    Well, not off my board. But this draft has too many interesting options to hedge your bets on CK early. I would take him in the 4th at the earliest if there wasn't a better player available. Miami has too many holes to take a guy who may have a limited career. One problem it presents is that teams that may have taken him now will be looking at the same guy Miami is. Really this closes up the top 4 O linemen to Matthews, Robinson, Lewan, Martin, with plenty of teams wanting them before 19. Miami has to hope for a little luck.

    Joel Bitonio on the other hand has skyrocketed up the board to the point that I think he has a shot to play OT in the NFL

    Hopefully, he is NOT anywhere on our draft board.
    He made it to Mayock's mock.

    If he is sitting at 81 and we have not addressed the position yet the kid would be in play. No sooner, I hope. Boy would the torches ignite if his name popped up at 19 now.

    This is just ridiculous. How any of you can watch the tape of Kouandjio and say that he's off your board is laughable. James Andrews, one of the best orthopedic surgeons in the world, said that Kouandjio's knee is fine. Watch the video of his movement skills and actually judge for yourself, especially his lateral movement (see :20 below) and then you can decide what kind of athlete he is and form your own opinion instead of relying on others. He's not athletic, he's a guard for sure, he's a lousy athlete who's off your board- how anyone can watch the game film and actually study what happened in his workout and come to these conclusions is beyond me.

    As to Bitonio, the issue is his talent, body of work and how he showed at the combine- those are the factors that are relevant as to whether he'll be a pro Guard or Tackle, not the latest rumors and trends. Same thing with Ju"wuan James, solid player but people see a couple of rumors in the news and then jump on the "let's take James in the first round" bandwagon". Before the rumors a few days ago- crickets. How very typical.

    In Bitionio I see similar traits as Zack Martin, just not quite on his level. He has power but he's not a road grader like Martin, he has quick feet and lateral movement that are closer to Martin's level. I see him at Tackle, but that's based on watching him play and judging his athletic ability, not the whims of the latest draft rumors. Draft "experts" in the news sending him up or down draft boards in the last days before the draft is of little consequence.

    Kouandjio is a big, solid, powerful, a roadgrader with plenty of lateral quicks for RT and he's nasty:

    Great fit for us at RT, ZBS or not.
