Matt Kalil: OT, USC
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers started the free agency period with a splash and overhauled their offensive line by signing Pro Bowl guard Carl Nicks to a 5-year, $47.5M deal. The Bucs released center Jeff Faine and replaced him with guard Jeremy Zuttah. Tackle Jeremy Trueblood finished in the bottom 20 in ProFootballFocus' 2011 Pass Blocking Efficiency list, giving up 59 total pressures out of 596 pass block snaps. Drafting Matt Kalil would transform the Bucs front 5 and give them one of the most talented and dominant offensive lines in the NFL. Give Josh Freeman time in the pocket and he'll dissect any defense.
Next on the clock will be jhn with the St. Louis Rams.
