THE SCOUT'S NOTEBOOK

<>A QUICK PREVIEW OF THE 2009 DRAFT
by Colin Lindsay

September 2, 2008: The consensus around the NFL was that the 2008 draft was a relatively strong class. And that was borne out when a relatively large percentage of this year

Cleveland:  The only NFL city to never play in, or host, a Superbowl.  That bears repeating.

While there is plenty of depth along the interior offensive line, the OTs could still dominate the very early going at the upcoming draft. Bama

No position could be more impacted at the 2009 draft by an infusion of underclassmen than DE. Indeed, a case can be made that DE could be the position of choice at the upcoming draft if all or most of a strong junior class including George Selvie of South Florida, Penn State

Another TE is clearly the pick here.

Early early projections have the Steelers focusing on Alex Mack, center from Cal.  Sounds to me like it could be a good match for the Steelers if the kid is all he's cracked up to be.  Need to keep the tradition of great centers alive and get an anchor on that o-line.

From the site posted above:

Offensive Tackles
1. Michael Oher, Mississippi
2. Eugene Monroe, Virginia
3. Jason Smith, Baylor
4. Jamon Meredith, South Carolina
5. Phil Loadholt, Oklahoma

Offensive Guards
1. Duke Robinson, Oklahoma
2. Trevor Canfield, Cincinnati
3. Ray Feinga, BYU
4. Kraig Urbik, Wisconsin
5. Herman Johnson, LSU

Centers
1. Alex Mack, California
2. Max Unger, Oregon
3. Jonathan Luigs, Arkansas
4. Antoine Caldwell, Alabama
5. A.Q. Shipley, Penn State

Seems like the focus would be on the OTs and there's some agreement between the two sources.  C'mon Mr. Kevin Coal-bear and FIX THIS OL!

Meanwhile, Tomlin can FIRE BRUCE ARIANS!

Should be all fixed for '09.

First and foremost, we need better tackles on BOTH sides.

Colon, maybe he can be a reclamation project at OG.  He's getting false starts because on the edge, he gets beat like a lyin' ass ho.  LT is a huge question mark, obviously.  Starks, you big fucking tub of shit, get the fuck out of my sight.

Be nice to solidify the IOL, but frankly it's not priority one any more.  Stapleton is actually playing well, Hartwig and Kemo well enough.

Time to bust open that wallet and fork over some cay-sh for a FA LT.
