    Marcus Cannon

    Anybody watching the combine?

    Nobody can seem to agree on where this guy should go .. BUT after watching the combine it is clear that a) he carries 360 very well b) needs to move to guard ..

    the limited tape i have seen is good .. i wonder if this guy is a realistic target for us or if someone is going to reach ?

    Rodney Hudson looked good, he would be a #63 range pick right..

    Sherrod at 31

    huson is a tough call .. some see him at center and there is the weight thing .. he looked like he could carry the weight he put on pretty easily .. he has great feet and technique though

    I am so afraid of these big fat offensive linemen. While he may be strong and fast enough to carry the weight now, will he still be able to move out of his own way three to five years down the road? I just notice with Kemoeatu that he appears to have the knowledge of how to play, he just is not athletic enough to execute. I would rather see the Steelers load up on guys Pouncey's size, maybe a little larger. These 360 pound behemoths concern me.

    i understand what you are saying, but I don't have the same concern .. cannon is pretty smooth .. as for kemo, i think he is a net-positive for the team and his issues are more mental than physical btw

    Cool
    If I'm not mistaken, Cannon can play guard as well as tackle. Dude's a road grader and would be an auto-upgrade to the running game, plus he only allowed like...half a sack in his entire college career, so...upgrade in the passing game too.

    you got to wonder too, if these 360 pounds offensive linemen from college could handle the workload of an 18 games season. That is really pushing the body to upper limits. I don't think I could handle that.
