With the third-overall selection becoming as much of an uncertainty the selection owned by the Cleveland Browns, the Berea Faithful will hold a private workout for Southern California offensive tackle Matt Kalil on Wednesday.

Kalil, the top-rated offensive lineman of NFL Draftees, will be conducting his second meeting with Cleveland as the 6-foot6-inch, 300-pounder was in town for a private visit earlier this month.

The Minnesota Vikings, owners of the third-overall pick, have reportedly been looking for partners to trade down. In the event they do stay at No. 3, the Vikings could use help at left tackle, but have also been rumored to be in the mix for LSU cornerback Mo Claiborne.

If Kalil falls to the fourth pick, the Browns would also most likely field offers from teams interested in trading up for a premier starting left tackle as he would be moved to right tackle in Cleveland — the fourth-overall pick has been considered by many to be too costly for a player tasked primarily with run blocking. Kalil served as a backup right tackle in 2009 and started one game at that spot against Boston College.

“Joe Thomas to me is a good comparison [to Kalil],” said ESPN’s Todd McShay. ”I think Kalil has a little bit more — I don’t want to say nasty in him, but he’s got a nasty side.”
