2012 NFL Draft Rumors: Vikings Eyeing Morris Claiborne

The top two picks for Thursday are pretty much set, but have the Minnesota Vikings took away even more drama by already settling on their pick at No. 3? It seems as though that might be the case as Minnesota is leaning towards LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne, if they don't trade the pick.

Most mock drafts had the Vikings selecting USC offensive tackle Matt Kalil with the third pick, but the Vikings seem to like Claiborne more. Rather than choose Kalil, Minnesota appears content to select an offensive tackle at the beginning of the second round.
