Tough, relentless overachiever from a pipeline that produces legit pass rushers.

 

19. New York Giants

Mike Pouncey | OG-C | Florida

Wow...now everyone is on Von Miller jock. :TD:

 

Yeah that happens to alot of guys at the Senior Bowl. The NFL Draft, when you think about it is the most ridiculous thing. Then again it's one of the great things, guys will drop and fall from now and until April

That's a little early for a guard, isn't it? Or is Pouncey that good?

 

I also have question regarding this dude. I'm starting to think just because his brother is all pro, all the draft guys are jumping on this dude in hope he can mimic his brother. But if he's so great, why was his brother playing Center while he's playing guard? Why couldn't he come out for the draft the same year along with his bro? Why he moved to Center afterward?

 

On another hand, their Agent probably though if both comes out to the draft, one won't be drafted as high. Still, i would rather have the first Pouncey than the second. Like what Ricky Bobby say " if you ain't first, you're last"...

I'm not even commenting on the player--but considering that guards/centers usually begin to disappear in the very late first/early second round, picking one up at #19 doesn't seem to be all that great an idea. We picked Snee up in the early second, after all.

 

Usually, that's tackle territory in the draft.

from what im gathering he really isn't even all that good. Didn't handle the move to center all that well and wasn't a great guard before that.

I am not high on this Pouncey, his brother Maurkice is already one of the best C's in the NFL and if C's won ROY awards he probably deserved it more then anybody. Mike didn't play well at C where he replaced Maurkice at Florida he had trouble getting the snap to the Qb and before that wasn't real good playing next to Maurkice at G. I am not sure why everyone has him so high, especially in a guard heavy class. We can get John Moffitt who I like better in round 3 or 4.

You know I've been watching some of the draft shows and quite a few experts are saying this years draft is going to be one of the best for O-line and D-line. Obviously we are set at D-line but I would have no problem with us taken a round one offensive lineman, someone who can come in and help anchor down the line.

 

It's unfortunate though, I hear much like last years draft the LB pool of talent is kinda weak with only a couple true top 20 pick LBs in this draft. I wouldn't mind seeing a draft that went much like.

 

1st: O-line (guard or left tackle)

2nd: Strong side LB

3rd: RB, maybe one of those "potential" players who can turn out to be our starter or just a backup.

 

4th-7th: Another TE to back up Boss (who will be back). A safety/corner project. Another center someone who can work on as O'hara's back up and a DE because more then likely Kiwi is gone.
