Matt Kalil

Pick: 4,
Player: Matt Kalil,
Team: Vikings,
Position: OT,
School: Southern Cal,

The younger brother of Carolina's Ryan Kalil, the highest-paid center in the NFL, Matt is widely viewed as the top tackle in the draft. He initially backed up Tyron Smith at right tackle, then, as a sophomore, beat out Smith for the vacancy at left tackle. Kalil has a large collection of remote-controlled cars that he raced this off-season when he wasn't working out for the draft. -Sam Farmer, Tribune Newspapers
