    He would be better on the interior. Hes a bit tall, but so is Boone and its worked out well for him

    I love how, after a really really dumb "guess".... you actually prove that it's based on nothing by using Alex Boone as your reference...

    "look, that guy is roughly the same size, and he was able to do it"

    lolz

    maybe you should compare their abilities?

    lol at you being extra annoying today

    Im talking about salvaging his career, not becoming a pro bowler. Hes tall, which would be his biggest problem inside but he can run block and he is pretty mobile.

    Hes got a weak punch in pass blocking, hes slow to react, and he cant sustain a block (his biggest problem)

    Wasnt really comparing him and boone as players, just you dont see many 6-8 guards. I can only really think of Boone and Ogden that played guard successfully at that height because it leads to leverage problems. Im sure theres more than those two though

    I think he can get better, but I am now officially concerned he might be tony hills 2.0. Glad to hear Gilbert is looking good though. Heyward, Gilbert, and Allen might actually make a decent class for 2011

    If the Westley Johnson, or Guy Whimper or the would can show anything during the pre-seasons games. I would let him go on the final cut-down day.

    The one thing you hear fairly regularly is that he has feet of stone. This shows up in his pass blocking and is the kiss of death for a tackle. It's less of an issue in run blocking so they may as well give him some reps at guard, what's there to lose?.

    I was really wrong on this pick. I thought the Steelers had gotten two first round picks with this guy and DeCastro in the same draft. Boy was I out in left field on this one. Feet of stone is a good description. He was pretty well hyped as a first rounder coming out of Ohio State. It's to bad it hasn't worked out to this point. I don't think you'll see him moving inside to play guard. Just seems that really tall guards get shoved around a lot. Oh well, I was pumped about him being picked for a while. Maybe Munchak can help him.

    Ryan Lee is 6-3, 290-pounds and officially in his first NFL season out of Furman. Originally signed by Pittsburgh as an undrafted free agent in 2012, Lee spent part of his rookie season on the practice squads of the Steelers and Saints. He spent training camp with St. Louis last year before being waived during final roster cuts.
