This is going to be a point of emphasis to keep an eye on as the offseason moves forward. There's no guarantee that Mike Adams will be ready to take over at LT whent he season starts. Even if he is I'm still not exactly thrilled with a rookie protecting Ben's blind side.
I personally would rather keep Gilbert on the LT where he's a more natural fit and stick Adams on the right and see how things go.
Things can and probably will change in the coming months, just because Adams is working out on the left side now doesn't mean he's going to stay there. Maybe he will in the end but who knows.
Left tackle update
What happens if rookie Mike Adams goes through training camp and cannot cut the mustard at left tackle?
Trai Essex, Jonathan Scott (who opened there last season) or Marcus Gilbert?
Gilbert was pegged to be the left tackle this season right up until the Steelers drafted Adams in the second round. Gilbert played left tackle at Florida his final year, and both he and Tomlin have called it his more natural position.
Gilbert started 14 games at right tackle as a rookie after the injury in the opener to Willie Colon.
"I'm naturally the left," said Gilbert, who was put there in his rookie training camp.
"When they moved me over to the right tackle, it took me a week or two to get back in the groove.
"I got the hang of things. It's all about preparation and repetition."
