NFC West Exec: Matt Kalil isn't the best OT prospect on the board.

The contrarian "Unnamed Exec states standout player ______ is not really the best ______ on the board" is a draft story as old as time.

And yet still more compelling than anything Delhommey has ever posted.

unamed exec is usually an exec for a team that is actually really interested in that player.

Wouldn't surprise me if "unnamed exec" was with St. Louis, and they want Kalil before we can get him with our #2 pick. Their offensive tackle play has been abysmal this year.

Amazing how people will construe fact to fit their agenda.

Random Fan A says: "Matt Kaleel is best OT prospect evahhh!!"

Credible NFL Source says: "Kalil isn't even the best player at his position."

Random Fan A doesn't know how to respond. Surely he can't consider the possibility that he is incorrect, so he manipulates the truth to suit his agenda.

"Oh yeah...Well he's probably just trying to get his hands on Matt Kal'el, the best prospect at OT evahh!!"

I'm posting this because of the misconception around here that Matt Kalil is a Joe Thomas/Jake Long type OT prospect-he isn't-and one NFC West executive doesn't even feel that he is the best OT on the board.

You know what I'd bet though? I'd bet if his name was Reilly Kalil, this board wouldn't shut up about him.

I'm also sick of the Draft being like the Super Bowl for Panthers fans..I'm sick of waiting for next year...I'm tired of hearing how bright the future is...It's time to start winning games.

I wanted him early... really starting focusing on just him his last few games... I wasn;t blown away... Not like Suh, Long, Megatron, and other players who just blow you away. Now it depends.... I really am all for BPA minus the LB, QB, and RB position.

Reiff is my favorite if the bunch, but I wouldn't mind any of the three. DJ Fluker entering the draft might make things interesting as well.

What about the other NFL Executives? What makes this one so credible?

Seriously, the fact that it's a NFC West executive has me questioning the scouting ability of whoever it is. It's not like the NFC West teams really have great offensive lineman. Now if it was an AFC East scout I might be a little more inclined to listen....

If it turns out to be a 49ers scout, would people take it more seriously?

I haven't really seen much of Reiff but I can say that both Kalil and Martin look like they will be VERY good. This is why I wouldn't mind a trade down from the #2 spot. Drop down a handful of spots, pick up an extra 2nd rounder. We might not land the very top OT (if we even go in that direction) but the dropoff should be pretty minimal.

Lol. When losing a battle of wits, undermine their credibility. You people are ridiculous.

"Pfft, I mean who cares if he has a position of power on an NFL team? Doesn't he know Matt Kalil's brother plays for the Carolina Panthers? Doesn't he know that I recognize his name? Pfft. This guy must be stupid. #SaveFace"

Maybe you should actually determine whether or not the people you're criticizing have spent an extended period of time watching X prospect before you make some asinine assumption that the only reason we like said prospect is because their name is familiar or because their sibling plays for the Panthers...just my .02...

And questioning the scout of a division that has three absolutely God awful teams personnel wise isn't that far off base, whether we're fans or not....but of course you know why all of us think Kalil is the real deal and why we all want him here, and you obviously know that X scout hasn't made some questionable scouting decisions before, or that it isn't a complete smoke screen to try and get a prospect they covet...:lol:
