Sounds like you're trying to scoop way too early. I'd second Jacob's advice of clean deadlifts to above the knee. Only after you get the weight above your knees should you start the scoop.

Don't be impatient and remember that an early scoop will only result in slowing the bar down due to the physical knee barrier (and, if I'm not mistaken, loss or partial loss of the stretch reflex).
