Colon Confirms He’s Making the Switch from Tackle to Guard for 2012
If your still trying to figure out who is going to be on the Steelers O-line this season, Willie Colon gave some clue today.
The vet says that he will be making a switch from right tackle to the guard spot, freeing up a likely spot for second-round pick Mike Adams.
“I’ve made the transition to left guard. I like it. It’s just a matter of learning the verbiage,” Colon told Mike Prisuta of WDVE-FM in Pittsburgh.
First-round pick David DeCastro will be the other guard, and that puts the starting O-line as one with two rookies (Adams and DeCastro), Colon at the other guard, Maurkice Pouncey at center, and Marcus Gilbert probably as the left tackle.
“My only issue would have been ‘Don’t move me midway through camp,’ ” Colon said.
The Steelers have done their job – now we will see if Colon can do his in 2012.
