A vet-presence for guys like Gilbert or Adams. We have many O-lineman that can play multiple positions. Hopefully, we've paid our dues with the injury bug!

Oh God, hopefully this is just a camp body. But I've got a bad feeling in my stomach here.

It's crap like this that pisses me off when I hear "the standard is the standard."

Steelers Depth Chart: Guy Whimper likely will take over right tackle with Mike Adams out

By Neal Coolong on Jun 2 2013



Whimper was signed to provide depth at tackle, and he played on the right side with the Jaguars in 2012. Second-year OL Kelvin Beachum replaced Adams last season over the last six games of the year, but he was moved inside, where he'll likely stay, considering Adams is expected to recover fully.

Steelers offensive tackle Mike Adams is expected to make a full recovery after being stabbed by alleged robbers Saturday in Pittsburgh. He is said to be out 6-8 weeks, but will be healthy for training camp in late July.

In the meantime, the Steelers have one more OTAs session starting June 3 in Pittsburgh, and a full team minicamp June 11-13. Second-year OT Kelvin Beachum, who replaced Adams over the last six games in the 2012 season, and newly signed OT Guy Whimper, will likely take reps at right tackle in Adams' absence.

Beachum had been taking reps at center in the Steelers' first two OTA sessions, and had worked at guard earlier in the offseason. His versatility is valuable, but they will likely keep Beachum working to learn the guard positions and center unless Adams' injury is more serious than initial reports suggest.

It's an opportunity to truly learn to be a Steelers offensive linemen - replace someone due to injury. It's been the least stable position unit in the NFL over the last few seasons, and while incidents like Adams this weekend cannot be anticipated, the Steelers signed a veteran tackle for this exact scenario.

Whimper did not excel in Jacksonville, to put it mildly, but they did not run an outside zone scheme, as the Steelers are expected to do this season.

What!?! Why is Beachum not going to play RT!?!

I know that they want Beachum to back-up the interior positions, specifically OC... but, Beachum was very good at OT.

Whimper... really? really!?! reeeally!!??!!

Yeah man this a real head scratcher. I usually back up the FO on all personnel moves, but everything I've seen and read about Whimper has been terrible. I sure hope Adams makes a fast recovery.

its OTA's and Training camp. Beachum needs the work inside. In a ZBS, the center needs to make the calls based on the fronts he sees and counts at the LOS. Better he does that than work on his kick slide at RT.
