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

    "Move of Colon to LG paves way fro both #steelers rookie OL to start, Adams at LT, DeCastro at RG"

    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
    Rd 1: Mike Evans - WR
    Rd 2: Kyle Van Noy - ILB/OLB
    Rd 3c: Philip Gaines - CB
    Rd 4: Taylor Hart - DE
    Rd 5: Justin Ellis - DT
    Rd 5c:Xavier Grimble -TE

    Many of us have been suggesting this for years. It makes sense.
    2014 NFL Draft
    1) ​Darqueze Dennard-DB MSU
    2) Jordan Matthews-WR Vandy
    3) Chris Borland-ILB Wisconsin
    4) Caraun Reid, DT Princeton
    5) De'Anthony Thomas-RB Oregon
    5b) Ryan Carrethers-NT Arkansas State
    6) Jeff Janis-WR Saginow Valley State
    6b) Seantrel Henderson, OT MIami
    7) Colt Lyerla -TE Oregon

    The line will be Adams-Colon-Pouncey-DeCastro-Gilbert and I like it.

    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.
    1 Mike Evans WR Texas A&M
    2 Stephen Tuitt DE Notre Dame
    3c Keith McGill CB Utah
    4 Ross Cockrell CB Duke
    5 Jordan Zumwalt ILB UCLA
    5c Anton Exum S Va Tech
    6 Trey Millard FB/TE Oklahoma
    7 Cody Latimer WR Indiana
    7c DeAnthony Thomas RB Oregon
