NFL Mock Draft 2012: Matt Kalil To The St. Louis Rams

In the majority of 2012 NFL mock drafts to this point, it seems the pundits believe the St. Louis Rams will draft either a wide receiver or address the offensive line with the first selection. A receiver offers more excitement, but perhaps the an offensive lineman is more pragmatic. The Sporting News' Russ Lande projects that the Rams will go the OL route and take Matt Kalil from Southern Cal.

2. St. Louis Rams: Matt Kalil*, OT, Southern Cal. Sam Bradford had a disappointing 2011 season. A big reason was the poor play of St. Louis' offensive line. Tackles Rodger Saffold and Jason Smith did not play well. Kalil should be able to take over at left tackle as a rookie and shore up the pass protection.

If not Kalil, maybe Oklahoma State WR Justin Blackmon is the guy for the Rams.
