Matt Kalil - OT, Southern Cal

Pick made by TheSpear:

Best tackle in the draft class. Vikings need a standout WR and have Defensive needs but Kalil addresses a real need and gives them a great left tackle for the next 10 years. Charlie Johnson played horribly for them at Left Tackle, drafting Kalil and moving Johnson to Guard would greatly improve the line. I think he would have immediate impact as the current offensive line did not cut it.
