There's a guy, who could without a doubt play 4 OL positions, and quite possibly 5. He played a pro style offense at Iowa, and has everything you could ask for in a OL. Big, strong, tough, and nasty. He was built by God to play the OL. Then you have Pouncey.... a FLA product, who played in a gimmick offense, who by all accounts is averaged sized for an OL. Couple that with the fact that he's oddly built in that his legs appear to be skinny. A problem in a the Pro Game where he'll be expected to anchor against the likes of Shawn Rogers & Haloti Ngata. All in all, like when Tomlin drafted Timmons to be an OLB in the 3-4, and Hood to be a DE in the 3-4, despite the fact that both came from 4-3 programs and had never played their prospective positions, once again, he "projects" what he thinks Pouncey could be. You don't "project" in the 1st round. You take the proven commodity. His name is Bryan Bulaga...
You make it sound like Tomlin made this pick without the input of other coaches

Dan Marino scored a 16 on his wonderlic and we know how awful he was. Maybe you would rather have Drew Henson as your QB. He scored a 42. Wanna keep throwing out bogus stats?

The Steelers FO have nailed all of their first round picks since Colbert has joined them. Would it have been nice to pick up Bulaga, Dan Williams or Kyle Wilson....absolutely, but we just drafted one of the safest and of course best center in the entire draft last night.

Amazing how the kid hasn't even hit the field yet and is being called a bust. What a joke. You have to love fan GMs

We are really going to screw the rest of the draft up now. We forgot to consult the wonderlic scores.

Now apparently Terry Bradshaw, Randall Cunningham, Jim Kelly all scored 15. I guess that makes them Bubba if a 14 is Forrest.

Dan Marino was a 16, Donvan McNabb 14.

History shows that their teams all suffered immensely as the result of their intellectual impairments.

HINT( now you counter that an O lineman has the need for a higher wonderlic score than a QB and I counter that the wonderlic is a racially and culturally biased test)

I just want to know if they looked into trading down with anybody...Pouncey would have probably been on the board 7 to maybe even 10 picks later. We could have traded down to 25-28, picked up another draft pick and either used it or perhaps packaged it to move up higher in the 2nd.

Would you have rather drafted Iupati as a Guard if he was available???
