Well, once again, if the Claiborne chatter is smoke… the Vikings are taking it to a ridiculous level.

Steve Wyche of nfl.com reports that the Vikings have LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne at the top of their draft board (presumably, after Andrew Luck) and says a source “reinforced” reports that the Vikings are leaning in that direction.

Of course, many will still believe that all of this Claiborne talk is aimed at generating further trade interest, which is entirely possible.
