Minnesota Vikings Draft Matt Kalil & Harrison Smith & NFL Draft 1st Round Thoughts

Minnesota Vikings pull the trigger with two picks in the first round of the NFL Draft 2012. The Vikings moved back to get Matt Kalil OT from USC with a trade deal from Browns and Harrison Smith SS from Notre Dame from the trade with Baltimore Ravens. Kalil is good enough to bolster their defense with poor left-tackle situation in Minnesota. It is a no-brainer pick for Minnesota to protect more of their young quarterback Christian Ponder.

Minensota Vikings got Harrison Smith from a trade deal with the Ravens. Smith is a strong safety who can attack the ball with wide range as what he did in Notre Dame.

The Vikings also bags Josh Robinson, the athletic corner back from UCF. The Vikings was lured to Robinson's combine stats in Febuary as the fastest 40 time running it in 4.33 seconds. He can leap 38 1/2 inch vertical and raw skills that can develop him quickly into a contributor or a rookie starter.

Minnesota gets tougher defense with Harrison Smith and Matt Kalil in the lineup and now corner back Josh Robinson.
