Could Byron Bell be a franchise Left Tackle some day?

He has great size at 6'5 340, and as the weeks go bye I just see tons of improvement in his game.
What do you think?

However, we will have to address the Line in the near future with Gross declining

If it's gonna be Bell, we should probably switch him now so Gross can teach him. Send Gross back to his natural RT and let him tutor Bell at LT. None of this back and forth Romneying, just make up your mind and go with it to minimize impeding the guy's progress.

if we've got one postition set for years to come, let's not screw that up.
i hate shuffling players around. if it's not necessary, don't screw around. if it aint broke, don't mess it up.

Luke Joeckel with our top 5 pick this year anyone?
Wouldn't be totally opposed to it....gotta go with value so it'll probably be him or star

where are all the Bell haters?

Honestly, as good as he has been at RT, I think he could be even better at LT. Guy could be a star.

It may surprise people but switching from one side to the other is a very tough ask for a player to make. According to current OLinemen in the NFL it's much easier to switch to guard than to move from LT to RT or vice versa. So any switch should be very carefully considered to avoid completely ruining one or two players progression.
For the record, gross is playing just fine in both the running and passing game. We don't really need to start grooming a player yet, he should still have several years in the league and when he does wind down just get a first round pick, as they have very high success rates over the last 5 or so years. Gross remains our best lineman in both the passing and running game and has been since he moved to LT.
