USC Trojans left tackle Matt Kalil isn't as much of a sure thing as Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III, at least when it comes to the draft order. There's a good chance a team will try and take a look at another one of the many talented athletes out there, even if you have a bona fide prospect like Kalil who could probably be a surefire starter on either side the moment he suits up for his NFL team.
Ryan Van Bibber of SB Nation files his latest mock, and for now Kalil sticks at three with the Vikings.
Sometimes I wonder if the Vikings will take a different player here. Trading down is a possibility, depending on how badly some team wants Claiborne or Richardson ... or even, you know, the best offensive tackle in years.
