    Default Mel Kiper: Steelers to select Florida C Pouncey

    Kiper has UF C/G going to Steelers in first round
    April 7th, 2010


    With the NFL draft two weeks away, ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr. has the Steelers taking Florida center/guard Maurkice Pouncey with their first-round pick, No. 18 overall.

    “I think the Steelers could use a versatile, interior presence that can play at a high level at center or guard,” Kiper said today on a conference call. “He’s also got great character.”

    If the Steelers took the 6-5, 304-pound Pouncey with their top pick, they could play him at right guard, where they could use an upgrade, and eventually move him to center.

    Pouncey compares favorably with Jets center Nick Mangold, who has made the last two Pro Bowls and become one of the top players at his position.

    If the Steelers address the offensive line with their first-round pick, Kiper said, they almost have to use their second-round pick on a cornerback.

    Kiper said Patrick Robinson of Florida State would be a strong possibility for the Steelers in the second round if they go with a cornerback.

    Another possibility he mentioned in the second round is East Carolina nose tackle Linval Joseph.

    “Is really under the radar,” Kiper said of the 6-41/2 328-pound Joseph, “but has really come along and is now a solid late (round) one or early to mid two.”

    Kiper said the Steelers may take a defensive end early in the draft and said Arkansas State’s Alex Carrington is a possibility for them in the third round. Joseph, he said, also could play end in a 3-4 defense.

    I wouldn't object to drafting OL.

    I wouldn't really oppose Pouncey being drafted at all and that's saying something since I normally disagree with Kiper since he makes his decisions based on what the media hypes as a weakness for the Steelers and does little to no research outside of that.

    That said, I wanna say that Kiper is generally usually wrong with who the Steelers pick, so if you want the Steelers to draft someone, hope that Kiper doesn't pick him too

    OL at #18 and then follow with CB and then DL/ILB/ILB in the Third.

    If they do anything but CB in the Second (Ricky Sapp?), they then should pick the kid from IUP in the Third, Ansah Owaksu (CB/S/KR). He's a poor man's Earl Thomas.

    Would the possible replacement of Hartwig a.k.a. Buggy Boy mean the possibility of the line less frequently folding like a deck chair (i.e. in the middle)?

    has kiper ever been right? he spends more time on his hair, and his on air character, than he does researching the draft, these days.

    that said, i wouldn't be opposed to pouncey, but i think better value will be there when we draft.

    I doubt it. Our line is going to look bad as long as Big Ben is QBing. I wouldn't waste the top pick on OL, D needs help badly!

    I'm not looking for OL help to protect the 100 million dollar idiot, I want OL to help the run game....so ol with the 1st pick is okay with me....Kiper can suck a dick but for once I agree with him on his pick.

    Mel Kipper has never even heard of value picks I dont believe. Thus the reason he's normally a flop.
