The first thing you'll probably ask is "Why the heck did you write about this, Ted? I've had a stressful day, it's getting kind of late, and now you're going to get me all worked up."
I refer you to the title. Check out this tweet by NFL guru Adam Schefter:
RT @Cyphate: Nobody is talking Vikings. Who will they draft 3rd overall? ... My feeling today is in the minority. Think WR Justin Blackmon.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 29, 2012
Personally, I think he's way off, but...what if he isn't? Normally, I would throw out the BS flag and say 'no way. But, Schefter also tweeted this little gem a little while later. It seems QB Ryan Tannehill had an impressive pro day (for full disclosure, I took the day off and went fishing...all day. It was great, thanks for asking, but the downside of that is I didn't see any NFL news at all. Caught some nice largemouth bass, though...but I digress) and Miami might be looking to trade up, again, according to Schefty:
RT @BenMitchum: Do you see the Dolphins taking Tannehill or likely gone with the Browns? ... Think Vikings might have some trade leverage.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 29, 2012
So, could the Vikes be looking to trade out of #3, get some more picks, and NOT draft Matt Kalil?
Is this acceptable, or do we need to grab some torches and pitchforks?
I prefer Kalil, but I don't know that I'd be ready to riot if they trade and draft down. I could be talked into it, don't get me wrong, because I'm just a miscreant at heart.
So, what's the verdict?
