There are 5 starters (obviously) and usually 2 active gameday backups (usually utility guys who can play multiple positions...a C/G and G/T for instance), which would leave a couple of o-linemen amongst our gameday inactives.

I agree with what philly wrote earlier about the probable OL on the 53 man roster:

Starters:

Pouncey
DeCastro
Foster
Adams
Gilbert

Gameday backups:

Beachum
Whimper

On the 53 man roster, but usually inactive until injuries strike:

Malecki
Embernate

On the practice squad:

Long
Golic
I think the top 6 are set, but beyond that is wide open competition. I'm still not sold on Foster being the perfect fit at G. I wonder if Beachum could do better. I reallylike what I've seen of KB so far. Why can't Foster be the swing backup?

Whimper and beyond - I just have no idea yet. There has to be some open competition at this point because we havent seen enough of these guys.
