Re: Current Steelers offensive line offers insight into the future
Wasn't Beachum struggling mightily at guard in the preseason? I don't know if he's built to be a guard, but I honestly think he'll compete with Adams for that starting RT spot and, at the very least, will force Adams to lose his marshmellow arms and improve quickly. If not, Beachum takes over that spot.
There's going to be some good competition for our line this year. When was the last time we had 4 strong, good tackles that we're all comfortable with when they start? Especially Gilbert and Starks at LT - that might be the battle of Latrobe to watch out for.
Looking to 2013, I hope our line looks something like:
LT - Gilbert
LG - Foster
C - Pouncey
RG - DeCastro
RT - Adams
We can have Starks and Beachum on reserve if one gets injured or struggles.
