I don't understand why they'd put him there if they intended to play x at lg and brooks at right...

I thought brooks was at lg sometime before the draft. I never saw anything else about where they were lining up.

If he was at lg after x was drafted, then I think they are at least considering him for lg. Oline is a position group where you king of want to get your starters locked in. Don't wanna be moving guys all over. Unit continuity with the OL is probably more important than any other position group.
They're allowed to participate in ROOKIE camp. Pretty sure that's when we saw him. Then back to graduate. He should be back for mandatory but has fallen way behind so will stick to guard and not guard & tackle like O'Brien wanted to do. Don't have a link but IIRC that was an exchange between John Harris an Marc Vand'mr on "Inside The Huddle" a few weeks back.
