Matt Kalil #75 OT
Height: 6-6 Weight: 308 Age: 23
Born: 7/6/1989 Corona , CA
Experience: 2nd season
High School: Servite HS [Anaheim, CA]
Selected By: Minnesota Vikings
Pick (Overall): 4 (4)
Kalil is the undisputed top tackle prospect in this year's draft after two successful years starting on the left side for USC. He is an early-entry junior who has been a reliable blindside protector for Matt Barkley. He has all the physical tools to achieve success at the next level and has continued to develop his game technically. Kalil has an NFL pedigree, as his dad was a former semi-professional player and his older brother Ryan is a consistent Pro Bowl center for the Carolina Panthers. He should be the first lineman off the board and could easily be a top-five pick and immediately hold down the starting left tackle position for an NFL team.
