But I think Taylor could very well be starting by the end of the year.

Fragel to start, but by the end of the year Decker will be getting just as many snaps.

With Stoney moved out to WR, why not bring Fragel back to TE? If Decker struggles, Fragel can step in, but it would be great to line them up next to each other on running plays.

Fragel weighs close to 300 pounds now..there's no turning back.
I think Reid starts until he gets burned against quality DE's and then they'll make the switch.

Yeah you don't just switch back and forth between those two haha. 
Honestly, Stoneburner was going to be in the flex position the whole time, regardless of whether he was labelled as a TE or not. If Meyer thought Fragel was the best option at pure TE, he would've kept him there, and looked at guys like Farris for RT. There's a reason Fragel was looked at for RT, and it stems from Heuerman and Vannett impressing at TE, something that has been said a few times by the coaching staff.

I'm going to say that Fragel holds onto the spot, but who knows, Guiton looks like he gained a few pounds.

I'm going with what Linsley told me because he seemed pretty passionate about it and also came across like a very smart cat.

Fragel will be the starter but Decker will see playing time in every game.

I expect this as well. It has been made very clear that they both have their own strengths. Fragel will get that nod to start game 1 but Decker will absolutely play.

Except Guiton is really Orlando Pace

I never saw a football player make a tackle with a smile on his face

I think they will split time all year with Fragel getting more time in the begining but by the end of the year Decker will be getting more time.

Kenny Guiton - smallest offensive tackle in Ohio State history.

Class of 2010.

but just imagine how quickly he'll be able to get to the outside and block on screen passes or fly sweeps.

The question is, is it Ken Guiton or Kenny Guiton?

Your mom told me she wants a Dicken Cidar.
