Steelers 2013 Rookie Camp: Mike Golic Jr. Strictly Being Worked At Right Tackle
According to Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review on Twitter, undrafted rookie free agents Mike Farrell and Mike Golic Jr. strictly played left and right tackle respectively during the rookie camp this weekend.
With Farrell, that\’s not a surprise as he started at right and left tackle last season for Penn State. Golic Jr., however, is a different story as he mostly played right guard and some center while at Notre Dame. The Steelers are likely looking at his versatility and also might be short on tackle bodies in addition.
It will be interesting to see if Golic Jr. receives reps during the OTA sessions at the guard spots, because in my opinion, he is a bit undersized to play tackle and doesn\’t have the footwork to play outside on the edge. In my initial 53 man roster prediction, I have Golic Jr. making it as a reserve guard that can play center in a pinch.
Dan Pompei recently named Golic Jr. as one of his Best Undrafted Players following the 2013 NFL Draft.
