NFL Draft Rumors: Buffalo To Trade Up For Matt Kalil?

Former USC Trojans offensive tackle Matt Kalil has been rumored by many to be the No. 3 overall pick by the Minnesota Vikings. But with the Vikings' interest in Kalil apparently waning, according to Peter King's report two days ago, other teams could slide into the picture. One of those teams is the Buffalo Bills, who have the No. 10 pick and, unlike some of the teams above them, could really use a left tackle. However, Buffalo would apparently be interested in trading up to ensure Kalil's availability rather than hoping he slides all the way from No. 3 to No. 10, according to CBS Sports' Charley Casserly:

Casserly's spelling -- Buuff -- aside, this is a move that could make sense for the Bills. Left tackle is a need, and if the Vikings don't go with Kalil -- or trade their pick, leaving Kalil on the board -- moving up for the best prospect at the position in the draft isn't a bad idea.
