    All thoughts of any legitimacy of this post went out the window when I read the following:

    Re: Kalil returning to school....

    Kalil is an option for the Rams. From PFT:

    One of the major early questions about the upcoming draft has been answered.ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports that USC tackle Matt Kalil has decided to go pro. Mort believes Kalil is a top-five pick, potentially the premier left tackle in this draft. Matt’s brother Ryan plays for the Panthers and is the highest paid center in football.We still haven’t heard about USC quarterback Matt Barkley’s status yet. It was believed that whether Kalil stayed would be a bellwether for Barkley’s future. We’d expect Barkley to declare his status sooner than later.

    Given the state of the offensive line, absolutely he is. My top two options at this point would be Kalil and Blackmon, with Claiborne as a dark horse.

    But if Minnesota remains in front of the Rams when draft day rolls around, it's tough for me to see them passing on Kalil.

    I'd prefer Kalil, but Blackmon would be a hellava consolation prize.

    This is good news if its true. I know the draft is a lottery, but I like are chances a bit more now of getting a true blue chipper.?

    I can never get excited about drafting a tackle in the first round. Especially when I feel like if we go that route, we're going to end up drafting our receivers in rounds 3-5 again and have the same problem next year we did this year, but with moderately better oline performance. We don't need a tackle, we need an offensive line.

    The Rams shouldn't even look at position, they should take the best player available.

    J. Smith was forced a little. They had a need at tackle and they took the best tackle even if he wasn't a sure thing. All the tackles ended up being a bust so Smith versus any of the others wasn't the issue. They seemed to be drafting to fill a position when they should have been drafting the best talent. (that's what they did with Long, JLau and Saffold)
