Hopefully. I posted this in the Alex Mack Thread;

Great clips of Mack on Youtube First one of him blocking and does an awesome job of highlighting his movments, second one is an interview.





On a side note, I don't know who of you wrestled, but I did in HS and here is his wrestling record;

wrestled four years in high school and advanced to the state wrestling tournament as a CIF heavyweight champion ... owned a 26-1 record on the mat as a senior.

From what I have saw of the offensive linemen at the Senior Bowl practices on TV and I have tried to watch them all. I think that C/G Max Unger would be a better fit for our Steelers. He can play almost every offensive line position according to Mike Mayock and Co. I think he would serve us better at this point and from what I have seen during their practices also is that DT B J Raji has just dominated Alex Mack.

Not true. Max Unger looks like a boy among men.

Raji has dominated just about everybody. Mack is the only one that has contained him. Unger is weak and even Mike Mayock has asked out loud if he can handle the big 3-4 NT's on the NFL Network.

Mayock said "Can he handle a Vince Wilfork?? or is he just a zone block type guy?? Honestly, check out the Oregon bowl game and you will see Max Unger get eaten up by a 265 LB defensive tackle. I watched the Oregon -Cal game earlier this season and Unger consistently got pushed back into the backfield.

Unger is versatile, but not what the Steelers need for a Center. Wood, Mack, Shipley and Luigs are better equipped to handle bit NT's.

I am pulling for us to draft Alex Mack. I haven't watched any Senior Bowl practice but I did listen to Moving the Chains with T-Rock and Pat Kirwan (they were there live) and they said there were very few lineman that could start Year One and Alex was one of them. Mack definitely sounds like he fits the Steelers mold.

I believe that!! He could play LG for a season then take over at center in 2010 from Hartwig.

Mack flat out handled Raji on a couple of occasions...was the only one who could neutralize him.

yeah i don't know why he keeps throwing out the word dominated.....from what i've read, mack one some, and lost some....i credit it more to raji's skill than mack's weakness. ....

Any of you guys see any Wood-Raji matchups??

I saw Brace take a run at Mack, drive him back 2 yards and then Mack re-established his anchor and just stopped Brace in his tracks. Wasnt overly impressed with Brace, but he is a load to handle.
