Matt Kalil is the undisputed top tackle prospect in this year's draft after two successful years starting on the left side for the USC Trojans. He is an early-entry junior who redshirted his first year at USC and has been a reliable blind side protector for Matt Barkley. He has all the physical tools to achieve success at the next level and has continued to develop his game technically throughout his career.
But how did he do on the drills Saturday during the NFL Combine? Extremely well, of course.
Kail's 4.99 40-Yard Dash was the second-best run amongst offensive linemen. Kalil also ran the Three Cone Drill in 7.33 seconds, which was the second-best time by three-tenths of a second.
In the Bench Press, he put up 30 reps, which is on the higher side of results for the day. He also had a 27 inch Vertical Jump and a 4.65 20-Yard Shuttle run.
It was a solid day for the top tackle on almost everyone's draft board. Kalil did nothing to change the fact that he'll be among the first players drafted in 2012.
