Default Week 1 O-line roster prediction

which steelers linemen will be on the official O-line roster for week 1?

no need to specify starters.

mahan(G/C)
hartwig(G/C)
kemo(G)
simmons(G)
stapleton(G)
starks(T)
essex(T)
smith(T)
colon(T/G)



hills will either be cut or placed on the PS. i am thinking he will be cut.

i think legursky could sneak in if the steelers decide to keep 10 linemen. if they choose 9 then he will suffer the same fate as hills.

mods: i apologize if there is a thread(s) similar to this one on the board. i saw a couple of threads dealing with the O-line, but it didn't appear they focused on my particular question.

I agree with 4 out of 5 of your starters, LS.

I think the opening day line will consist of:

Smith - Kemoeatu - Mahan - Simmons - Colon

Yup, that looks about right. I think Hills ends up on P.S..

Mahan, Starks, Essex and Stapleton are quality backups. Stapleton looks to be on the rise.

The Center position has yet to be determined but fyi.....Hartwig is starting Thursday and took all the snaps with Ben in practice yesterday. Leftwich worked with Mahan.

I think they have been starting Mahan to make Hartwig earn the spot by beating out someone rather than being given it.

we shall see, my money's on Hartwig

Honestly I think they either keep 10 and Hills, or they will cut either Stapleton or Mahan and keep HIlls.

Hills is weak and Fred Gibson proved there is no guarantee a 4th rounder makes it, but Smith, Starks, Essex are all UFA's with Colon an RFA at the end of the season. OT depth is weak and Hills should stay.

Big money in some of those "backups". Guess that means we're getting better or just plain overpaid.
I will have to agree with those though. Wasn't Stapleton also listed as backup Center? more added value there.

The money is already allocated, so doesnt factor into the decision. Most likely Starks last season with the team. I too see more upside in Stapleton than Mahan and think if Hartwig is the #1 C, that Stapleton should be retained.

Tough to keep 10 O linemen, 3TE's, 3QB's and a KR specialist though.
