Default Should the Steelers Draft..

Should the Steelers Draft Mike Pouncey, Maurkice's brother. I really think so. It will create a friendly, brotherly competition between the two and probably both of them will push each other to the limits. Compare this to Pat and Kevin Williams who are a true force in previous years for the Vikings.

They tried this with Farriors brother.. Didn't work out too well.
Steelers actually are down a back up center, but he can also play guard so thats good, but idk its something the Steelers need to address right away.

Williams boys aren't related just so you know.

Its okay, I used to think they were related too a couple years ago. Its rare to find 2 brothers on a team. Carson and his brother are on the Bengals, but only because Carson requested him.
Generally because the brother will play the same position and also wants to start lol, so they opt for another team.

We need to draft someone who doesn't know how to hit...They can make plays with "finesse" - gross me out....Don't want to have a rookie run out of money because of too many fines...Stupid King Goodell.

We should draft him only if it makes sense to, and not because he's a brother to any of our teammates.

If the Pouncey genes are good for football and his brother has the same drive and skill sets then by all means he could be an excellent edition to the team. But we shouldn't draft him just because they are related. Eli Manning went high in the draft and is payed a ton of money for being related to Peyton Manning, he's otherwise mediocre or even sub par QB. He's a best a little better than a game manager but he's one of the highest paid QBs in the league, again, all because of his name.

We don't need to do that here in Pittsburgh, we've proven time and again to be smarter than that.

Mike's having a tough year down at Florida. I'd only draft him if he falls to us as a BPA pick. Have him play guard.
