I believe he played guard for a year at Florida, so he should probably be able to play guard or tackle. The Steelers probably drafted him because of his position flexibility. If Starks and Colon both heal from their injuries, I expect them both to be in Steelers uniforms for a while. In that case, Gilbert could play RG - who is playing there anyway? Or if either Starks or Colon is an injury liability going forward, we have sort of an insurance policy and a future starter once Flozell retires.
