USC Trojans offensive tackle Matt Kalil is the best left tackle prospect in this year's 2012 NFL Draft. With Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck likely to be drafted first by the Indianapolis Colts and Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III probably going second to the Washington Redskins, Kalil seems like the logical candidate to go third. Offensive linemen are at too much of a premium, particularly at the left tackle position. It's just too important to keeping an offense functioning.
DraftTek files his latest mock, and with the third pick of the 2012 NFL Draft, the Minnesota Vikings take Kalil.
