He will get practice snaps at guard due to his athleticism and knowledge of the offense. He isn't a guard though.
Solder is still rounding into shape but I think the peak will be short. I don't envision him being able to last the whole season so Peart better be ready.
We knew Peart would have his ups and downs. Not playing right at all in Washington was the down. Hopefully by mid-year he is playing a lot and we can determine if he is the guy moving forward or not. It is way too early to right him off.
To answer the question though... What I was not happy with regarding Fleming is he seemed to have a lot of mental errors. Solder hopefully will be better than that but there will be times physically where he just can't get it done.
. I think he's probably best suited at left tackle than anywhere else, but that's just me. The reps at guard are more to do with the fact there is no backup there right now should either of the starters go down. They need to prepare for disaster scenarios.
Ultimately though, I think Peart has it all to play tackle in the league eventually. He is good in pass pro once he keys in on his defender, but much like Thomas's early struggles has whiffed far too often. There's hope for him yet.
Are our two first rd picks
Seems to be a lot of talent in top 15 between the two
Hoping for 2 cornerstones
