Default Re: Tomlin Swings And Misses With Pouncey....

My thoughts on Pouncey:

Has played well for a big program, facing tough competition in the SEC. Played well against Terrence Cody and Dan Williams who draw double teams, and played well against Gerald McCoy. Considered by coaches and teammates to be a leader with great work ethic.

Center has been a huge need since Jeff Hartings retired. Justin Hartwig is terrible and needs replaced anyway. Unlike rounds 2 and 3, I love this pick.

Kettle black. One question for you. Can Bulaga play center? We haven't had one since Hartings retired. One year at RG and then Pouncey anchors the middle for 10 more.

No, Bulaga can play RT, which would enable Colon to play RG, which makes us better at 2 spots instead of 1. Then you draft a OC where almost everyone else in the free world drafts them....the 2nd round. Jon Asamoa was there, and he was the 2nd rated OC in the draft. Instead, we reached....

I am liking this pick... and while I am not too impressed with some of the later picks, I see no need to proclaim any of them a bust until they proved themselves

Pouncey will be a HOF'er. Mark it down. Now whoever started this thread should kiss Pouncey on the lips.

Depth at OLB, OL, WR, DB, RB and ST.

Yeah, this draft sucks. Fire Colbert, Tomlin, LeBeau, the New OL coach and the new ST coach. Art II should step down and they should sell the team.

Why right off Pouncey already before he plays one down? This kid is big and has the talent to play center or move around on the line. I like Bulaga, but his stock dropped for a reason and Pouncey's did not.

Let this kid go out there and prove his stuff before saying he was a bad pickup.

Yeah Okay sure Lets plug Linemen in and out like if it was Madden 2011. You seriously gonna put a Rookie RT on the edge against NFL hungry speed rushers on an island especially with the schedule we have right now? Cmon use some common sense Colon is fine at where hes at and You tell me how easy it is to find Great Centers on the Draft. It isnt and look at the level of competition Pouncey went against compared to Bulaga. No brainer pouncey was the best pick
