2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Matt Kalil, OT, USC
Kalil is excellent in run blocking: stays low, great drive blocker, gets his hands in position quickly, hand-punches defensive linemen where he wants them to go. When it comes to playing hard and with a nasty attitude, he brings it every game and every play. As a pass blocker, he moves very well laterally. Quick feet. Can eat up a bull rush with his ability to stay at home, keep his butt behind him and low in order to hold his ground.
The number one offensive line prospect is definitely Kalil. Kalil has a long family history of offensive linemen: his brother Ryan was a second round pick by Carolina in 2007. His father Frank played offensive line in the USFL back in the day. The only knock on Kalil is that he doesn't have that high-ceiling athleticism like his former teammate Smith and he'll need to add a little bit of muscle between now and his NFL playing days begin.
