Andrew The Viking

If the NFL season ended today, the following teams would be the Top 6 pickers in next year's NFL draft:

1. Indianapolis Colts (1-13)
2. Minnesota Vikings (2-12)
3. St. Louis Rams (2-12)
4. Cleveland Browns (4-10)
5. Jacksonville Jaguars (4-10)
6. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-10)

And as we all know by now the "golden treasure" in the upcoming draft is going to be Stanford Cardinal quarterback Andrew Luck.

So let's see:

With only two regular season games left it's going to be mathematically impossible for the Browns, Jaguars and Buccaneers to land the No. 1 pick. The Colts are in the driver's seat but the Vikings and Rams still have a shot at it.

The Colts have the great Peyton Manning at the helm and it would be an insult to him if they took Luck. Yes he's been out all season due to neck surgery but he's expected to be fully back next season. The Colts and Manning signed a 5-year $90 million contract last summer, so it looks like he'll be running the show in Indy for a few more years.

The Rams have Sam Bradford, whom they took with the No. 1 overall pick in 2010 and invested the family farm in him. So no Luck (pardon the pun) in St. Louis.

The Vikings have... (thinking)..... the Vikings have...? Hey Vikings fans, guess who's "IN LUCK" next season?!

In the world of the Vikings, will Luck be the Second Coming of Erik the Red? It sure looks that way.
