LOS ANGELES -- Considering his decision to come back for his senior year, USC quarterback Matt Barkley didn't seem to let the departure of his All-American left tackle, Matt Kalil, affect his choice about the NFL.
Now that the excitement and anticipation regarding Barkley's return has settled, Trojans coach Lane Kiffin must find a replacement at left tackle to protect the face of his team and prevent his QB from being a cautionary tale.
But who is the man for the job? Who will help anchor arguably one of the best offensive lines in the country next season as well as protect the blindside of a potential Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback?
With Matt Kalil off to the NFL and Matt Barkley returning to school, junior tackle Kevin Graf has to fill the shoes of one Matt while protecting the blind side of the other.
