With Indianapolis now picking after the Eagles, Philadelphia has a better likelihood to draft Cook, or another player that wouldn't have been there if the Colts were picking at 14. The Colts and Vikings are in a dead heat in the drafting process - identical 8-8 records and strength of schedule - and that required a coin flip to break the tie.

The order for the first round of the 2017 National Football League draft is officially set. The second tiebreaker - the coin flip. Eagles VP Howie Roseman was so excited after the coin came up Vikings.

But at least we now know the Vikings complete draft order, which means we can make wildly accurate mock drafts and trades, woo hoo!

RSS man announces bounty for Kerala CM's head, gets panned
While holding the chief minister responsible for the murders, Chandravat said Pinarayi had no right to live in this country. Leader of the Opposition Ramesh Chennithala demanded the arrest of the RSS leader who issued the death threat.

Philadelphia traded their own first round pick (No. 12) to the Cleveland Browns as part of the Carson Wentz trade but the Eagles recouped value by dealing Sam Bradford to the Vikings prior to the start of the 2016 season last September. The Eagles haven't won a playoff game since 2008. Or if you'd rather read about it: Dave Spadaro, the world's number-one Eagles fan/team website reporter, banged out a 764-word story on the coin-flip victory.

They did it. The coin was flipped. Just think: This pick could be the next Nelson Agholor!
