    Well, it "WAS" his job to have either Gilbert or Adams "prepared" to play LT. They had to jettison the Gilbert at LT idea in training camp and Adams didn't pan out there this year either (being nice). Forcing them to trade for Brown and luck into Beachum after Brown was hurt warming up for his first game in a Steelers uniform. I think maybe the failure to develop Adams and Gilbert did him in.

    I think credit to the OL getting better with all the injuries falls on Shaun Sarrett. I think maybe they like what he did & they will promote Sarrett to OL coach. Who knows...Maybe Tunch is ready!

    You can also thank Matt Spaeth for helping out the OL in blocking once he came back...

    Although Le'Veon Bell this year was more impressive than Jon Dwyer and Ike Redman last year, the OL wasn't opening up any better holes for him.

    Although Ben took less sacks as the year went on, that may have been primarily a function of running more no huddle and getting the ball out of his hands quicker.

    Adams was a disaster at LT (ended up being okay as a tackle-eligible 6th OL/TE), Beachum was serviceable there.
    Foster was serviceable at LG.
    After Pouncey went down, Velasco was better than many of us expected (I figured he'd be a below average starter, but he was actually an above average starter) and Wallace was better than many of us expected to a lesser extent (I figured he'd be way below average, but he was only slightly below average).
    DeCastro was a Pro Bowl candidate in his first real as a starter after what amounted to essentially a medical redshirt rookie sesason.
    Gilbert was serviceable at RT.


    Final Ruthless Mock:
    1.22 CB Marcus Peters, 6'0" 197 lbs., Washington
    2.56 FS Damarious Randall, 5'11" 196 lbs., Arizona State
    3.87 TE Clive Walford, 6'4" 251 lbs., Miami
    4.121 DE Henry Anderson, 6'6" 294 lbs., Stanford
    5.160 WR Titus Davis, 6'1" 196 lbs., Central Michigan
    6.199 OLB Kyle Emanuel, 6'3" 255 lbs., North Dakota State
    6.212c OLB Max Valles, 6'5" 251 lbs., Virginia
    7.239 RB John Crockett, 6'0" 217 lbs., North Dakota State
