Who's really on the bubble?
“If you’re going to make a move it’s going to happen,” said head coach Mike Tomlin. “There are no new surprises, speed of the game, environmental things and so forth. If somebody’s going to make a substantial move it’s going to happen this week.”
Which makes us wonder: Which players are really on the bubble?
The depth chart on Steelers.com may or may not be a semi-accurate indicator. Is Bryant Browning really the second-team guard behind David DeCastro?
Mike Adams, who is listed as second-team left tackle, is one of the players we're watching closely. Reports on his performance in camp to date have been mixed. Guy Whimper is listed as second-team right tackle. The options behind Adams and Whimper are rookies: Emmanuel McCray and Wesley Johnson.
If we had to guess, it would be that one of either Adams or Whimper will make it; and one of either McCray or Johnson will make it. One veteran and one rookie; and the ability to play multiple positions may factor into the decision.
