Compton is a 6th round pick aka developmental. I think they're planning on Trent playing every snap and, if so, his backup is not relevant.

I don't follow?

It makes perfect sense for Polumbus, Willie Smith and Maurice Hurt to compete at RT as opposed to Compton.
Mr.Glass brittle hips all but guarantees that the back-up RT will start/play in a fair share of games if not become the opening day starter.
And unlike Compton; Tyler, Willie and Mau all know this ZBS scheme and have played/started in actual NFL games.

I don't see how/why grooming Compton as Trent William's back-up says anything about whether 'Trent really is our guy'.

Huh?
A 6th round pick with 0 games started, 0 games played doesn't 'deserve' anything because they haven't earned it yet.
They certainly don't deserve playing time over guys that have actually played, started and performed in actual NFL games, regardless of draft position.

And again, what does playing Compton as Trent's back-up say about whether or not 'Trent is our guy'

lol, you think Trent is the guy because of his cap number?
No offense but that is absurd; Trent's talent is so obvious this statement just seems crazy to me.
Trent would be the guy if he walked in off the street the day before the Saints game.

The question is: can you rely on him? I think the speculation here is, going into the off-season, there was a need to improve LT depth. Was/is Compton the answer? Only time will tell
That maybe how you see it.
Here's how I see it.

There are already 3 possible back-ups RT ahead of him: Polombus, Willie Smith and Maurice Hurt there is only 1 guy ahead of him at LT Willie Smith.
Having a 3rd guy that can play LT is more valueable then having a 4th guy at RT.

IMO they are trying Compton on the LT spot to see if he can play multiple positions.

Well I guess my question of "is there tobacco pipes for women" can finally be answered.
