Even though the day has arrived in which the Vikings will make their true intentions known regarding the third overall selection in the Draft, there is still time for subterfuge.
One interesting report floating around right now comes from Viking Update. They sent out this tweet saying that LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne’s people were spotted in New York with Vikings gear in tow. This could be a sign of things to come, but it also wouldn’t be totally unreasonable to expect this is just more smoke.
If the Vikings do not plan on selecting Claiborne, however, then they are doing a darn good job of making it seem that way. Nearly every media typ is starting to waver when it comes to Matt Kalil being the pick including Michael Lombardi who says the Vikings are “focused” on Claiborne with hopes of getting an offensive tackle in the second round.
