    Willie Colon

    Per Twitter
    "I've made the transition to Left Guard. I like it. It's just a matter of learning the verbage"

    This move is surprising. Why this sudden change even before Training Camp?

    Steelers fan were saying Colon is an OG in NFL and Steelers O-Line coach never thought so. And now they move him to LG. Also shouldn't LG be more atheletic? Willie Colon is naturally fit for RG position. A mauler.

    Steelers o-line:
    Gilbert-Colon-Pouncey-DeCastro-J Scott/Mike Adams

    My Steelers O-line would be:
    Adams-DeCastro-Pouncey-Colon-Gilbert
    Steelers Draft 2015
    Rd 1: Devante Parker - WR/ Kevin Johnson - CB
    Rd 2: Danielle Hunter -OLB
    Rd 3: Steven Nelson - CB
    Rd 4: Derron Smith - S
    Rd 5: Henry Anderson - DE
    Rd 6: Wes Saxton - TE
    Rd 7: Deon Simon - DT

    Many of us have been suggesting this for years. It makes sense.

    A rookie left tackle is quite a risk, imho (especially when he was inconsistent in college). Hopefully, it works out...or Ben may have a short season.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.
