Heard it on the fan on my drive home, per steelers digest. The only question is who's who at RT and LT?  Do they keep Gilbert at LT, put Adams at RT or does Scott still factor in somewhere?  Good news either way.

Interesting.  Hopefully Adams wins a starting spot and they have their young line set for the next 10 years.

So presumingly the line would be

  LT       LG           C          RG           RT
Adams  Colon    Pouncey  DeCastro    Gilbert

Sounds good to me, gives us 4 guys under 24 starting....now if we can keep most of them healthy for most of the season

Doubt they throw Adams in at LT as a rook when Gilbert's got some experience there.  Probably RT, next year they flip.

The only thing that would possibly work against that is having two rooks on the strong-side.  Unless FFS they're keeping Jagoff Scott and putting him in at RT.

The O-line is really coming together nicely.

Hopefully Starks is a quick healer.

Starks starting week 1 would be optimal, IMO.  Cut Scott; hopefully Adams can start mid-season or next year.

Where did I first hear all that stuff about Willie Colon moving to guard?  I can't remember...

Colon at left guard?  Check.

Now who comes in for him when he goes down in the first 2 weeks of the season?  Legursky or Foster, or do they flip DeCastro to the left side and allow Foster to play his natural position?

Again, can't wait to see this group in action.  It's only been...oh, a decade or so, since I've felt that way going into a season.

Colon impressing at guard.

Colon - Pouncey - DDC

That could be a hella interior group...assuming they stay healthy, 'course.
