Matt Kalil

I just don't see us drafting Kalil. We have two good Tackles. They really like Byron Bell, who played well sunday against Clay Matthews, and Kalil doesn't have the size to move inside.

Just don't see it.

If we don't draft Kalil, there's another good prospect in Jonathan Martin, left tackle for Stanford.

If we have a shot at Kalil we really should take him. yes, we have bigger needs, but right now I don't think there is a CB or DT at the same value as Kalil.

Matt Kalil also blocked a kick, or was it a XP, cant remember, against Cal last week.

Very versatile and with Otah not being able to be counted on, he should get a hard look.

I think St. Louis will end up drafting him first in all honesty. Not unless they start winning games pretty soon here.

Matt Kalil has three blocks on the season so far....

Yea, the Stanford guy is one of 4 I mentioned in the mock draft thread I'd be interested in if we're picking top 10. Some stuff I've read about him implies he'd be better as a RT anyway, his pass blocking score is only a 3 on the ESPN Scout Insider system for draft prospects. Kalil's is a 1. Picking a RT in the top 10 is a bit high, though. Ideally (if we're taking an OT) we can get Kalil and let Gross switch back to RT soon afterward. I wouldn't be disappointed with Martin though.

Outside of one missed block on a WR screen where he was out on the edge, Kalil was dominant last night. The entire Trojans o-line showed up keeping Barkley upright the entire contest. Along with helping the line to a zero sacks allowed performance, Kalil almost blocked another kick in the game....

Probably the next Joe Thomas and won't be available when we pick, even if we pick third overall.
