Would you draft him?

    It's likely the Steelers could draft this player just ahead of us, seeing that they lost Faneca and have a hole at OGuard.

    I know we just signed Jake Scott. But if, for whatever reason, Albert is still available when we draft, do you consider him?

    nope.

    we've had A LOT of success finding guys we can develop to play guard and center.

    however, if we're talking about o-linemen in the first, i might consider jeff otah(OT from Pitt). i don't think he has the feet to play LT but could play RT and is powerful enough to OG.

    but neither would be a smart pick for us, considering our strengths and deficiencies.

    It could make our Offensive line the best in the NFL.

    I would want him in serious consideration if he is available. I'd still look at WR,CB,DE,DT and see if someone we really liked slipped.

    But maybe what would help Vince, Lenwhale, and uh, our receivers, would be a truly dominate offensive line.

    Stewart-Scott-Mawae-B.Albert-Roos..........nice.


    The Stuart Scott Line.

    Yeah since we got Scott we have much more pressing needs.

    I'd rather have Roy Schuening a couple of rounds later.
