    Starting to see why DecASStro dropped on the draft. Not looking good at all since the knee. Were did that steelers fan website go were the guy broke down the O-line every week?
    I wonder if Foster is on Adams side to help save Adams in pass blocking?

    They need to overhaul this line. Their best player signed last week. They need to go sifting through every teams practice squads and find out the players that teams with good O lines are trying to hide.

    Next year, we move Pouncey to right guard..DeCastro to left guard, Beachum at right tackle and Adams at left tackle, keep Velasco longer and starting center. Boom.
    R1- T.J. Watt, OLB; Wisconsin
    R2- JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR; USC
    R3- Cameron Sutton, CB; Tennessee
    R3- James Conner, RB; Pittsburgh
    R4- Josh Dobbs, QB; Tennessee
    R5- Brian Allen, CB; Utah
    R6- Colin Holba, LS; Louisville
    R7- Keion Adams, OLB; Western Michigan

    So you still end up with Velasco as your truely only servicable player

    Problem is who goes in for M.Adams, he is just as pitiful as Mr. Gilbert.
    I wish people would/could leave politics out of a Steelers Football Forum.

    It kinda drives me nuts that Adams and Foster looked great last season on the right, so we shuffle them both to the left and instead of having 2 weaknesses, we now have 4.

    Not picking on you flip, but people here throw around words like "great" way too readily when talking about our "prospects". Cam Heyward gets his hand up and the pass hits it; he also happens to touch the QB for a QB pressure--and he played "great". I recall a couple years ago when Hood was still a "prospect", people were fawning all over a supposed great performance (I think it was at the end of his 1st or 2nd season... I think he got a couple sacks or something, which were pure circumstance).

    Adams has never been anything more than serviceable at any point.

    As to the thread, I don't think moving this group of guys does anything (e.g. Decastro and Foster swapping). This kind of thing has worked, but you have to have a supertalent (e.g. Faneca, Bruce Matthews) who can take over a hole like at Left Tackle, and having a capable replacement for them at their original position. The closest player our line has to that (Pouncey) was fragged by our prized '12 #1 pick.

    Mike Adams is a first year starter at LT so I'll give him some leeway.......but the fact that Marcus Gilbert couldn't win the LT job in his 3rd season says a lot.
