Rick Spielman: Matt Kalil ‘is going to be a heck of a left tackle in this league’

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman held his midseason news conference with Vikings beat writers on Tuesday morning; he quickly made it clear there would be no updates on Adrian Peterson’s status, but Spielman did spend some time defending the player whom he selected with the Vikings’ highest draft pick since 1985: Matt Kalil.

The left tackle has been a frequent target of fans and reporters for his struggles in pass protection this season, and Pro Football Focus currently has Kalil ranked as the third-worst pass-blocking tackle in the league.
