It is a bittersweet position to be in. When you select that early in the draft, you have a lot more options as to who you want to pick. But it also means that you had a pretty bad season.
The Vikings ended the season 5-10-1. Just last season, this Minnesota team had a 10-6 record and a wild card birth in the playoffs.
Who do you think the Vikings should look to select with the #8 overall pick? Should they try to trade up or down?
