Default Pouncey running 1st team Center in today's main scrimmage.

jim wexell, ken laird, and ed bouchette all reporting.

today could be "start of a new era".


Ken_Laird Maurkice Pouncey said he took all first team 11-on-11 reps today: "Put on a big smile on me, I ain't gonna lie. I just want to stay humble"

Thats the news most of us want to hear.

Now I hope that we get to hear that there is a start of a new era at RG next to Maurkice. Hartwig and Essex were not the strongest interior.

It would be nice if Urbik could step it up, because right now he's looking like a complete bust.

i was hoping this would happen. our line sucked last year. hartwig was in the nfl for a long time so obviously his play isnt going to get any better. we really need pouncy to step in and play well

great news

Seeing how good Pouncey's been, I REALLY REALLY wanna draft Mike next year. Not only would it be great chemistry and a great storyline to have them on the same team, but we'd *likely* have a beasting interior line as well. I have a feeling we're gonna need to take another defensive player in the first next year though (due to age, not inadequacy of our current starters), but Id personally still rather wait a year to draft replacements if we could have Mike

Not all reports have Urbik being a bust.

Urbik has received some good reviews early in training camp and could appear to be on an equal footing with Legursky for probably the last O line spot on the roster.

He has been working out at OG and OC to try and see his worth come game day. At college he had OT experience as well.

He definitely gets another year on the roster courtesy of 2nd year and draft status.

Essex gets RG by default but Foster and Urbik will be ready to Pounce if he slips up.

if maurkice does really well this year, chances are stock will also go up on his brother and he'll be picked too high for us to get. otherwise that would be awesome to get them both. Maybe like SteelKnight suggested, trade up to get him? :P

I think RT is more of a need position than guard right now at least, though.

i would love to have the other Pouncy if we could land him in the 2nd but he will be a 1st round pick and probably the 1st guard selected. next year NT will probably be our biggest need with Hampton getting up there. if we dont select a NT in the 1st then a tackel will be a must
