Vikings draft Matt Kalil fourth overall
|04.26.12 at 8:27 pm ET|
Some help is on the way for Christian Ponder, as Minnesota selected USC offensive tackle Matt Kalil fourth overall in the NFL draft Thursday night.
The Vikings initially held the third overall pick but moved down a spot in a trade with the Browns. There was speculation that the Vikings could have moved down a second time, but they stayed put and chose Kalil, the highest-rated non-skill position player in the draft.
Kalil is the brother of Panthers center Ryan Kalil.
