    why is everyone overlooking the fact that the raiders have some serious o-line holes, or is mario henderson doing well?

    I saw Light get beaten late in the year. I don't know if there was an injury factor we never heard about or if he is slipping.

    I thought he was listed at 6'4"....he does have short arms and he hop steppes instead of picking his feet up and down when sliding in pass protection. You can get away with that in Collage, but not the big show.

    As a prospect that was Gallery's calling card.

    Tough mauler and he will go through you...but his 31" arms and slow feet got overlooked by scouts.

    You'd think slow feet wouldn't go overlooked since Mandarich, but some think Jake Long should be the #1 or #2 pick when I think he is a reach at those two spots in the draft.

    He is a very good LT prospect, maybe the best pure LT prospect in this deep draft. I wouldn’t say he is of blue chip quality and is not as versatile as Branden Albert.

    When you say feet, do you mean technique or athletic ability?

    Yeah but Matt Light had a great year. I see no reason to fix something like the Pats OL that isn't broken.

    **** they had 3 pro bowlers.

    yes I think he will move there when Branden Albert is ready to take over LT
    maybe not in 08.

    I don't see any chance a team drafts a guard at No. 7, especially in the Pats pass-heavy offense.
