EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings will have the 11th pick in the 2015 draft.

The Vikings were one of three teams with a 7-9 record, but the combined record of their opponents was worse than Cleveland and New Orleans to put them ahead of the Browns and Saints. The draft will be in Chicago, April 30 through May 2.

The 2015 schedule has also shaped up, though dates and times won’t be set until the spring.

Plus two games each against the NFC North, the Vikings will play the NFC West and AFC West: at Arizona, San Francisco, Denver and Oakland and home against St. Louis, Seattle, Kansas City and San Diego. By finishing third, the Vikings will also host the New York Giants and play at Atlanta.
