Mandatory Monday: Lost Highways

Fans of Walkthrough will enjoy my notes from the road, I hope: a mix of observations about prospects, weird drills, and misadventures on the Lincoln Highway.

Nothing earth-shattering, but I wasn't expecting anything like that. I loved the part about Sanchez simulating being tackled when nobody was near him. I wouldn't be surprised to see Alan Baxter, the Steelers OLB prospect, turn into the next James Harrison, and he's probably right in that the Steelers are one of the few teams with the right defense and experience that could mold him into a NFL player. Still an enjoyable read along with a friendly reminder to never travel any long distance across the Appalachians (and associated ranges) unless you are taking a four-lane highway.

One last thing: Bourbanis is spelled Bourbonnais. I have no idea why I knew that. Probably one-too-many training camp diaries.

"Stack of trashcans" is the new "hole in zone"!
