Charles Brown is currently listed as the team’s #1 Left Tackle as of the recent depth chart announcement. I’ve stated previously, and will still stick to it, but it’s Brown’s job to lose. Jason Smith is listed at #2, and has been reported as looking good in camp. Terron Armstead is right behind him, but has been taking snaps with the 2nd team mostly.
Protecting Drew’s ‘Blind Side’ will be one of these three players responsibility.
