2012 NFL Mock Draft: SB Nation Has Vikings Taking Matt Kalil

Offensive tackle prospect Matt Kalil continues to be a favorite choice for the third overall pick that belongs to the Minnesota Vikings. The new SB Nation 2012 NFL mock draft has the pattern continuing, with the St. Louis Rams opting to trade their pick to the Cleveland Browns in this mock scenario so they can be assured of getting Robert Griffin III with the second overall pick.

I'm sure that the Vikings wouldn't mind that scenario one bit come draft day. With Christian Ponder in their ranks it's not like they were going to be pining for RGIII anyway.

3. Minnesota Vikings, Matt Kalil, OT, USC

Minnesota took a quarterback in the first round last year with Christian Ponder. Now, they give him an insurance policy with one of the best tackle prospects to come along in years. Kalil is as can't miss as it gets in the draft this year.
