There is no denying that Matt Kalil is an incredibly talented offensive lineman who will protect his quarterback for years to come. Just about everyone sees the USC Trojan going somewhere in the top-five, although some trades could definitely switch around which team Kalil ends up on. In this latest mock draft from Draft Breakdown, Ryan Lownes sees Kalil going No. 2 overall to the St. Louis Rams.
Matt Kalil - OT - USC
Many experts feel this pick will be up for sale with teams pushing hard for the next highest ranked signal-caller, Robert Griffin III. If the Rams keep this pick they will be using it to aid Sam Bradford. No offensive line allowed more sacks during the 2011 season and Kalil gives St. Louis an elite blind-side protector.
Regardless if Kalil ends up in St. Louis, Minnesota, Jacksonville or any where else, it is a safe bet to think he will have an immediate impact on the franchise. Blessed with incredible size, athleticism and a true knowledge for the game, very few college prospects are as polished as this USC Trojan is.
