I think it's very hard to pass that up especially in today's pass happy NFL.
Personally I would be more concerned with developing my quarterback than stopping other teams' for a year. We aren't gonna make the playoffs in all likelihood anyway. Protect the quarterback and develop him. Focus on stopping it after. Stopping the other teams' QB does no good if we don't have a quarterback to put up points.
Just my opinion. Kalil just makes too much sense to pass up.
