Default Chris Kemoeatu taking over

How good do you think that Chris Kemoeatu will become? The offensive line would seem to be the area the Steelers should be most concerned with and replacing Faneca obviously isn't going to be easy. That said, there are a lot of people, including the Steelers O-Line coach, that believe Kemoeatu is going to be pretty darned good.

Kemo will be pretty damn good IMO

He is big, strong and has a mean streak.

only negatives i see is he is not that mobile so dont expect to see him pulling down the line like Faneca did

Well...

That was a nice positive article. It is good to know that the grades are based not on spring training, but on camp...when they are actually in pads.

he may have his mental mistakes here and there, but I think he may actually be a better run blocker and pass protector than faneca the last couple of years.

we keep hearing about his strength and aggressiveness, I can't wait to see it on the field!

I agree with you. Thats why I think that he would be a better fit at the right guard in our offense and Simmons could move to the left.

I think he will be a stud as a run blocker, pass protection might need some work. But then again that can be said for most of our O-linemen.

i think he will be good. not great, but just good. he will be a great run blocker, and a above average pass blocker.

Well, since we have been talking him up since he has became a steeler i really think he can be the next big time player in the NFL.

I agree.....I expect him to dominate in the run blocking but be average in pass protection...He doesn't have to be great but just good enough.....Ben is the type of QB that doesn't need a great OL...He just needs a solid OL....In my opinion the OL wasn't solid but average at best...especially in pass protection....probably poor in pass protection....
