washington Redskins. . .or, more correctly, it would go to the St. Louis Rams, who the Redskins still owe draft picks to as a result of the trade for Robert Griffin III a couple of seasons ago.

At the present time, the top ten picks look like this:

1) Houston Texans (2-10, .552 opponents win-loss percentage)
2) Jacksonville Jaguars (3-9, .505)
3) St. Louis Rams (3-9, .516, pick comes from Washington Redskins)
4) Atlanta Falcons (3-9, .549)
5) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-9, .578)
6) Minnesota Vikings (3-8-1, .531)
7) Cleveland Browns (4-8, .500)
8) Oakland Raiders (4-8, .510)
9) Buffalo Bills (4-8, .516)
10) Pittsburgh Steelers (5-7, .474)

There are five other teams with the same 5-7 record, but the Steelers have the lowest opponents' win-loss percentage of the group, so they get that last spot in the top ten.

As always, this list is brought to you via the data provided by the Great Blue North Draft Report.
