For teams that finished last season with a losing record, like the Minnesota Vikings, now is the best time of the offseason. Unlike Seattle, fans of the Vikings don't need to worry about how they are going to keep the team together as other teams attempt to pick off free agent after free agent. 

There's plenty of speculation on who the Vikings are going to select with the eighth pick in the draft—or whether they make a deal to move up or down in the first round. It's fun to fantasize about quarterbacks Teddy Bridgewater or Johnny Manziel suiting up for the Purple next year—just don't count on that happening.

Minnesota general manager Rick Spielman has stated that the Vikings have a goal of 10 picks every year in the NFL draft. Currently with only eight picks, Spielman will need to do some wheeling and dealing in order to add another two draft picks.
