Mike Mayock doesn’t want to hear about the Vikings taking a receiver #3 overall. In a conference call on Thursday the eminent football wonk and Vikings preseason color man said it will either be Matt Kalil or Morris Claiborne for Minnesota. Justin Blackmon and Michael Floyd do not enter the picture for the Vikings at 3, in Mayock’s estimation.
This flies in the face of Adam Schefter’s recent reports indicating the Vikings are looking at Blackmon and Floyd as well as Claiborne and Kalil. But of course a lot of people think Schefter is receiving bad info from the Vikings anyway. On one thing, Mayock and Schefter do seem to agree: Matt Kalil is not a lock at #3 for the Vikes.
