NFL Draft: Matt Kalil Has 'Very Good' Visit With Vikings

A handful of prospects have visited the Twin Cities recently as the Minnesota Vikings prepare for the 2012 NFL Draft in late April. One of those prospects was highly touted USC left tackle Matt Kalil, far and away the favorite to be selected by Minnesota with their third overall pick if they don't trade it on or right before draft day.

The Vikings themselves called the visit 'very good' according to Twincities.com, which should just fuel the fire that has been burning under the Kalil to Minnesota bandwagon for over a month now.

Barring a major change in plans by the Vikings or a significant trade to get that pick, it's looking more and more like Kalil will be the guy protecting Christian Ponder come the 2012 season.
