Matt Kalil

I have always said the lines are the most important areas in football. If you can hold against pressure on O and create it on D it makes everybody on the team look better. Cam is a man that can tear a D up if he can get more time for our recievers to get open.

So I would love this. We could finally move Gross back to his all-pro RT position and we get a better pass blocker at LT. It would do wonders for our run blocking as well. And the RG position needs a solid FA pickup as well. We got a potential All-pro QB we need to protect him both directly (with pass blocking) and indirectly (the running game).

Next we need to bring in a solid DT in the 2nd.

I do like the idea of drafting Kalil if we can, but don't forget about Otah. Some have suggested he could slide in to RG. If that would work, it would create one beastly OL.

If we win more than 6 games there is no way in hell we get him.

Otah still has one year left on his contract after this year. There is now way they give up on him now, plus we have guys with potential they like already on the roster. There is just too much money sunk into the o line rignt now anyway for them to give up and start over at this point and time. Otah would have to get hurt and miss the rest of the year again for them to consider using a top 10 pick on a lineman.

who cares? It all depends on how poorly we play to the end of the season and if Injuries are still kicking our ass.

If so a first round pick at the OL is probable.

I think Otah has gotten a lot of leniency. He's been out for sooo long. But we are a different team without the guy. But at the same time you can't miss that much time either. We needs a guy that won't be out this long. Who knows if his knee will be fine now. I guess time will tell.

Yeah he hasnt done enough for you lately, but last time i checked we had a whole knew coaching staff and apparently he has a clean slate with them. Thats why i say drafting a lineman first next year is not likely, unless we get pretty much nothing out of him this year then yeah there is a possibility.

Exactly, just gotta let the year play out.

But to stay on topic with the thread, i like Matt Kalil i think him or the dude from Stanford are definitely franchise LTs. Kalil seems like he has Joe Thomas potential.
