Technical Questions # 247: The conundrum that is the Offensive Line


Could someone help me with OLine positions please. I am doing my 'pre-pre-pre-draft' and am having some trouble figuring out OL.

In order our OL is:
Staley - Iupati - Goody - Boone - Davis.

Boone moved to LT when Joe got hurt. Can someone tell me who covered RG when Boone moved across please?

When Iupati went down, Snyder came in to LG rather than Boone moving to LG and Snyder coming in at RG. Can someone explain to me why that happened? Is it as simple as not wanting to move guys around too much or is there more to it?

Can someone also give me a quick rundown on the rest of the OLine players and their positions please? I get a little lost knowing who is backup to whom.

Also, is LG a 'harder' position to play than RG?

Thanks guys.
