Matt Kalil and the Minnesota Vikings have struck a deal. The St. Pioneer Press reports that Kalil and the Vikings have agreed to terms on his rookie deal, which should be signed at some point on Thursday. This will allow Kalil to enter training camp with the team.
Kalil was the fourth-overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft and should become an immediate starter in Minnesota. Coming out of USC, Kalil was the top offensive tackle prospect in the country. He's a Day 1 starter type of player who will be protecting Christian Ponder's blind side.
This completes the Vikings' draft class with all 10 picks signed.
There are now four first-round picks who have yet to ink their rookie deals, including Jacksonville Jaguars' Justin Blackmon, Miami Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill, Kansas City Chiefs' Dontari Poe, and Tennessee Titans' Kendall Wright.
