Florida T Marcus Gilbert & FSU G Rodney Hudson Reportedly Will Visit Steelers

Two offensive lineman who played their college ball in the state of Florida will reportedly make pre-draft visits to Pittsburgh as Florida tackle Marcus Gilbert and Florida State guard Rodney Hudson reportedly have visits scheduled to the South Side. Gilbert played both tackle positions for the University of Florida this past season and made 30 career starts for the Gators, including all 13 games in 2010. Hudson was a four-year starter for the Seminoles at guard and projects as a guard/center type at the next level. Gilbert is projected as a 3rd or 4th round pick while Hudson is projected to be drafted sometime in the 2nd round.

    Hudson is far too small to anchor the line, especially vs teams that run the 3-4. HOWEVER- Marcus Gilbert is the next best thing to drafting Mike Pouncey. Hes played 3 seasons with Maurkice (familiarity is very valuable), and lined up at both tackle spots as well as RG. He is Colons replacement. Foster isnt going anywhere.

    I want Marcus Gilbert to team back up with Maurkice and then we can get a nice guard like Mike Huey or Will Rackley,John Moffit.

    I too like Foster and think we need to more Chris k. Perhaps put him on the right or dangle him in the draft if theirs a CBA.
