    looks like we will get the 6th pick now. No Kalil at that spot.

    I guess we will have to reach for a left tackle this year and hope we get lucky.

    Jonathan Martin?

    Why the hell would we have the sixth pick? As of right now we are the No. 3 pick in the draft. We would have to beat the Bears to drop further than that. Only three more teams could jump us and they would all have to lose while we win (Browns, Bucs and Jags).

    If we lose we are picking no lower than No. 3. If we win, we could fall to no lower than sixth, but I am not sure we fall behind those teams.

    If we end up in a 4-way tie (meaning we win next week), we get the 6th pick.

    The tie-breaker is Strength of Schedule, and we have had a harder schedule than all of the other teams we would be tied with. Thus, we get the 6th pick, and they get 3-5.

    I understand that is possible ... but to say we have the sixth pick is currently wrong.

    But if we lose we won't have a tie with anyone else except maybe the rams if they win, which is best case scenario.
    I am NOT here to provide good football insight or rational observations. I am an emotional 19 year old Viking fan and I expect you to adjust your expectations from my posts.

    Yeah ... if we were to lose and the Colts and Rams win ... we would most likely get the No. 2 pick because right now we have a .558 SoS and the Rams have a .588. The Colts have a .533.

    If we win ... and the Browns, Jags and Bucs lose (which means the Jags lost to the Colts) then we would as of now be the sixth pick. But by winning our percentage would go down a little because the Bears SOS would be down and the Bucs (.550) could easily climb ahead of us in SOS and move us into the No. 5 slot.

    Remember ... this would all bank on the Jags beating the Colts and the Bucs and Browns both losing while we beat the Bears.

    I personally think we will lose to the Bears and get the No. 3 pick. Though I am rooting very hard for the Rams!

    Jags are likely to beat Indy in Jacksonville, but Bucs and Browns are likely to lose. It will be extremely hard for us to lose to the Bears. Since losing Cutler and Forte, they are now the worst team in the NFL. I think that pushes us back to the 6th spot.

    If the Jags and Vikes win, and the Browns and Bucs lose, the Vikings will draft 5th.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Some good points...trading down getting more picks is one...but it needs to done by someone who has an eye for talent...it's been said a million times here we need a GM...that is our biggest need"....
