Remember I said replace Smith in 2014. Brooks is a natural left guard playing all his games at Miami of Ohio there and in 2011 LG or LT as a starter. Despite his girth I liked his feet and now he has reduced weight. In zone blocking he is able to move down the line tying up his guy. He is just incredibly strong and one more year will make him ready for left. I'd rather have him next to Brown also.

Oh yes! That case I agree 100%!

How would you define a "natural left guard" ? I'm well aware of the differences in skill requirements and talents needed between LT and RT, but wonder if there's really that much difference in playing LG and RG ?

I don't understand it much either. There isn't much scheme difference at all. Just the left-handed right-handed difference would be the only issue in the ZBS.

Brooks even played RG at Miami OH, so I think people just want to shake crap up just to shake crap up

Well, I don't know if i agree with Bad Boys assesment but there are differences between the guard spots besides what side of the center you're on. In pass coverage RG's tend to face the better pass rushing DT's while LG's tend to face the bigger run stopping DT's against the run. That's because the strength of the formation is generally to the right.

From what I understand, a lot of teams employ the Under front, especially in nickel (ie. passing situations.)

It provides one-on-one matchup on the weak side on the LT and the LG.
In this situation, the LG will face a 3-tech defensive linemen (or the Under Tackle), usually a quicker guy that can penetrate.

The LG also needs to pick up a possible stunt by the Weak side DE (usually the best pass rusher) or a possible blitz by a LB.

Therefore, I would say the LG needs to be a good pass protector.
Experience also plays a factor here.

Injuries had left him less than what he could be.
Same as Barrett Rudd.
If these guys had remained healthy, they wouldn't have gotten to us in the first place.

Smart re-sign for both sides. This gives good depth for Texans and Harris could very well compete for the starting RT spot come TC if Newton or a rook doesn't impress. Big bonus if he's completely healthy.
