2012 NFL Draft: Buffalo Bills Reportedly Very Serious About Matt Kalil

According to the Buffalo News, the Buffalo Bills’ interest in USC left tackle Matt Kalil is legit.

NFL Network’s Charley Casserly reported the rumor first late Wednesday night that the Bills were considering moving up in the first round to draft this year’s top left tackle prospect.

With the top five essentially up in the air, speculation developed that Kalil could begin to drop to the fifth, sixth or seventh spots.

The latest reported information now indicates that the Bills are willing to surrender both their first and second-round picks (10, 41 overall) to the Minnesota Vikings in order to move up to No. 3 overall. More importantly, this is probably the best deal the Vikings are going to get.

Minnesota seems to be desperate to move out of the third overall spot. But the Tampa Bay Buccaneers would likely only offer picks No. 5 and No. 68 (perhaps 140 overall as well), while the Miami Dolphins could potentially offer No. 8 and one or both of their third-rounders.

Buffalo offering a high second-rounder is a nice sweetener for the Vikings, who are trying to accumulate draft picks to fill out their roster.

With 10 overall picks in the draft, the Bills definitely have the ammo to make the deal happen and still plug holes in Rounds 3 through 7.

If so, they’d land a potential—and widely predicted—franchise left tackle. The trade-off is that they’d miss out on some serious talent in the second round.

So, Bills fans. What do you think? Should the team make this move for Kalil?
