It's always risky to predict picks based on who has or hasn't visited as NFL wide there is little correlation between who a team picked and who they had for visits. Now it may be different for an individual franchise where the people involved will have more predictible tendancies and I don't know enough of his history in Buffalo, but when Buddy Nix was working for AJ Smith in San Diego he was part of a selection team that frequebtly drafted guys who had never been to the facility. Some GMs prefer that as it's harder for other GMs to get a feel for your targets.
As for the issue of Claiborne at 3 that would be my pick for the Vikings were I to do a draft, I rate both Claiborne and Kalil highly but prefer Claiborne and it does make sense for them from a need stand point.
Then again I would go with Fletcher Cox to the Rams rather than either of the WRs they tend to get so perhaps my opinion isn't to be trusted.
