1st-round pick Vikes sent to Philly for Bradford could be a top 10 pick

The Eagles are probably getting a top 15 pick from the Vikings thanks to the Sam Bradford trade.

The first-round pick the Vikings sent to the Eagles in the trade for quarterback Sam Bradford was supposed to result in a late-first-rounder.

That's not the case anymore.

If the season ended today, that pick would be No. 14, according to PlayoffStatus.com.

The current draft order:

  1. Browns: 0-14
  2. 49ers: 1-13
  3. Jaguars: 2-12
  4. Bears: 3-11
  5. Rams: 4-10
  6. Jets: 4-10
  7. Chargers: 5-9
  8. Eagles: 5-9
  9. Cardinals: 5-8-1
  10. Bengals: 5-8-1
  11. Panthers: 6-8
  12. Saints: 6-8
  13. Bills: 7-7
  14. Vikings: 7-7
  15. Colts: 7-7

How will the Vikings fare in their final two games? If they finish 9-7 or 8-8 that pick will stay outside the top 10, but if they finish 7-9 there is a chance Philly has an elite pick waiting for them in April.

  • Chargers: at Browns (0-14), vs. Chiefs (9-5)
  • Eagles: vs. Giants (10-5), vs. Dallas (12-2)
  • Cardinals: at Seahawks (9-5-1), at Rams (4-10)
  • Bengals: at Texans (8-6), vs. Ravens (8-6)
  • Panthers: vs. Falcons (9-5), at Buccaneers (8-6)
  • Saints: vs. Buccaneers (8-6), at Falcons (9-5)
  • Bills: vs. Dolphins (7-7), at Jets (4-10)
  • Colts: at Raiders (11-2), vs. Jaguars (2-12)

It's unlikely the pick will go much higher than it already is, but if Minnesota finishes 7-9, that pick could crawl into the top 10 if Arizona, Cincinnati, Carolina and New Orleans pick up some wins.

Highly unlikely, but possible, nonetheless.
