2005 First-Round NFL Draft Order

With the regular-season records tabulated, the Vikings know they will have the 18th selection in 2005 NFL Draft, held April 23-24. Updated to reflect recent trades.

NOTES
Draft-order ties: The cumulative record of each team’s opponents is used as the tie-breaker. The team with the weaker opponents receives drafting priority. Within a tied segment (teams with same record), teams that are not in the playoffs will be given priority. Teams within a tied segment that are involved in the playoffs will be seeded according to their progress in the playoffs. Teams will not drop out of a tied segment unless they advance to the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl champion will select last (32nd) and the runner-up will select 31st.
