Current NFL Draft order 2013: Chiefs pick first, Vikings spot to be determined

The Minnesota Vikings clinched a playoff berth on Sunday and, therefore will have their position in the 2013 NFL Draft determined by their playoff results.

The Minnesota Vikings will pick anywhere between No. 21 and No. 32 in the 2013 NFL Draft after clinching a playoff berth on Sunday.

The first 20 picks are determined in order of record, from worst to best, with the tie breaker going to the team with a weaker strength of schedule. Picks No. 21 to No. 32 make up the playoff teams and are arranged in order of playoff elimination.

The Kansas City Chiefs are effectively on the clock, as they will pick first. The Chiefs own the tie-breaker for the top spot over the Jacksonville Jaguars thanks to a weaker strength of schedule. Strength of schedule is the first tie-breaker for draft order, followed by divisional record, then conference record.
