    Albert would be an excellent pick for the Skins... I wouldn't mind seeing him in a Cowboys uniform, either, let him battle Kyle Kosier for the starting LG job...

    I've seen him play 10 or 12 games, living in the Shenandoah Valley they're on the tube with some regularity... to me, he's a slightly smaller, slightly more agile Justin Blalock...

    I wouldn't want him to move to tackle, he has the prototypical skillset to play guard in the NFL...

    That would be an extraordinary line...

    I think you're probably right... and I admire that you clearly said this was your opinion...

    It is no big secret that I covet this guy. If he were some how available at 22, I could not imagine a better player on the board.

    To me, he makes a lot of sense for us. He's the kind of player that fits Houcks style of line play. I guess I'm just a big believer in building the OL if you want to be great. If he were listed at tackle, right now, he would be the second rated tackle in this draft, just behind Long. He's actually a better LT prospect then Long is. I would like him to be a bit stronger but that will come once he gets into the NFL.

    His 20 yard numbers are as follows:

    6'6" 309 lbs

    40 Yd. 5.17
    20 Yd. 2.96
    10 Yd. 1.71
    Bench 23
    Vert 26
    Broad 9'03"
    20 Yd Shuttle is 4.78
    3-Cone is 7.97


    Here are Jake Long's numbers, the top rated OT in this draft.

    6'7" 313 lbs.

    40 Yd 5.22
    20 Yd 2.97
    10 Yd 1.75
    Bench 37
    Vert 27 1/2
    Broad 8'06"
    Shuttle 4.73
    3- Con 7.44
