Default Kyle Wilson vs Markice Pouncey

i remember some ZOMGoblins out in full force when we passed on 1st round cb wilson in favor for pouncey.

many were so certain that will gay sucked so bad, a 1st round rookie was the only answer to getting our defense back on track.

little did they know a plan was in the works to trade for mcfadden.

after watching wilson play mediocre at best vs the ravens on MNF, and witnessing an upgrade in our o-line, doesnt it appear obvious that we definitely got the longer end of the stick?

Yeah ...I was thinking the same thing. I was one wo was salivating over Wilson for weeks leading into the draft. I like our choice now.

That being said, Wilson will be a baller by next year.

i didn't follow the lead up to the draft nearly as much as prior years... but i don't think anyone could have predicted Pouncey would be so good, so soon. he played in a unique situation at Florida with Tebow.. that was the furthest thing from a pro-style offense and it was very possible Tebow made the offensive linemen look better than they really were with his ability to scramble and keep defenders from pressuring a lot, as well as Florida's lack of a traditional running game. so it's hard to blame fans who had reservations about Pouncey given they didn't see his private workouts or watch the game film coaches do. just be glad fans aren't running the FO.

Hell yes!! I have said that the Steelers and coaching staff know what the Steelers need more than we fans do and year after year the Steelers have come out with Gems in each draft.

Pouncey is a great pick now if we can pick up a couple of more specimens for the O-line this next draft it would make me pretty happy. He was pretty damn solid for his first start as a rookie.

The O-Line did alright against the Falcons I thought. Couple of missed plays but Dixon got decent time to throw the ball. Although I thought and still think he should make the Defense scared about his running ability .

You know my opinion on this.

I wouldn't trade Pouncey for any other center in the league right now. He may be the best pick in this draft and we are very lucky to have him.

pouncey all the way. I'm sure at this point he's done more than any of the high profile draft picks in rd 1 like suh, berry, spiller

great pick, i feel we got something special in this kid. i was originally hoping rolando mcclain would eventually fall down to us so we could pick him, but im glad things worked out the way they did. pouncey is what our o-line needed

Kyle Wilson's jump up the draft board kind of suprised me. It seemed like one week he was a second or third round guy and the next he was the second best corner in the draft. I don't know. I'm no draft expert but I wasn't that high on him for some reason.
