    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....

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

    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.

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

    2) Levi Brown is also a turd.
