Good post.
Where we draft almost every year, we're not going to get a shot at too many stud linemen. You're not always going to have a player like Pouncey fall to you.

Some people act like Pouncey is the only lineman they've drafted in the past 10 years, like they're not even making an effort. As I jokingly said in another thread ... maybe we should tank a few seasons so we can draft some top linemen.
