More Colon to G talk I see. He has never even practiced there for all we know. He has zero experience as a G, is questionable at best as a T, and can't get healthy enough to even get on the field......but he is our starting guard next year.
Hey, if it doesn't pan out then maybe Ziggy could start at guard and move Heyward to LE. Or see if Duce Staley would like to come back and start at guard for us. After a few years retirement he probably has the size of Colon and he already has enough sideline experience as well.
Steelers 2015 Draft???....Go Freak! As in....

It's not too unreasonable to think that Colon might soon be the third best tackle on the roster...If he isn't good enough to start at guard, well, it might be time to see if there's any trade interest, because that's a pretty big salary for a reserve OLman.
I believe the Steelers think more of Colon than do fans. Their actions speak to such.
1.25 CB Eli Apple-DB-tOSU
2.58 SS Vonn Bell-DB tOSU
3.89 DT Javon Hargrave-SC State
4.123 DE-Matt Judon-Grand Valley State
6.220 RB-Tyler Erwin-San Jose State
7.229 WR Geronimo Allison-Ilinois
7.246 QB-Cody Kessler-USC
We all just need to understand that the best 5 guys are going to be determined in camp and the only position where there is any certainty is center. I would love to see what the organization is thinking with Colon. I would practically garantee he will get a look at guard....especially if Adams looks like he is ready to start at either tackle spot.
I like Adams/Colon/Pouncey/DeCastro/Gilbert. I really doesnt matter to me which side Adams starts on. If Adams struggles with the pass rush move him to the right side.
As said, the line I think is best for 2012 is:
Colon (hopefully he holds up)
BTW, I know they would never do this, but would putting Legs at C change anyone's opinion?
