    Every other day on the NFL.com website there is a story reminding us that RG III is among the leaders in pro-bowl balloting. What is more amazing is that rookie Matt Kalil is the leading vote getter for Offensive tackles in the NFC. For a rookie to start at left tackle in the NFL is quit an accomplishment. If Kalil were a black summo, we would be hearing about this non-stop on all the pre-game shows.

    The Vikings' DWFs were pretty bored by that 1st round pick, and downright confused by Harrison Smith. They ended up with 2 outstanding picks. Kalil could anchor that line for the next ten years. I'm not sure the last time a team took 2 white players in the first round, and one of them wasn't a QB.
