2012 NFL Mock Draft: Todd McShay Predicts Rams Will Pick OT Matt Kalil

ESPN's latest Mock Draft from draft guru Todd McShay has the St. Louis Rams picking OT Matt Kalil with the second pick in the 2012 NFL Draft:

The Rams need to better protect the investment they made in 2010 No. 1 overall pick QB Sam Bradford, and current LOT Jason Smith has not lived up to expectations as the No. 2 overall pick in 2009. Given Kalil's size and athleticism, he is ready to step in right now and take over at left tackle.

The Rams currently stand a 2-12, a game behind the Indianapolis Colts (1-13) for the top pick by one game. Meanwhile, the Rams are also one win away from possibly falling to the third pick behind the Minnesota Vikings (2-12).

Kalil, whom SB Nation's Ryan Van Bibber predicts will land with the Rams, is a lineman prospect who could very well be one of "the top prospects for the 2012 NFL Draft."
