Thread: Will Brown Play LT?

    Will Brown Play LT?

    In the long tradition of the board wanting to move people to another position (see Colon, Willie), I can't help but wonder - is Brown being brought in to play LT? Is it possible that Beachum will go to LT with Brown to LG? Is Foster's injury more serious than was reported?

    I don't know how quick Brown is, but I could see him as a massive road grader type at OG.

    I doubt this really happens, but figured I'd throw it out there.

    I would think that they would try Beachum at LT first before bringing a career LT in as a guard. They will be plugging him in and praying at LT.

    i woudl think they would try beachum at GUARD and not make Levi have to go through a position switch...that's probably what you meant...??

    Yeah, what I was trying to say was that if they were moving Beachum then they would have tried it first before making a trade. If they made the trade then he is playing tackle. Now we just have to settle LG and RT...before focusing on LT again very soon.

    If the Steelers are super lucky, Brown will be a huge improvement over Adams, much like Mesko has been over Butler...wait...what....

    We didn't trade for Brown so he could play guard (though that is likely his best position).
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    Guard will be his position next year after we draft a rookie LT.

    Bingo. No way the Steelers pass on this years top LT talent. Good year to be drafting high. 4-5 solid LTs, two I would consider elite.
    1.25 CB Eli Apple-DB-tOSU
    2.58 SS Vonn Bell-DB tOSU
    3.89 DT Javon Hargrave-SC State
    4.123 DE-Matt Judon-Grand Valley State
    6.220 RB-Tyler Erwin-San Jose State
    7.229 WR Geronimo Allison-Ilinois
    7.246 QB-Cody Kessler-USC

    If anything...I am going to think this slammed the door shut on Matthews or Lewan. I'd still prefer Boyd or Watkins from Clemson.
    Round 1, Pick 25 (25): Artie Burns, CB; Miami
    Round 2, Pick 27 (58 ): Sean Davis, S; Maryland
    Round 3, Pick 26 (89): Javon Hargrave, DT; South Carolina State
    Round 4, Pick 25 (123): Jerald Hawkins, OT; LSU
    Round 6, Pick 45 (220) (Compensatory Selection): Travis Feeney, OLB; Washington
    Round 7, Pick 8 (229) (From Giants): DeMarcus Ayers, WR; Houston
    Round 7, Pick 25 (246): Tyler Matakevich, OLB; Temple

    1) We still have another turd of an OT to replace.

    2) Levi Brown is also a turd.
