In an article on Fox Sports Midwest - discussing Rodger Saffold finding peace with his switch from left to right tackle - the Rams’ offensive line coach, Paul Boudreau, makes a comment about one particular player that has implications on the team’s depth chart.
If you are a guy who is a backup guy, Rokevious Watkins or Brandon Washington, you are a swing guy, so you are going to have to work like a switch hitter.
This snippet was mainly in reference to Saffold’s transition from left tackle to the right side of the line, and how he’ll need to make both mental and physical adjustments in his new role. The move for Saffold was not of his own volition, but he’s coming to grips with it. At least he’s still a starter.
