This draft tonight remains a fluid process and what’s refreshing is the rumors are flying out the window with more things being factual. Recently NFL Network’s Jason La Confora stated that the Vikings aren’t willing to move beyond the 5th pick as they are rumored to want LSU’s Morris Claiborne. The Vikings also may have a trade brewing per ESPN’s Adam Schefter who are interested in trading up to 4 for Oklahoma State’s Justin Blackmon.
But going back to Claiborne, all the news this past week was how the Vikings wanted him? But do they actually prefer him to Kalil who has been mocked to the Vikings in nearly every mock draft.
Either way this night is off to a great start for the Vikings and Rick Spielman smells like a rose right now. Back with more later.
