    size/bulk is over rated. as long as they are not considered undersized, i'll take strength, smarts and athleticism over them any day

    Nope. Its first strike.

    Second strike and he gets 4 games. 3rd strike and gets a season.

    Mike Admas should be available to play from Day-1.

    It's now Mike Admas-Smith-Adams....

    For such a simple name- Mike Adams, so many ways of spelling it...and yet we can recite Polamalu backwards..

    I'd imagine that they'll try to work out each of the top 7 OL that we expect to be active on gamedays at multiple positions in camp (except for Pouncey). I could see DeCastro getting time at both RG and LG in Latrobe, Adams getting time at LT and RT, Legursky at LG and C, Colon at RT and RG, Gilbert at LT and LG, and Foster at RG and RT (or something like that).

    Early on in camp, I'd imagine that they'd start out with the presumed pre-draft starting OL (so it doesn't appear that they are handing any of the rookies anything, even though we all know DeCastro will be a starter from day one):

    1st team OL at camp: Gilbert-Legursky-Pouncey-Foster-Colon

    Then we could insert the rooks at their regular college positions, while shuffling the other pieces around them:

    2nd team OL at camp: Adams-Gilbert-Legursky-DeCastro-Foster

    For the 3rd team OL in camp, move the rooks to new positions, try Colon at guard finally, and add in a couple of back-up types:

    3rd team OL at camp: J. Scott-DeCastro-Malecki-Colon-Adams

    Then they can start giving the others like Chris Scott, Trai Essex, Trevis Turner, Kelvin Beachum, etc, some playing time as well in the 4th and 5th team OL in practices.


    I think they team will ultimately want to be able to field a starting lineup that has both rookies in their usual spots, and knowing what I know of our coaching staff, I think they still prefer Colon at RT if healthy. I'd guess they'll hope for this:

    Adams-Gilbert-Pouncey-DeCastro-Colon (Legursky and Foster as gameday backups; if something happens to either tackle, then move Gilbert to tackle)

    But they might be worried about starting two rookies on the OL at once, or possibly about giving Adams a sense of entitlement by starting him from day one, so they may start out the season in this formation instead:

    Gilbert-Foster-Pouncey-DeCastro-Colon (Legursky and Adams as game-day backups).

    Usually, you would like the strength of your OL to be protecting your QB's blind side, which is not happening here, but you can't have everything. If Gilbert struggles with Elvis Dumervil, Quinton Coples, and LaMarr Houston in the first 3 weeks, perhaps they would make the move to Adams during our week 4 bye).

    Since Colon has been cleared to play, i think the team will open with the following starters at OL

    Gilbert - Foster - Pouncey - DeCastro - Colon

    I think Crash is most likely referring to Marvel Smith's younger pot-smoking twin brother Mike Adams...

    Agreed......to start the season anyways.

    By the end of the season put Smith-Adams at RT and Colon on IR.

    Confused talent can look alot worse than inferior talent. I also think Adams learns a bit from the bench and spot duty. Maybe he takes over later in the year.
