Mock drafts are popping up all over (much like fungus). Here’s one from NFL.com’s Steve Wyche speculating that the Cleveland Browns will trade up to #2 and take Baylor QB Robert Griffin III. This isn’t just Wyche taking a shot in the dark either; sources have told Wyche that the Browns want Griffin. A mock draft with actual useful information in it instead of just mindless guesswork and the same scouting report crap we’ve read a thousand times? What’s this world coming to?
Now let’s watch the draft speculation dominoes tumble. Luck goes #1 to the Colts (that’s written in stone apparently). The Browns trade up and take Griffin. That leaves Matt Kalil for the Vikings if they want him. And why would the Vikings not want him? He’s a big strapping talented left tackle. He could hold down that position for ten years (or suck, one or the other). I won’t go so far as to say the Vikings have to take Kalil if he’s available, but I believe they would be wise to. I could also live with Morris Claiborne since he’s a corner and they need one of those. Justin Blackmon? Pass.
