Right Guard has been one of the most hotly contested battles in training camp and preseason. From the get go it's been a battle between Ramon Foster, Doug Legursky, Tony Hills, and Chris Scott.
Scott has fallen out of the race lately, and while Foster was solid last year he has been somewhat average this preseason so far. He's a great run blocker but from what we've seen he can get beat in the passing game and has problems recovering.
Right now it's basically between Legursky and Hills. Tony has had a great camp and really started to come on these last 2 weeks in preseason. He's in shape, slimmed down, and is more powerful than ever. I like his quick feet for a guy his size.
Legursky is just your basic all around good lineman. He can play virtually every position on the line and is the best or atleast one of the best utility lineman you'll find anywhere. Right now I could honestly go either way, but I might lean slightly towards Hills just on potential alone. If Legursky does get the job and something happens to another lineman this year, he'll move over to that position and Hills would step right in.
Credit my boy Black@Gold Forever32 for putting this idea into my head, he mentioned Steelers.com has Legursky listed as the starting RG on the depth chart as of now. We'll see how things play out this Thursday vs. the Panthers and when the cuts start coming in. Also Scott Brown of the Tribune Review tweeted:
Doug Legursky is first-team RG on Steelers' updated depth chart.Earlier in day Hills says he thinks decision has been made but offers nothing else.
