    Is Beachum a Legit starter?

    What are your thoughts about Beachum? Theres been some grumblings about moving him inside to Guard... Either way is this guy ready to be an everyday guy?

    If the Steelers were serious when they said they wanted to make protecting Ben a priority, then hell no, he's not a starter.

    The Steelers offensive line will change dramatically for 2013.
    Three regular starters likely won't return and all three players who took turns starting at right tackle should start at separate positions.
    There is a caveat to all of this, of course: Provided they all stay healthy.
    Look for Max Starks and Ramon Foster to leave in free agency and Willie Colon to be released. Colon's knee injury that placed him on injured reserve for the third season in a row was the last straw. The Steelers want to move on, and they believe they have the right man to replace him.
    They drafted Kelvin Beachum -- their fourth and final pick in the seventh round last year -- to play guard, even though he started at tackle for all 52 games of his four years at SMU. When Marcus Gilbert and Mike Adams were shelved by injuries after starting at right tackle, the Steelers turned to Beachum. He started the final five games and did a nice job. It helped to convince them he can start at guard.
    They will turn right tackle over to Adams. Gilbert will start at left tackle. There was a time many assumed Adams would play left tackle, but he is a more natural right tackle, a better run blocker, and Gilbert's more natural position is left tackle.
    David DeCastro will take over at right guard as he did at the end of the season when he became healthy. And, of course, there is three-time Pro Bowl center Maurkice Pouncey.
    Their backups are to be determined because at the moment only John Malecki is under contract from their season-ending roster.
    That, ladies and gents, is your 2013 Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line. Check back for medical updates.

    I think Beachum will make an OK guard ... and can backup Tackle ... a good player to have on the line ... not to sold on his starting value ...

    Looks like they'll be doing all their running to the right side lol

    I think this definitely means that if Warmack is available at 17, and nobody else fell ... I think they'll draft him

    I think Beachum was a great pick in the 7th round and should be a very good backup and spot starter at T for years to come. We need more picks like him later in the draft.

    I hope he's picked way ahead of us. We desperately need help on the D, OLB, MILB, S and even NT, and I don't want them to be tempted to spend yet another first round pick on the line (that would be 6 in a row.)

    I am tired of "projects" on the O-Line, which Beachum would definitely be.

    That said, although we have a lot of "options", most are pi$$ poor and he may be the best one. Sigh...
