Default Re: Expecting the Unexpected: What if the Steelers trade up for someone not named Pou

Neither am I.

Maurkice left a year early to give his bro a shot at starting center at Florida... Early on he was aweful. High snaps. Inconsistency. It took him almost 3/4 of the season to get comfortable. He is very athletic, and would be a pretty good guard for the pulling type plays the Steelers enjoy running. He could definately have that unspoken chemistry with his brother, but if doesn't slide to the mid-20's... we won't reach any higher.
