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).
