What is the chance that the Steelers will/can draft twin brother Mike Pouncey from Florida next year?

With the hurting line, it would be nice to have TWO Pouncey’s in front of Ben… not to mention having the communication and timing of “twins” on the line.

All I can say is he better do a hell of a lot better than he did this year!!

It's stupid to draft pouncey just because his brother is on our team already. If he's the BPA, then get him but I can't see anymore benefits b/c his twin is here.

he'll be better than essex but i wouldn't burn a 1st round pick if he's not worthy of that.

he's got a lot of experience playing next to his brother though, maybe that could be a factor in taking them, they know all eachother's strengths and weaknesses sorta thing

He's not worth a 1st round if he'll be a guard. He's only 1st round worthy to teams that need a center.

He's ___ especially ___ not worth a 1st round as a center. Have

He is considered one of the best center's comming into the draft... I believe his stock as only gone up because of his brother and because there aren't very good centers in college this year wanting to go into the draft.

ugh, I really hate how people automatically assume a sibling, even a twin, will basically be just as good as the other, that's just not the case.

I would love to see both Pouncey' s in black and gold (although Mike is having a rough year), but in reality, I do not think that interior Olinemen is our priority now-- we need tackles desperately.

OT, DL, CB should be our priorities in this next draft. Our Oline is in shambles and especially the tackle position. We have only one viable "young blood" on our defensive line-- Hood, and every other guy on that unit has been showing his age this year. And we don't need to specify about CB after watching McFadden, Gay, and Lewis stink the joint up.

The best line in college has to be Wisconsin. They have these huge farm boys that just blow apart a d-line

Mike is a much better guard then he is Center......I like the idea of it but its still too early to forecast

Yeah, but a lot of people are hyping up Gabe Carimi....I think he will be only a RT in the NFL. My sleeper OT wish is we get Nate Potter from Boise St. or Joseph Barksdale of LSU.

Face it, with guys like Jon Scott, Flozell Adams the best available backups ..........couldnt hurt to pick a light footed guy to groom at LT for when Starks finally moves on. I think Chris Scott is the RT of the future, time to protect Ben's blind side.

I don't see a lot of Boise games because of the time zone

I agree it's time to find someone to protect the blindside.

If we take him at #32 as the best G available, I won't be hurt
