The 2012 NFL Combine wraps up today in Indianapolis, and we'll be looking at one player from six different positional groups of interest to the Buffalo Bills that stood out this past week. Offensive tackle was a hot topic of conversation for Bills beat reporters last week, but nobody held a candle to USC's Matt Kalil in Indianapolis.

Kalil - widely regarded as the top tackle prospect available this year for months - in no way disappointed at the Combine. He measured over 6'6" and weighed in at 306 pounds, was one of just three offensive linemen to record a sub-5.0 second 40-yard dash, and looked far more polished and technically proficient in positional drills than any of his draft classmates.

Unfortunately for the Bills - who, despite their history of being averse to drafting tackles early since the Mike Williams fiasco, almost couldn't pass up Kalil if they had the shot - it's extraordinarily unlikely he'll be available when the Bills pick at No. 10. Kalil, the younger brother of Carolina three-time Pro Bowl center Ryan Kalil, in all likelihood has now cemented himself as a Top 5 pick.
