Below average back-up, only slightly better than Legursky. Not starter material.
I doubt he was drafted to be a starter.
The idea that they are moving Beachum inside, is encouraging in one sense... maybe they are going to move to an athletic zone blocking scheme? I think it would be a great move. The young lines athleticism is clearly going to be it's strong suit.
I can see Beachum playing inside in that type of scheme... in the current scheme? no way.
Guys we need to start working to improve our cap space. Beachum can be a good option for us on the cheap. We have Pouncey, Gilbert, DeCastro, Adams and Foster (hopefully) Beachum will be one of our rotational backups, and we need to find another one like him near the end of the draft.
I didn't think he was awful...
You know.... You would think with all of the high draft picks we have used on the Oline in recent yrs we would have the best one in the NFL... Unfortunately its almost the polar opposite...
Amen to that!!. It makes me believe either the o-line coach sucks or the players are so lacking in conditioning that they get injured all the time or don't play to their ppotential. Maybe a philosophy change is required, and it's not just a matter of drafting the biggest heaviest guys you can find. You still have to be able to bend and move. And Colon is no surprise..perpetually injured.
