Are the Minnesota Vikings really considering Notre Dame's Michael Floyd with the third overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft? Adam Schefter seems to think so. (Photo by Justin K. Aller/Getty Images)
We're a week away from the start of the 2012 NFL Draft, and the Minnesota Vikings are still attempting to convince people that the third overall pick in the selection process can be had for the right price.
The Vikings attempts at misdirection have managed to convince at least one prominent member of the NFL media.
"Even Michael Floyd." (Oh, and I'm guessing that Schefter meant Matt Kalil, but I just did a copy-and-paste of his tweet.)
Now, don't get me wrong, I like Michael Floyd. I wouldn't mind seeing Michael Floyd wind up as a member of the Minnesota Vikings. . .if it came after the Vikings traded down.
But Floyd as the third overall pick in the NFL Draft? No. No way. Uh-uh.
And that, in turn, should put any Justin Blackmon rumors to rest, too. . .if there's a question as to whether or not you're the best player at your position, you're not the #3 pick in the draft.
The Vikings are trying to drum up interest in the third overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. It appears that they've convinced Adam Schefter that they're undecided. . .makes you wonder who else might be convinced at this point.
