Southern California left tackle Matt Kalil is "set to return" for his senior season according to a source close to the situation.

Kalil, 6-6 and 295 pounds, just finished his second season as the Trojans' starting left tackle. He earned First Team All Pac-12 honors and is currently rated by NFLDraftScout.com as the No. 3 overall prospect in the country. Though his older brother, Ryan, returned for his senior campaign at USC prior to the center being drafted in the second round of the 2007 draft by the Carolina Panthers, most expected Matt to leave early.

A high-ranking NFL scout confirmed that he'd also heard Kalil was "definitely leaning towards returning" and that the decision surprised he and his scouting peers, as well.

"If he does indeed return, it would be a bit surprising. He's the top offensive tackle in the country. The senior class [at offensive tackle] is a weak group. At worst, he'd be looking at a top ten pick. That fact alone would send most guys into the draft."

Wonder if this affects Barkley's decision as well...

This actually hurts us because that was a player (that we weren't targeting) and takes us 1 spot back from the player that we actually want. There was no chance we were going to land Kalil at #2, so this is bad news. If Barkley stays as well, this will hurt us as well, because we do not need a QB and there will be less players to choose from the top for other teams to select before us.

Minny will be good in a couple years with Ponder and Peterson.. they just need to find a WR and some pieces in the secondary.. same with us.

Now Mortensen is saying Kalil WILL enter the draft

USC T Matt Kalil has decided to turn pro, per sources. Projected as top-5 pick; premier LT prospect. No word on Barkley. #NFL32 #ESPN #USC
