BR Community Mock Draft: Minnesota Vikings Select...

The Buffalo Rumblings Community Mock Draft rolls along, with the No. 3 overall pick coming at you right now...

With the third overall pick in the BR Community Mock Draft, 'CanadianBillsFan' and the Minnesota Vikings select USC offensive tackle Matt Kalil.

"This was really a no brainer," writes CBF. "The Vikings already have their QB of the future in Christian Ponder, so what better way to protect him than drafting the best tackle prospect since Joe Thomas? I mean in the end there were three options: draft Kalil, draft Morris Claiborne, or trade back. Drafting Claiborne would have only happened in the event of a trade down, and trading back was only going to happen if the Vikings were going to get a Redskins-for-Griffin type ransom for the third pick, which wasn’t offered. Not even close. So in the end it stays the status quo, and the smart pick: Matt Kalil."

With that, 'billsoferie' and the Cleveland Browns are now on the clock - and we've very nearly met our four-picks-a-day goal on the first day. Good on you, Rumblers! From this point forward, you'll be able to keep track of the entirety of our mock draft after the jump of each new post.

1. Indianapolis Colts: Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford (jesterz21c)
2. Washington Redskins: Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor (Southern Bill)
3. Minnesota Vikings: Matt Kalil, OT, USC (CanadianBillsFan)
