EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — The Vikings will have the 23rd pick in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft.
The draft will be held April 28-30 in Chicago.
Before the playoffs started, draft picks **1 through 20 had already been determined**.
Draft order is determined in reverse order of regular-season record.
With the Vikings being one of four playoff teams to lose this past weekend, they have the 23rd pick because their 11-5 record was better than Houston and Washington's 9-7 marks in the regular season. Cincinnati, which went 12-4, has the 24th pick.
The Vikings also had the 23rd pick in the 2013 draft when they selected defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd.
Former Vikings DB Antoine Winfield was the 23rd overall pick by Buffalo in 1999.
