If Luigs or Mack are available in the 2nd, it would be a good investment imo... McClure has been an incumbent starter with every coaching staff we have had, but i just think he is to 'weak' to succeed in a run heavy offense... Most good DT's breeze past McClure and blow the play up in the backfield, but in his defense, he hasnt rally had probowl OG's around him either...

Either way, he is getting up there in age and 2009 should be the year to replace him with the talent in that draft... Luigs is probably the ahead on my draft board, but getting either would be a good move...

I really like this kid, but the way I hear the coaching staff talk about McClure makes me think that Center is never going to be a priority :(. I actually think depending on how Dahl/Clabo plays at RG we will use a high pick next year on a Guard. Personally I like Urbik out of Wisconsin in the 3rd round.
