they wrote a book and made a movie about michael oher, called "blindside".
he still hasnt been able to master the position.
what makes you think a2nd round rookie with absolutely no practice at the position with nfl starters, and who admittedly loafed his way through the 1st coupla weeks of camp, can do better?
Gilbert played the position in college, practiced there almost exclusively in training camp, and fulfilled that role predominantly in the preseason. He also looked more natural to my eyes at LT.
