How about the Steelers get a solid offensive line man and not a back up center because he happens to be the brother of our starting center? Or maybe a defensive back or defensive lineman.

I couldn't agree more. I believe we will take a CB, even if Butler is ready. Also need to re=sign Ike. All this being said, we aren't going to be able to get it all in one draft (to help the secondary) We are pretty good on D, and helping the OL will help our TEAM.
I still think our recent Super Bowl loss had more to do with an ineffective O than D. We left lots of points out there with turnovers.

who is a back up center? Pouncey played Guard more then Center in college and can play and start at either in the NFL and more then likely play at a Pro Bowl level just like his twin. if we draft him he will immediatly be our starting right guard

I think Legursky did a decent job in the Super Bowl.

I would prefer a starting lineup of LT- Starks, LG- Kemo, C- Pouncey, RG- Colon, RT- Adams. With Legursky, Foster, Scott as backups. Then draft Adams replacement at RT in this years draft. Hopefully he would be ready to play in 2012 as this would be Flozell's last year.

Never happen though. Willie will just not move over to guard. He'd be leaving too much future money on the table.
I don't understand that thinking though. There is a huge possibility that Pouncey is going to be a solid player for years to come. You would prefer to take a RT, nobody in particular but the supposed best one available when we pick. Could be a bust, who knows?

Why take that kind of chance when you have a potential clone of one of your existing Pro Bowl lineman?

"We need a RT, take that guy, he's available and might be good, we didn't scout him, but he's there".

I see that as more of a waste.

Maurkice was rated higher than Mike, which is why he left early and Mike stayed at Florida. I watch a handful of Florida games a year and it was obvious which brother was the better player. Mike is still a good player, but I wouldn't expect him to be pro bowl material just because of the performance of his twin brother.
