Steelers to meet with linemen not named Pouncey

According to a couple of internet reports, the Steelers will meet with guard/center Rodney Hudson and offensive tackle Marcus Gilbert, both of Florida colleges for personal visits.

The Steelers had a lot of success in 2010 taking former Gator star Maurkice Pouncey in the first round and may be hoping that lightning strikes twice.

Of the two, I like Hudson, a Florida State product, a lot more. He's undersized, but Hudson can play. If he were a little bigger, he'd be a sure first-round pick. As it is, he's not likely to fall past the middle of the second round.

As for Gilbert, he's a big road grader in the Max Starks mold. Gilbert, a Florida product, is more of a third-round prospect - which is where the Steelers took Starks.
