2012 NFL Combine: Matt Kalil Impressive In Workout

It seems almost certain that the St. Louis Rams are going to deal their number two overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft to whichever team below them values Robert Griffin III the most, but what is less certain is who they'll target when their pick comes up. They may look at their offensive line or maybe at receiver, and if it's the former, USC Trojans OT Matt Kalil gave the Rams a lot to think about after his performance at the 2012 NFL Combine on Saturday.

Kalil, who is the consensus top lineman in this year's draft, ran a 4.99 in the 40-yard dash, which was the fastest amongst offensive linemen, and that's with Kalil weighing in at a solid 306 pounds. Kalil also bench pressed 225 pounds 30 times, which put him amongst a dozen or so tackles to reach that number, and he also did the ten-yard split in 1.70 seconds, which is a more than solid number. All in all, Kalil did enough on Saturday to solidify himself as the tackle with the best combination of size and athleticism, and as such the best tackle prospect in the 2012 NFL Draft.
