Also, I'll sh!t on my pillow and roll my face in it if the Steelers trade up to get Pouncey. I just don't see that happening. I agree that Williams really isn't the best choice and like the idea of trading down into the 2nd.
Agreed, so why take a gamble on a late 1st rounder just because you have a need when you can keep trying with the 3-7th round picks like we have been? If pouncey is gone in the teens and a qb is still available that someone wants I think we could get much more quality with a pair of 2nd rounders.
