The Minnesota Vikings continue to analyze the NFL Draft and figure out what they want to do with the third-overall pick in tomorrow night’s first round. General Manager Rick Spielman says there’s a chance they will trade the pick to another team in order to stockpile additional selections in this year’s draft, as well as future drafts. However, if they use the pick for themselves, he says they will choose one of three players. The three candidates are Oklahoma State receiver Justin Blackmon, USC left tackle Matt Kahlil [[ kuh-leel ]], or Louisiana State cornerback Morris Claiborne.
