The Vikings are getting a lot of calls about the third overall pick in Thursday's NFL draft. "That front has really heated up over the last 24 hours," Rick Spielman told The Star Tribune. "And I'm sure it will continue to heat up as we head for Thursday night." Spielman confirmed Minnesota is considering a trio of players at No. 3 -- Matt Kalil, Morris Claiborne and Justin Blackmon. "I really believe in being patient and settling and seeing what comes to you," Spielman said. "(We're) not soliciting, going out there and making calls. There have been X amount of teams that have already started to call. Everything’s intriguing this time of year."
