    Your ideal Steelers offensive line

    Your perfect offensive line for the Steelers.

    The possibilities are numerous now with the Steelers, Sean Kugler will have his work cut out for him figuring out who to put where. In a perfect world the remaining roster spots are filled with players that step up over and above the competition rather than just winning by default like in past years.

    Ed Bouchette was apparently quoted on ESPN today ( I did not see this ) as saying he thinks the line could look like:

    Mike Adams
    Willie Colon
    Maurkice Pouncey
    David DeCastro
    Marcus Gilbert

    If that were to be true, Colon might actually be able to excel at most feel is a more natural position for him.

    Personally I don't know that Colon could beat out Foster in a battle for the other guard position opposite DeCastro (assuming he starts).

    I could see a scenario where:

    Marcus Gilbert
    David DeCastro
    Maurkice Pouncey
    Ramon Foster
    Mike Adams (if he doesn't start then he takes over for Colon before the end of the season). If Willie were to struggle or get hurt again.

    Colon is better than foster at everything, essentially foster is a poor mans colon

    The best line they could possibly have would be

    Gilbert, Decastro, Pouncey, Colon, Adams

    MAYBE switch adams and gilbert eventually but to start if like gilbert on the left.

    Backup at center is legursky, backup at both guards is chris scott, backup at LT is essex, backup at RT is J.Scott if he makes the team

    Adams , Ryan Lee/ Colon , Pouncey , Decastro , Gilbert

    I say Ryan Lee because he can move and seems to have some real good skills ... and Colon can't stay healthy and i think Ryan Lee will be better then Foster and Legs

    Mike Adams
    Willie Colon
    Maurkice Pouncey
    David DeCastro
    Marcus Gilbert

    This combination really makes me excited for the NFL season... Some serious pedigree on the line, finally.

    Starks, DeCastro, Pouncey, Colon, Gilbert

    Cut Scott. Sign Starks with the money saved from cutting J. Scott. Let Starks start the year at LT while leaving Gibert alone at RT. Move Colon inside and use Adams at the backup tackle position until he is ready to take over at LT.

    This is the line I envisioned after the draft. But I could understand if Colon doesn't make the grade.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    colon is no way suited for LG, RG sure its possibly with his ability to drive block but decastro is too sexy at pulling to have colon with lead feet at LG

    I'd have to go with:

    LT: Gilbert
    LG: DeCastro
    C: Pouncey
    RG: Foster
    RT: Colon

    I don't think Adams is quite ready to start, but you never know. You could switch DeCastro and Foster, but until we know Haley's playbook, I don't know if LG or RG will be the pulling guard. It's going to be a very interesting and exciting training camp to see what combination the Steelers come up with.

    Here's how I see the starting line up at least to start the season:

    LT..Gilbert
    LG..Foster
    C....Pouncey
    RG..DeCastro
    RT..Colon

    Adams will work his way into the lineup and any talk of Colon moving to G Is just that talk at least till I see it happen.
