    If Decastro starts the season at RG

    Do we keep Legursky at LG or move Foster over to that spot?

    hmmmm, good question. I love Legs, but he leaves a lot to be desired in the passing game. He is pretty good in the run game tho. I think Foster is better when it comes to overall, but just because of Legs weakness in pass protection.

    I think that Legursky fits better as a swing backup on gamebody, and Foster's size is a nice compliment next to Pouncey. I'd lean towards Foster as the starter.

    Yes, Legs moves to where he belongs as a backup to multiple spots. But don't worry, he'll still be getting pay checks for years.

    Adams/Foster/Pouncey/DeCastro/Gilbert

    Give them their playbooks, and get out of their way.

    Yeah, let's feed Adams and his entitled, laid-back attitude. They need to treat this guy like he's an undrafted FA. Any PT he gets, he has to work for. Handing him the starting job would only ensure that he fall right back into his, "I can smoke dope a couple weeks before the Combine" mentality.

    As said, the line I think is best for 2012 is:
    Colon (hopefully he holds up)
    DeCastro
    Pouncey
    Foster
    Gilbert

    BTW, I know they would never do this, but would putting Legs at C change anyone's opinion?
    Colon
    DeCastro
    Legursky
    Pouncey
    Gilbert

    Why? He's played one half of football in 2 years. Keep him as the backup/swingman at OT. Keep Lekursky as the backup for center and guard.

    I like Foster, he does a lot of extra work that you only see when you re-watch games.

    Buchette in the Post-Gazette alluded that this very well could be the line next year...

    Adams-Colon-Pouncey-DeCastro-Gilbert

    But my thing is this, Ramon Foster has been pretty descent. Why wont he get better with better O-lineman around him?

    Steelers O-line coach (Kugler), said he preverse players to play their natural position and not moving players around. So with that said why put Colon in at guard?

    I would prefer...

    Adams--DeCastro--Pouncey--Foster--Gilbert
    Steelers 2014 Draft

    1-Darqueze Dennard CB Michigan State
    2-Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt
    3-Jordan Tripp ILB/OLB Montana
    4-Christian Jones ILB Florida State
    5-Brent Urban DE Virginia
    5-Michael Schofield OG/OT Michigan
    6-Kadeem Edwards OG Tennessee State
    6-Ben Gardner DE Stanford
    7-Aaron Colvin CB Oklahoma
