    A player was drafted to play tackle and after a year spent mostly on the bench the coach and GM saying he can play guard. How does it look for u?

    It worked out for Leonard Davis and had Denny Green not stuck him at LT and let him be a Gaurd, things may have turned out differently.

    Ugh. Sounds like Mason Cole all over again. Guy turns 24 before the season and his best characteristic is that he is versatile. (I am probably over-reacting but Tristen Wirfs was staring us in the face.)

    For me the issue is that they are not touting him at any one spot. they don't love him at T but also don't love him at G.

    Agree with your point, doesn't look promising
    We need 2/3 new starters in the offensive line
    C/RG/RT

    Why we should actually expect a relatively high pick drafted by Keim to actually turn out to be solid and playing by his second year is beyond me at this point.

    I echo @Chopper0080 .

    You’re not.

    But hey, at least we drafted the least valuable position on defense. That’s worth something.

    Reading too much into it. Keim is complimenting him. I’m sure he’s in the mix for RT but the Cards aren’t just going to hand it to him.

    The JJ Watt signing tells us that we are in major win now mode which gives me the strong inclination that they will be averse to starting with a RT with no starts.

    I think Gilbert is more likely (if he doesn't retire) or possibly Beachum resigning.

    Don't forget Gilbert is still on the roster so maybe he starts at RT and Jones is the starting RG. Kk and SK were raving about him 2 years ago.

    I'm not expecting this to happen but SK might be .

    This team is far more inclined towards vets. I'm not saying Jones won't be the guy but he'd have to be clearly better than Gilbert to win the job I think.
