Default Drafting the other Pouncey twin?

What is the chance that the Steelers will/can draft twin brother Mike Pouncey from Florida next year?

With the hurting line, it would be nice to have TWO Pouncey’s in front of Ben… not to mention having the communication and timing of “twins” on the line.

It's stupid to draft pouncey just because his brother is on our team already. If he's the BPA, then get him but I can't see anymore benefits b/c his twin is here.

he'll be better than essex but i wouldn't burn a 1st round pick if he's not worthy of that.

he's got a lot of experience playing next to his brother though, maybe that could be a factor in taking them, they know all eachother's strengths and weaknesses sorta thing

He's not worth a 1st round if he'll be a guard. He's only 1st round worthy to teams that need a center.

He is considered one of the best center's comming into the draft... I believe his stock as only gone up because of his brother and because there aren't very good centers in college this year wanting to go into the draft.

ugh, I really hate how people automatically assume a sibling, even a twin, will basically be just as good as the other, that's just not the case.
