NFL Draft Order 2013: Vikings will pick No. 23 in the 1st Round

Bruce Kluckhohn-US PRESSWIRE

Looking to add a key piece to a playoff team, the Vikings currently hold the 23rd pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

While the 2012 NFL season has yet to conclude, 30 of 32 teams have already moved on to April's draft. The order is nearly set, with only the Ravens and 49ers needing to settle the final two picks.

The Vikings will have the 23rd overall pick in Round 1. It's the last pick among the teams that finished 10-6, with both the Redskins and Bengals winning a tiebreaker among the playoff teams and picking ahead of Minnesota. It's a portion of the draft where many teams start to weigh more heavily the strategy of picking the best available player over a specific team need. GM Rick Spielman and the Vikings front office are already well into the scouting process, but now nearly the entire first round has been firmed up. Here's your complete draft order for April's first round.
