    Bottom line is we do a horrible job at evaluating lineman. It dosent mean squat that you use high draft picks on lineman when the guys you pick cant play. I was done with Marcus Gilbert 3 years ago. Yet here we are still waiting for him to develop. How long did we stick with Colon, Gilbert, Starks, Kemo, Essex, etc. These were not Pro Bowl caliber lineman. Hell I loved Starks because he was the best of what we had. He might not even win a job on a bad San Diego line. The guys we trot out there year after year cant even make any other NFL roster. That is the reason Ben gets sacked so often. Its lack of talent at the OL positions.
    Maybe Colbert/Tomlin need to hire someone who can help them better evaluate OL talent.

    just to add to this, when is the last time you heard a steeler OL draftee was good in pass pro?

    too many road grader types(kemo, colon, max, etc etc,) not enough guys with good pass pro skills. they philosophy seems to be "oh, they'll learn to pass block" (even faneca was known more as a great run blocker and a good Pass protector)

    seems to me it would be easier getting someone who is known more for PP and teach him how to block in the run game
