Matt Kalil

I think we should draft him if we're in position to in April. MJG just signed a one year deal, Otah is always banged up and Gross is getting older and more expensive. He gives us instant depth, security and a guy who can replace either of our OT's when the time comes.

Not a sexy pick, but I believe in building teams from the inside out. The line of scrimmage is where games are won and lost.

Thoughts?

I like it a lot. I think Kalil ends up being one of the better players from next years draft. He's a stud at LT. If Otah gets hurt again, Carolina should draft Kalil and start him from day 1 as the LT. Move Gross back to RT for the rest of his career. IMO his skill set is better suited for RT anyways.

If we're in the top 3, I'd trade that pick away. If we're in the top 5 I'd go for Kalil for sure.

Part of me wants our team to have a high pick so we can trade it away for more picks, then part of me wants our team to pick in the late 20's...Realistically. I'd want those lines to be solid though. So I say hell yeah to Kalil.

I definitely wouldn't mind Kalil at all but I think CB or DT is more of a pressing need. Someone like Cliff Harris would go a LONG way to improving our defense....

Personally, I want Robert Woods to sue the NFL and enter the draft

I agree with this. And I also think that most if this board doesn't know of any other OTs in the country besides Kalil and gush over him mainly since he's Ryan's brother lol

Matt is the best OT in the country by a far margin....CB is just a much bigger need IMO. It has nothing to do with people not knowing other OT....

I think he's the best in the country but not by as far a margin as you say. Riley Reiff and Jonathan Martin are both pretty good. And no, i dont think many people here know any other good OTs

I'll admit I don't know anything about any other LT candidates, but I've heard from several sources about how good he is and you know he'd have instant chemistry with the line.

Robert Woods still has a lot to prove. Is the talent there? Oh yes! But he is inconsistent and you have to factor in he is surrounded by some of the best talent in college football. Last season he had a monster game, 12 catches, 224 yards, and 3 tds. Besides that game? Next week he had over 100 yards and 2 tds and then not another game the whole year over 100 yards. Only 1 other game with a single touchdown. That was it.
