Players at all positions get injured, it was not like he could not play. and he started the last three games of the year, 4 months after an ACL tear, because he wanted to give the steelers a sot at the playoffs.
he got hurt the 2nd preseason game, how did he struggle? he gave an interview saying he found the speed of the game the toughest thing to get used to in the minicamps. The media blew that out of proportion.
I do agree with your premise that Pick 9 is very early to take a guard.
