NFL Draft 2012: Twitter Reaction To Matt Kalil To Minnesota Vikings

It has been quite a night in New York City for USC Trojans All-American left tackle Matt Kalil. The 6'6.5", 306-pound lineman was drafted No. 4 overall by the Minnesota Vikings, making him the highest lineman drafted in the draft. Kalil continues a tradition of several Trojans offensive linemen drafted in the top five who were drafted in the top five and went on to great success in the NFL.

Kalil also joins brother Ryan Kalil, a former Trojan himself, and a three-time Pro Bowl center for the Carolina Panthers. Ryan joined brother Matt for the festivities and has been tweeting pictures all night. Ryan also tweeted the following:
