NFL Trade Rumors: Bills Interested In Vikings' Top Pick

NFL analyst Charley Casserly is reporting that the Buffalo Bills are interested in the Minnesota Vikings' third pick in the NFL Draft, which begins Thursday evening.

Casserly, who works for CBS Sports and NFL Network, tweeted the rumor Wednesday, saying that the Bills covet USC offensive tackle Matt Kalil and would be willing to fork over a second-round pick for the rights to No. 3 as they attempt to move up from the tenth pick.

NBC Sports was among the outlets to report the news, writing that the Bills might have delusions of grandeur.

While it's sensible that the Bills would target a left tackle, the approach in Casserly's report hints that Buffalo believes itself to be one player away from serious playoff, even Super Bowl contention. Most observers would probably disagree with that notion. But if G.M. Buddy Nix has identified Kalil as a truly elite, franchise-caliber left tackle capable of making quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick better, there shouldn't be anyone trying to stop him.

The Bills' second-round pick is No. 41 overall, thought it could take even more than that to get a deal done.
