the steelers just seem to be afraid to start a rookie at any position. hell, cowher would probably STILL be grooming big ben, had maddox stayed healthy.

im not complaining. our system is proven. just sayin though...
RT is an easier position to come in and start than LT. Loadholt was a guy that I liked a lot because of his size, experience and other highschool sports background(basketball and track) showed he is an athlete for a big man.

He's gonna be a good RT, that may have the ability to play LT if he drops some lbs and improves his technique.
