not even close.
Gotta wonder if Adams is going to have his ass ridden by Tomlin, Colbert & Kugler early & often- Chadman is betting he will. If that is the case- you watch him develop quickly (so long as his head is on right). Gilbert is unproven at LT, and Jon Scott is Option 2, so the thought of Adams starting is not without merit.
DeCastro is almost a walk-up certainty to start though.
Adams, DeCastro, Pouncey, Colon, Gilbert...from weakness to strength in 3 years- go figure.

adams wont be starting at least until his first drug suspension is over
He comes into the NFL suspended already??

"I hate him. Everybody says I'm supposed to be polite when I talk to you all, but I hate him..." "He talks too much, he doesn't make sense, he's fat, he's sloppy, he acts like he's the best thing since sliced bread. He's ugly, he stinks, his mouth stinks, his breath stinks, and basically his soul stinks, too.
"Not too many people have personalities like that and survive in life. I don't know how he does it."

Any body have the heights and weights of the line. We now at least have one of the bigger lines. Athletisism is not too shabby either. Some weightroom and endurance training and we may be able to impose our will in the 4th quarter when we would obviously show run and still move the pile.
I'm changing my original OL to this:
Smith, Foster, Pouncey, DeCastro, Gilbert
Leave Smith at LT, where he played last season at OSU. Yeah he's never played LT in the NFL, but neither has Gilbert, and they were going to move him there.
Leave Gilbert at RT, where he played last season for us.
Leave DeCastro at RG, where he played last season for Stanford.
No moving around, no learning new sides or positions. Leave them where they were last season, wherever they played, and just get to work.
Use Colon as the swing-man for both OT positions, or I could see Starks coming back also.
I like your general idea, but who the heck is Smith?
