post press conference with Al Davis
– Sounds like Davis has prevailed upon Cable to make some adjustments in his strict zone blocking scheme.
“I just felt his excellence in the offensive line was ever in doubt, did well with them, although it was a zone blocking scheme, which he’s talked about improving on, with some power, getting some power in there,” Davis said.
That could mean Cable’s offensive line hire doesn’t necessarily have to be schooled heavily in zone blocking, and it also opens the Raiders up in terms of the draft with offensive linemen of more girth than they currently employ.
Andre Smith is power and would be a beast RT.
Al also said he likes Mario Henderson, he was impressed with his play and it was his draft pick.
