Several tv personalities including Mike Wilbon, and Mike Mayock agree that this NFL labor lockout could affect how elite ranked players get drafted. They have several mid range "mock projects" that will drop in rankings. I agree that the steelers are in a great position which will allow them to take the best player available in the draft. Now I'm sure Mike pouncey will be taken off the boards before we get there due to his successful year with us, which got us to the Superbowl. But I wouldn't mind if the Steelers went with a tackle, to replace an aging Flozell. We all know he can't block those edge rushers. I mean if Clay mathews could have been blocked better then we'd have a 7th title in Pittsburgh. I love this tackle that this mock draft has us taking. Mock NFL Draft
Do you think we could move pouncey outside and put this guy as a guard in his rookie year? Maybe we could even do that with Flozell?
BTW, On a separate note, it's Mike Tomlin's birthday today, so happy birthday Mike, and many more to you, as your sure to be with Pittsburgh for the next 5 years.
