Jim Harbaugh said the plan was to give Davis practice repetitions at both right and left tackle.
Davis as a OG? Yes. As a back-up OT? Uh, well, I'm not so sure.
I can't figure out anything we're trying to do at RG. I guess Harbaalke is trying everybody everywhere just to see who can do what.
But you're right, I can't imagine a 375lb Davis moving his behind fast enough to deal with DE's off the edge.
Either that or he's flat out lying to the media.
I don't see why he would do that. It would be silly, IMO. What teams are going to be "fooled" during the regular season by lying about who is playing where? The preseason games are what teams will look at, not reports out of training camps.
I think Harbaalke does not want to make any assumptions. If he wants to give Leonard Davis a look at T, TE, WR, S or whatever, fine, get it out of his system.
I mean look at Miller, he made a huge position switch, so why not push the standard assumptions just to see if it could work?
