Minnesota Vikings Mock Draft: Morris Claiborne over Matt Kalil?

We are quickly approaching the 2012 NFL draft, and there's still so many questions that have yet to be answered.

For starters, where will Peyton Manning be playing in 2012? Teams like the Cardinals, Redskins, Dolphins and Jets are interested, but which one will pull the trigger?

Also, we know Robert Griffin III is going to be a top-five pick, but will that involve a trade from a team like Washington, who owns the sixth overall pick?

Hopefully within the coming months we will be able to get answers to some of these questions, but until then, we are only able to speculate.

As for the Minnesota Vikings, they own the third pick, and have plenty of options.

A lot of what the Vikings do, however, will be based upon whether or not the Rams decide to trade down from the second selection.

Whether or not they do, talents like Matt Kalil, Riley Reiff, Justin Blackmon and Morris Claiborne are sure to be on their radar.

So, will the Vikings look to solidify the left side of their line with a dominant tackle like Kalil, or draft one of the best cornerback prospects in quite some time in Morris Claiborne?

Maybe they'll even surprise us all and draft Robert Griffin III. Besides, stranger things have happened before.

Without further ado, let's take a look at who the Vikings will be taking with the third pick, and who they'll be targeting in Rounds 2 through 7.
