    From Armando's blog:



    Levitre is a guy I've been silently following for quite some time now because he perfectly fits the mold of this regime: Three year starter at Oregon State, very flexible (he mainly played right tackle but also some LT, G and even TE), top notch intangibles and apparently a very bright guy. I've only seen him once so far and he struck me as a prototypcal tackle to guard convert: Very strong, solid technique, generates a great push while run blocking. He's by no means a superb athlete and he seems to lack the lateral agility to play T in the NFL - very evident in 1 on 1 drills at the Senior Bowl - but I actually like him a lot as a guard with quite some flexibility as a backup tackle thrown into the mix. I tend to think of him as a poor man's Max Unger and a guy we, despite Armando being the biggest tool in the shed, might well be interested in with a 2nd or 3rd round selection.

    Left guard and right tackle from what I saw and as he reported on his blog. The one on ones are where I noticed him getting schooled the most though.

    Which is why I specifically refered to them in my original post. Dunno where the someone didn't watch the practice part comes from ... other than that you were referring to Parcells and Ireland who spent quite some time with him after the session according to multiple sources.

    Actually I was making a a light joke referring to Armando....I do not know him but from what I understand he has been known to create more than is really there.

    You do not want to take too much away from these drills, practices and games, and obviously JI and BP know more than you or I, but that does not mean we are not entitled to our opinion...but I have not been real impressed with Levitre myself...particularly these last couple days.

    Levitre's blog only suggests a short informal meeting with the Dolphins....if you pass on the other links I would appreciate it...there are so many out there I miss many of the good ones.

    Levitre looked horrible in practice today, beaten way too many times for my liking.

    I can see the misspelled headline now: "Ireland, Sparano take Levitra at the end of surprising first day."
