Vikings get 17th overall pick

The NFL issued an updated draft order. The Vikings will select 17th overall.

There were four teams with 8-8 records. But the Vikings strength of schedule was the second-easiest, at .504, behind the Arizona Cardinals (.434). The Houston Texand (.516) and the Philadelphia Eagles (.563) have the 18th and 19th picks, respectively.

The Vikings didn't do so bad the last time they had No. 17. In 2006, that pick landed them LB Chad Greenway, who just had a very solid season.

In the NFC North, the Chicago Bears pick 14th, with the Detroit Lions one spot behind them. The Green Bay Packers have the 30th pick.

Come on now, do even a little bit of research before you post incorrect information.

The draft order is set with the superbowl winner bumped to 32 and superbowl loser bumped to 31. Therefore the 30th pick goes to the best record not in the superbowl.

GB and Dallas were both 13-3 with GB's strength of schedule .469 and Dallas's .496. Dallas picks 30th and GB picks 29th.

Just go to if you can't be bothered to actually think before you post.

Thanks for suggesting checking; now maybe you should take your own advice.... lists picks 28, 29,30 and 31 as Dallas, San Francisco (from Indianapolis), Green Bay and New York Giants, respectively. Your strength of schedule numbers were incorrect, also.

So much for being "bothered to actually think before you post."
