    Wow. That's actually kind of a surprise to me. I had the Phins in one of our mocks and had read similar things about his size, but I thought they were going to give him a shot at Guard.

    What surprises me is that The Raiders actually made a deal for a 6th and an undisclosed swap that actually looks solid.

    True. I remember Satele as being a pretty highly touted player in that draft. Was he overrated coming from a system like Hawaii? Sounds like he might have been.

    I remember Satele looking like a possibility with the Texans due to their need at Center....and even to this day Center continues to be a position that has yet to be seriously addressed

    Satele came out with all the ZBS buzz words on his ability and looked to be a good fit in most zone blocking schemes. Sounds like he didn't fit the Parcells mold of a Center and was shipped off to Oakland.
