    Kiper rates Osemele as #4 OT in 2012 draft

    Nice recognition for Kelechi from Mel Kiper. Just released 2012 draft rankings lists Osemele as the fourth best offensive tackle in the 2012 draft. That's the highest offensive tackle in the Big XII.

    Vikings should probably draft him.

    As often as I could, I would watch him during games last fall. One of the funnest players to watch on our team. He could just dominate guys.

    The Bears DESPERATELY need help on the line. I think KO would be a nice addition. And Jerry Angelo has drafted ISU guys before (Aaron Brant in 2007 I think?)

    I'm not a subscriber, but I'm guessing this is Kiper's SR only early mock, correct?

    Re: Kiper rates Osemele as #4 OT in 2012 draft

    This is why I don't understand some of the talk of KO moving inside next year. Just too talented not to have him at LT. If guard truly is his destiny in the pros, he can always make the transition there, many do.

    I don't know if it's senior's only. Just caught the mention on ESPN's Big XII blog.

    Lions could really use him!

    I thought Osemele was a good OT, but he's going have to really improve... the DE's in the pros are very quick...

    IMO KO underperformed last year (as did the entire line). I hope he has his mojo back for 2011.
