Default How Likely is that Adams and Decastro Both Start This Year?

Looks like we got two studs at offensive line. How likely do younthink it is that these two are starting on opening day?

slim to none, DeCastro will start but Mike Adams is going to be given a redshirt year to learn and get in the weight room.

DeCastro from day 1. Adams may take some time, but I expect injury will force him in by mid season.

tomlin and kuglar have both said the best 5 players will be on the field. which leads me to believe they are willing to move guys to different positions. if adams to better at RT then he should take colons position , if colon is better at LG , then he should start over foster.

Before Adams got in trouble, some people had him rated higher than DeCastro in mocks. Skill/Talent wise: They should both be starters from day one.

Nope, even one of the talking heads on NFL Network said something about it earlier when discussing our draft thus far. But you may have to go back as far as before the combine, because after that, Adams' stock dipped a little due to his poor performance.

Edit: And no, I don't listen to everything the NFL Network says

Also. I went back and looked at several pre-combine mock drafts, and a lot of them had Adams going before DeCastro. I'm not saying he's better, i'm just saying talent wise, he should be a starter. Character wise? Not so sure.
