    molk is too small for my taste...but he's a technician and a fine football player...that said i'd say zbs is what he needs if he can make it that light in the pants

    Molk is strong as an ox but yeah too small. Wasn't he just over 6' or something?

    I remember Marino complaining about Tim Ruddy being Center because he was 6'2" and Marino was worried about having to bend down to far and not being able to see the field pre snap well enough.

    He actually graded out as the only player among the starters on the Dolphins offensive line last year that had a positive run blocking grade. Where he struggled was in pass protection, allowing 15 QB pressures. Only 2 centers in the league allowed more QB pressures than Pouncey. Pass protection was the aspect that he struggled with the most has a prospect at Florida.

    His athleticism and ability to hit moving targets with precision is what makes him a prototypical left guard. That's typically you're designated puller when you're running power.

    I don't like him at RG because that's typically the guy you leave on an island in pass protection.



    The aspect that a lot of people don't realize is that it's more important to have top notch pass protection by your interior 3 lineman than it is your two offensive tackles. Which is why winning teams aren't burying themselves with bloated contracts and investing top resources into the left tackle position. It doesn't matter how good your 2 tackles are if your interior 3 are allowing pressure up the middle.

    The elite quarterbacks will step up into the pocket and avoid pressure off the edge allowed by the offensive tackles. They can't step up into the pocket if the pressure is coming up the middle. There's not a quarterback in the league that can deal with pressure up the middle.

    It's critical to have your interior 3 offensive lineman be solid in pass protection.
    i don't disagree...i just don't see them doing it...15 pressures really??? i don't recall that many...i recall him being late to recognize some things on delay type stuff etc but i chalked that up to youth and lack of time at center...i'm with you his ability to move and hit a moving target is very impressive

    anything that gets incog out of left guard i'm always game for...ha ha...i think pouncey was the best player on our oline last year...most consistent anyways in my book

    He measured a shade over 6'1" at the combine and weighed in at 298 lbs. Not sure what he played at though. 41 reps on the bench is outstanding...that was the first time I heard of him was after he got 41 reps at the combine.

    If Miami does take a center I don't see it until later in the draft and they take someone like Chris Anzevino who they've been doing their homework on. Kids also working out with former pro-bowler LeCharles Bentley

    So that premise, Would anyone be upset with a draft of:
    1 deCastro OG
    2 Konz C
    3 Hosley CB
    3 Irvin OLB
    4 Mosley OT
    5 Hilton WR
    6 J. Wright or J. Fuller WR
    7 TE
