Ryan Kalil knows what it takes to win championships, having won two national titles with USC not long ago. So I guess that means we should believe Carolina's three-time Pro Bowl center when he says that the Panthers will be this season's Super Bowl champions. This wasn't just a quick thought that ran through his head one day or something he just happened to mention to a few teammates while working out. Kalil actually took out a full-page ad in Wednesday's Charlotte (N.C.) Observer that declares: "CAROLINA PANTHERS - SUPER BOWL XLVII CHAMPIONS!"

No. 4 Minnesota Vikings: T Matt Kalil, USC - - The younger brother of Carolina's Ryan Kalil, the highest-paid center in the NFL, Matt is widely viewed as the top tackle in the draft. He initially backed up Tyron Smith at right tackle, then, as a sophomore, beat out Smith for the vacancy at left tackle. Kalil has a large collection of remote-controlled cars that he raced this off-season when he wasn't working out for the draft. Comment: Christian Ponder was sacked 30 times in 10 starts and the Vikings surrendered 49 sacks overall.

With Mike Williams absent again and freshman Dwayne Jarrett sidelined because of a groin strain, receiver William Buchanon on Thursday continued his bid to become a prominent piece of USC's offense. Buchanon, a 6-foot-3, 190-pound redshirt junior, was switched from receiver to cornerback in 2002 and started three games. He was moved back to receiver after the start of last season but did not make a catch. Since training camp began, however, he has been perhaps the most effective deep threat.
