    are they tackles...i don't think so...the issue i see is can you sit with yeatman on your 53 and wait for him to put on good weight to at least get to the 300 lb mark...that could take all season...i don't know...i envision him more as a 3rd tackle in jumbo packages if he was active this year anyways...will be interesting to see how he puts on weight but i think that light he's gonna struggle against legit strength...in the short term at least...if he's got great feet i'm sure that will help

    you didn't say OT in your original post. you just said "lean linemen". anyhow, obviously no, both Steinbach and Scott are guards, even though Steinbach played LT in a pinch if i'm not mistaken. if you want to keep Yeatman on the roster, you're going to have to risk having to play him at a less than ideal weight. he's not going to grow into an OT body in just a couple of weeks. IF you want to keep him around to be solely a tackle eligible. he isn't going to be much more this year as an OT.

    Can someone explain to me why you want an athletic LG but the RG can be a powerful slug. I've been reading this for about 2 years now and been wondering why, basically is incognito a better RG than LG.

    among other things because the LG is usually lining up against the more athletic of the DTs.
