    At LSU you played right OT from 2007 to 2009. In 2010 you took over & started 14 games @ left OT post. You were able to excel @ both posts...That's rare & it's very valuable to NFL teams. Your first NFL starts in 2012 was @ left OT for the injured Wayne Hunter & Roger Saffold. This season you have taken up the right OT post for the injured Saffold. You have described your role with the Rams as the "Swing Tackle". Presently to me you are a solid good starting NFL right OT.

    #1-In today's NFL ..what is the main difference other than the left is Sam's blindside?
    #2-What side works best for you with your God given talents?
    #3-What side is your preference?

    Thank you so much for your valuable time.

    Honestly I don't have a preference for either side, I think that God gifted me with the ability to be able to play both so I just work twice as hard to be good at both.
