The first round of the 2012 NFL Draft arrives on Thursday. The consensus top three picks have been seen as a virtual lock for some time now, but the draft, if nothing else, is endlessly unpredictable.
The Minnesota Vikings hold the No. 3 overall pick and speculation from the outset has leaned toward the idea that the team would be selecting USC Trojans offensive tackle Matt Kalil, believed to be the top offensive lineman in the draft. On Thursday, Michael Lombari of the NFL Network reported that the Vikings are "focused" on LSU Tigers cornerback Morris Claiborne. Lombardi stated that the Vikings would then opt to pick up a tackle in the second round.
