2007 Guide: What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about RYAN KALIL: Southern Cal, 6026 299 5.01. Three-year starter. Clearly one of the best centers in the 2007 draft. An athletic and sound technician who is the leader of the offensive line. Makes the calls for the interior line. Physical, intense, and aggressive competitor. Quick hands to get into defender and control him. Strong hands to position and lock out on nose tackles. Does a good job on hand placement to regain his leverage. Quick and athletic feet to adjust with lateral slide to movement. Good change of direction and flexibility. Sudden to reach and cut off the linebacker’s pursuit. A good effort player that takes good angles. Keeps feet and stays up on block. Solid in space to run through and finish. Marginal size for position. Needs to add bulk and strength to anchor and hold ground. Arms are shorter than ideal. Will overextend at times. Outstanding initial quickness to gain position on the defender. An intelligent and steadying influence on the line. Good body control to get out of trouble, redirect and shift his weight. Sudden pivot and turn. Mentally tough and consistent. Plays with good knee bend and in a football position. Light feet and finish ability. Second round. (A-31 1/2, H-10, BP-34, 10-1.76).
