Anybody can play their rookie year if they HAD to. That's what happened with Ugoh and McNeil and they were top picks at their position. Same happened with faneca and Simmons having to play their rookie seasons because of injury.

I've been around the horn on this topic and wont go on any further, but I'm still disappointed we have not addressed the O line when Ben got sacked 53 times last season and 4 of the Steelers top 7 linemen's contracts end this season.
