    Lightbulb Potential Steelers Offensive Line for 2012

    In one of the interviews that Kevin Colbert has been doing recently he was asked about Marcus Gilbert moving to LT. He said it could happen but it’s Tomlin’s decision; Gilbert on the left side and Willie Colon on right. That obviously depends on how the draft goes, what happens with Max Starks, etc. It got me thinking though on how the line could potentially look for the Steelers next year.

    Marcus Gilbert - LT
    Cordy Glenn or Kelechi Osemele - LG
    Maurkice Pouncey – Center
    Ramon Foster – LG
    Willie Colon – RT

    I would love to say that Gilbert stays at RT, Starks comes back at LT and they draft Glenn or Osemele for Guard but Starks being ready to start next year, coming off that ACL, isn’t exactly a given.

    or how about this one..

    Marcus Gilbert – LT
    Ramon Foster – LG
    Maurkice Pouncey – Center
    Willie Colon – RG
    Mike Adams - RT

    He wouldnt be a good left guard, but on the right hed probably be great.

    I could put together a dozen of these

    Mike Adams-Brandon Washington-Pouncey-Colon-Gilbert

    Gilbert-Cordy Glenn-Pouncey-Foster-Colon

    Gilbert-Pouncey-Peter Konz-Foster-Colon

    Gilbert-Glenn-Pouncey-Zeitler-Colon

    Jonathan Scott-Trai Essex-Pouncey-Legursky-Gilbert

    Ummm NO!! LOL. I don't want parts of Scott on the left side ever again. I'm ok with him on the right side as a backup, I think he actually did ok there last season in spot duty.

    Legursky was terrible at RG, remember the beginning of the year when he started for Foster? He was adequate on the left side though.

    Last year before he was hurt (again) the FO stated they would not move Colons position, so might as well pencil him @ RT

    Does anyone like Evan Mathis he was with Philly and is a FA? He's 30 so he'd be a stop gap guy. And just to rub people raw, How about Kraig Urbik? Hell they made a mistakes letting him go.
    Heres a link of FA Guards

    As for Colon, With a full OTA I think he'd get back to form and I'd try him out at RG. However if we get rid of J.Scott and his2+ mil we might need to keep Colon at tackle.
