Vikings’ Frazier casts doubt on assumption team will take Kalil

Many are assuming that the Vikings will take left tackle Matt Kalil with the third overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, but comments that coach Leslie Frazier made to The Star Tribune on Sunday might cast that idea in doubt.

“You’ve got to really weigh your options,” Frazier said. “Because the philosophy (in the NFL) has always been to get the game-changer. And left tackle is not necessarily the game-changer. Usually game-changers are the guys who can score you points. Receivers. Quarterbacks. So what are we measuring that left tackle against? It’s a loaded debate.”

Vikings GM Rick Spielman has declared the team will either pick Kalil, CB Morris Claiborne or WR Justin Blackmon. If Frazier is truly worried about the game-changing potential of Kalil, perhaps Claiborne or Blackmon will be the pick.
