Is The Tackle-Eligible Doomed To Go The Way Of The Dodo?

In order to stem the tide of injuries that engulfed the tight end position during the early portions of the 2013 season, the Pittsburgh Steelers resolved to use their reserve offensive linemen as tackle-eligible ends last year. During the first four games of the season, that role went to Kelvin Beachum, though his tight end days were brief and sporadic. In the first game, he was...

Could the Pittsburgh Steelers go offensive tackle (again) in this year’s draft?

So it’s that time again—time to decide if the Pittsburgh Steelers are content with their offensive line. Especially at the tackle position. In recent drafts the high picks at that position have been Mike Adams and Marcus Gilbert … have they been good enough? Well, cover32 released their Top 10 offensive tackles coming out in this year’s draft and there are some interesting...

Predicting the Steelers Big Board

With such an unusually deep draft class this year I’ve found a lot of people giving a pretty common response when I talk about a particular prospect for the Steelers. “Oh, there’s no way that guy will be there when the Steelers pick at 15.” That’s never a good thing to say in any class really. We heard that plenty when people openly wished that the Steelers could land a...

Could the Pittsburgh Steelers bolster their o-line through the draft?

The Pittsburgh Steelers have taken their fair share of offensive linemen in recent drafts, but is it enough? The notables are guard David Decastro and tackle Mike Adams, but let’s just focus on the guards and centers. Should the Steelers focus on developing them or should they look to any of the players listed in cover32′s official Top 10 Centers and guards coming out in the...

Steelers Seem To Be One Of The ‘Teams To Watch’ This Offseason

By Matthew Marczi There seems to be somewhat of an agreement around the league that the Pittsburgh Steelers will be one of the more interesting teams to follow this offseason. For example, Adam Schein recently listed the Steelers at the top of a list of the nine “most intriguing” teams to watch, above teams such as the Arizona Cardinals and the Philadelphia Eagles. Schein never...

Mike Adams’ Spot Start Offers A Glimmer Of Hope

By Matthew Marczi It’s not often that a fan base holds its breath when damned-near Mr. Irrelevant gets injured, but that’s what Pittsburgh Steelers fans found themselves doing against the Baltimore Ravens when Kelvin Beachum, the team’s starting left tackle and former seventh-round compensatory draft pick, went down with an injured knee.

If Healthy, Beachum Deserves To Start At Left Tackle Over Adams

With Pittsburgh Steelers tackle Kelvin Beachum back practicing fully on Wednesday, there's a good chance he'll be back as the starting left tackle Sunday night against the Cincinnati Bengals and that means Mike Adams will likely return to the sidelines.

Adams gets shot to repair the line

Mike Adams gets a second chance Sunday when he starts at left tackle against the Miami Dolphins. The Steelers can only hope he follows a similar path taken by John Jackson, one of their better left tackles of the past generation. Jackson, too, fell on his face when he first played left tackle as a rookie in 1988. He started a preseason game at New Orleans where linebacker Pat Swilling...

Mike Adams Might Have To Face One Of The Hottest Defensive Ends In The League On Sunday

With Pittsburgh Steelers starting left tackle Kelvin Beachum still sidelined on Wednesday by the left knee sprain that he suffered during the Thanksgiving night loss to the Baltimore Ravens, it's starting to look like Mike Adams might just make his first start Sunday against the Miami Dolphins since he was benched after the Week 4 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

Mike Adams now playing tight end for the Steelers

Even though the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Mike Adams to play left tackle,  they’ve been using him as a tight end. Adams was benched as the Steelers left tackle back in week four when he gave up three sacks against Jared Allen.  Now he seems to be catching on at a new position. “I think that’s a testament to him and his mental toughness to overcome some negativity,...

Steelers Kept Adams Focused On Run-Blocking Against The Bills

By Matthew Marczi Though Mike Adams has not started a game along the offensive line since week four, he has stayed in the mix at tight end by playing nearly 120 snaps over the course of the last four games. Technically, though, he has started three of the past four weeks—at tight end. It is not surprising to see Adams out there so frequently on the first snap of the game, in actuality...

Tight End Reps Keeping Mike Adams In The Loop

By Matthew Marczi Mike Adams should be thanking Levi Brown for being so fragile as to suffer a season-ending injury during pre-game warm ups. Had that not occurred, perhaps Adams would still be spending his Sundays in sweat clothes as he ‘hones his craft’ in practice. That is hyperbole, of course. Given the carousel of injuries that have happened since then, including the season...
