Minneapolis, MN  -
With only a handful of games left to be played in week 15, the picture of where the top 10 draft picks are delegated (at the moment) is already clear. The Minnesota Vikings shocked the world and dropped 48 points on the Eagles today to earn their fourth win of the season and push their record to 4-9-1 on the year, effectively hurting their draft status for the 2014 NFL Draft.

The Atlanta Falcons and Washington Redskins played each other this week pushing the Falcons to their fourth win but that was all the help the Vikings got.

Here are how the top-ten picks would dole out if the season were to end today, even thought it won't.

*Note: The first tie breaker after record goes to strength of schedule with the team’s having the easiest schedule getting the advantage in draft slots.

For whatever it is worth, many recent Mock Drafts have Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr and some have Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel still available at the #8 pick.

Who do you want the Vikings to take if they land the #8 overall selection?
