Here’s Where the Minnesota Vikings Pick in the 2023 NFL Draft
Unfortunately for Vikings fans, their team's season came to an end on Sunday. One positive is that the fans now know when their team will pick in the upcoming 2023 NFL Draft.
The Vikings do not currently hold a pick in the second round of this year's draft, as that pick was sent to the Lions as part of the TJ Hockenson trade.
The Minnesota Vikings will pick 23rd overall in the first round of the draft this season.
Here is the draft order that we know so far, with the final 8 spots still pending due to the ongoing postseason:
1) Chicago Bears
2) Houston Texans
3) Arizona Cardinals
4) Indianapolis Colts
5) Seattle Seahawks (from Denver)
6) Detroit Lions (from LA Rams)
7) Las Vegas Raiders
8) Atlanta Falcons
9) Carolina Panthers
10) Philadelphia Eagles (from New Orleans)
11) Tennessee Titans
12) Houston Texans (from Browns)
13) New York Jets
14) New England Patriots
15) Green Bay Packers
16) Washington Commanders
17) Pittsburgh Steelers
18) Detroit Lions
19) Tampa Bay Buccaneers
20) Seattle Seahawks
21) Los Angeles Chargers
22) Baltimore Ravens
23) Minnesota Vikings
Here are some needs and a short word from an article at NFL.com:
Biggest needs: DB, DL, WR
DP: Will Minnesota be able to re-sign Dalvin Tomlinson? His departure would leave a huge void in a Viking's defense that is in need of upgrades.
We'll have to wait and see how the remainder of the postseason shakes out, but the Vikings are locked in at #23 overall for the time being.
