Andre Smith Not a For Sure for the Starting Job in 2010

Bengals.com says that despite being a first-round pick, Andre Smith isn’t a for sure for a starting job next season:

Offensive line coach Paul Alexander isn’t saying for sure that the 340-pound Andre Smith is the 2010 starter and he indicated that the coaches are intrigued enough with the rotations they used at some spots. But he also liked what he saw at the end of the season when Smith was getting more and more of the snaps in his shuffle with Dennis Roland. All signs are pointing to Smith and left tackle Andrew Whitworth being the bookends for at least the next couple of years. “I’ve got to look at the cutups and we have to sort through who is going to be where,” Alexander said. “Andre is going to be a good player. He had a high percentage of ‘Wow blocks.’ He had some of the best pancakes I’ve ever seen. And Bobbie Williams is still one of the few guys in the league who can line up and blow a guy off the line of scrimmage at the point of attack.”
