According to Bob Labriola of Steelers.com, Kevin Beachum is expected to be the Steelers left tackle in 2014.
He’s the starting left tackle going into 2014, and because Beachum is a diligent worker who wants to be great there’s strong evidence to suggest he’ll be the starting left tackle beyond 2014 as well. But that doesn’t mean he can just show up and be handed the job. Said Coach Mike Tomlin, “He did a very good job of representing what he’s capable of, but I’ll expect him to continue to improve. I will not allow him to have an opportunity to exhale or seek comfort in regards to that. He’s got a big offseason and training camp ahead of him, but he’s in pretty decent position from that regard.”
I’m sure with Mike Munchak now as the Steelers offensive line coach, Beachum will be prepared to protect Ben Roethlisberger’s blind side.
