By the way ...

Note to Jim Wexell: Get over your infatuation with Gosder Cherilus.

If Gosder Cherilus was so good, he wouldn't have been stuck at RIGHT tackle until his senior season. He would have been playing at LEFT tackle, which is where college teams put their best OTs.

And when the Boston College coaching staff finally moved Cherilus to left tackle, he struggled mightily. He is a right tackle, and a right tackle only. He has no "position flexibility."

He does not fit Mike Tomlin's criteria for an offensive lineman who can play at multiple spots along the offensive line.

We don't see the Steelers selecting Gosder Cherilus at 1.23.
