I wish I had played four,” Loadholt, a former junior-college transfer, told The Oklahoman in a phone interview last week. "I progressed a lot from that first to second year at OU. But I still have a lot of room to improve as far as technique. "I’m only going to get better.” Among the teams that appear to share that thinking include Atlanta, Baltimore, Cleveland, Minnesota, Oakland, Pittsburgh and St. Louis, which have all flown him in for a private meeting. With needs at tackle, local reports suggest Buffalo, Chicago and Dallas could also have Loadholt high on their draft boards. "I pretty much have no idea who is going to take me,” Loadholt said. "I’m just excited to see what happens.”
