20. LT Charlie Johnson(notes) – Hasn’t been as consistent as Bushrod, but is more experienced. Don’t think for a second that the Colts really want to let him go.
21. LT Jeremy Trueblood(notes) – Again, it’s not often that capable offensive tackles get to free agency. Like Bushrod and Johnson, Trueblood isn’t an All-Pro, but he’s a good pro.
22. G Davin Joseph(notes) – Hasn’t quite achieved everything expected of him, but he has been a solid player and he’s still young (27). On the offensive line, that’s enough.
26. LT Doug Free(notes) – Like Bushrod, Free is a former fourth-round pick who has turned himself into a solid left tackle, even if he’s simply not that good an athlete for the spot.
34. RT Tyson Clabo(notes) – Not many guys work their way from being undrafted to the practice squad to the Pro Bowl. That said, Clabo is not capable of playing left tackle.
35. G Harvey Dahl(notes) – Like teammate Clabo, Dahl is a former undrafted guy who has made a career for himself. However, right guards are really not that hard to find.
38. RT Sean Locklear(notes) – Another offensive tackle who can’t play the left side, but is reasonably athletic for the right side. He may not be great, but he’ll get paid.
39. LT Matt Light(notes) – Has it really been 10 years of watching Light use his middling skills to become one of the most consistent left tackles in the game? Yes, and he has a few more in him.
40. RT Damien Woody(notes) – This guy is proof that you don’t have to be great to make a lot of money in the NFL.
47. C Olin Kreutz(notes) – He’s only 34, but there’s 13 years of NFL trench play on that body. Kreutz is one tough hombre, but he wants to finish as a Bear.
53. LT Jared Gaither(notes) – The talent is there for him to be better than guys like Bushrod and Trueblood, but a combination of injuries and attitude have gotten in the way.
73. C Chris Spencer(notes) – Pretty good player, overall, but hasn’t lived up to the expectation that went with being a first-round pick.
86. G Deuce Lutui(notes) – If he could keep his weight under control, Lutui could be a great player. However, he’s constantly pushing 400 pounds.
98. G Trai Essex(notes) – One of the many complete mediocre offensive linemen that the Steelers have collected over the past five years. Prototype JAG (“Just A Guy”).
