Do We Have Too Many RTs?
Not sure what everyone else thinks, but I feel like we have 5 RTs on the OLine in Gilby, Adams, Brown, Beachum, and Foster. And it feels like we've just got guys out of position across the board.
I'm not sure why we couldn't stick with Foster/Adams on the right which seemed to be working last year. DD's pulling seems better suited to the left. I think Beachum/Gilby should be competing with Foster for the RG spot because those 2 have a little more agility/quickness.
And then I'd probably just go with Brown at LT because we've tried almost every other option with limited success.
At the same time, the O has been getting into a bit of a groove and changing so much up at this point would put us back at ground 0.
I've said it before. Too much focus on position flexibility, not enough on making sure a player is the best that he could be at his own position.
Agree. Position flexibility is great for a backup like Beachum (a 7th rounder) or an UDFA (like Foster was).
