Two spots higher than we all would have liked

Now that the season for the Minnesota Vikings has, unfortunately, come to an end, it’s time to start looking forward to the next chapter for this football team.

(Well, either that or just continue being angry about it. I’ll go with the looking forward thing for now.)

As they lost in the NFC Championship Game, the Vikings will select at #30 when the 2018 NFL Draft comes around. The only two spots in the first round that are not set belong to the two teams that will play in Super Bowl LII in two weeks, the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots. The loser of that game will pick at #31, while the winner will select at #32.

Here, now, is the entire first round draft order for the 2018 NFL Draft as it has been settled so far.

  1. Cleveland Browns
  2. New York Giants
  3. Indianapolis Colts
  4. Cleveland Browns (from Houston Texans)
  5. Denver Broncos
  6. New York Jets
  7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  8. Chicago Bears
  9. Oakland Raiders*
  10. San Francisco 49ers*
  11. Miami Dolphins
  12. Cincinnati Bengals
  13. Washington Redskins
  14. Green Bay Packers
  15. Arizona Cardinals
  16. Baltimore Ravens
  17. Los Angeles Chargers
  18. Seattle Seahawks
  19. Dallas Cowboys
  20. Detroit Lions
  21. Buffalo Bills
  22. Buffalo Bills (from Kansas City Chiefs)
  23. Los Angeles Rams
  24. Carolina Panthers
  25. Tennessee Titans
  26. Atlanta Falcons
  27. New Orleans Saints
  28. Pittsburgh Steelers
  29. Jacksonville Jaguars
  30. Minnesota Vikings

The #9 and #10 picks will be decided by a coin flip at this year’s NFL Scouting Combine in February.

As you’ve come to expect from us, we’ll have plenty of NFL Draft coverage for you as it concerns the Minnesota Vikings. Since the team actually has a first round pick this year, we’ll even get to bring back the Mock Draft Database after a one-year hiatus.

I know we don’t want to start looking into draft stuff quite this early, but hey. . .what else are we gonna do?
