Oakland Raiders head coach Tom Cable stopped by Cal's Pro Day on Wednesday to check out prospect Alex Mack. When Cable was asked about drafting Mack seventh in the NFL draft, the spot behind the Bengals, Cable said, "Not if you need one, that's the bottom line."
Cable went on to "identify" the offensive line as an area for improvement, which could include a left tackle. So Cable knows that the Bengals are looking at a center, hints that they might take a center to force the Bengals hand. Cat and mouse. Silly. Silly. The Bengals wouldn't fall for such a tactic.
There were 50 representatives from thirty teams, including six offensive line coaches at Cal on Wednesday, watching Mack have a sensational workout, writes Gil Brandt.
