I'd take Kalil over Blackmon. But the Rams desperately need receiver help, and that'd make three consecutive years they've taken a tackle.
I'm a big believer in finding other solutions for high frequency/low return draft spots. The Chiefs never did find themselves a truly dominant DT in the Vermeil era. Doesn't matter. Take the loss and move on. Yes, there are still holes, but you've at least still acquired first round talent for the position. Try to make it work for another year, or fix it in free agency.
The Lions desperately needed offensive line help this previous draft so they could keep Matt Stafford upright. What did they do? Draft a bunch of playmakers. And they never really spent any draft picks on the position recently apart from Cherilus.
I guess that bust Cherilus and their older Brandon Albert counterpart Jeff Backus actually weren't so bad after all.
