Vikings 2024 NFL Draft Selections

ScheduleGraphics_DraftSelections (1)

The Minnesota Vikings have nine selections in the 2024 NFL Draft, which will be hosted by Detroit on April 25-27, 2024.

Minnesota has been assigned the 11th overall pick in the first round based on reverse order of finish in the 2023 regular season.

The Vikings were one of four teams to finish 7-10, but tiebreakers resulted in the Falcons (No. 8 pick), Bears (No. 9) and Jets (No. 10) being awarded higher spots.

Minnesota has selected from the 11th overall spot three times in franchise history. The Vikings drafted defensive end Derrick Alexander in 1995, quarterback Daunte Culpepper in 1999 and cornerback Trae Waynes in 2015 from that position.

In the second round, the Vikings had the third spot among those four teams, landing at No. 42, but sent that selection to Houston along with others in a March 15 trade to acquire the 23rd overall spot.

The Vikings have picks in the following rounds (as of March 15, 2024):

First round: 11th overall

First round: 23rd overall (from Cleveland through Houston)

Fourth round: 108th overall

Fourth round: 129th overall (from Detroit)

Fifth round: 157th overall (from Cleveland)

Fifth round: 167th overall (from Kansas City)

Sixth round: 177th overall (from Carolina through Jacksonville; acquired Oct. 31, 2023)

Seventh round: 230th overall (conditional from Atlanta through Cleveland and Arizona; acquired Oct. 31, 2023)

Seventh round: 232nd overall (from Denver through Houston and San Francisco)

Teams normally are slated to have at least one selection in each of the seven rounds, but Minnesota has executed multiple trades.
