Brian -

Mid-thigh. This is the point at which you should be reaching as much knee extension as you'll get prior to the scoop occurring (i.e. there will be only a slight knee bend at this point). If you're starting lifts from just above the knee or at the knee, you should not be in a position that resembles an RDL at the same point - you need to have more bend the knees and a more upright posture.
