NFL Draft 2012: Rams May Target QB Robert Griffin III Or OT Matt Kalil

The latest mock draft from AOL's Sporting News suggest the St. Louis Rams will pick USC Trojans OT Matt Kalil with the second pick in the 2012 NFL Draft -- assuming they keep the pick:

2. St. Louis Rams: Matt Kalil*, OT, USC. The Rams will most likely trade this pick to a team that wants Griffin. If they keep the pick, they will grab Kalil to shore up their offensive line and give blindside protection to Sam Bradford.

The quarterback out of Baylor, Robert Griffin III is projected to be selected in the Top 5 or 10 of the draft, but at No. 2, the Rams would have more time to grab the athletic Texan a few picks lower.

Griffin has passed for 3998 yards in the 2011 NCAA College Football season, connecting for 36 TDs and only 6 interceptions. Griffin also rushed for 644 yards in 2011, adding another 9 TDs on the ground.
