I bet Pioli is playing predraft poker. I also heard that the Steelers are very interested to trade up to around where wi pick in tne hopes of "reuniting the Pouncey brothers." If that's the case and Pouncey is not gone by 21 we may yet get the scenario I've been pimping where we trade down and draft Brooks Reed. I'd be ecstatic with that.

They have to expect him to play C, no?

Asamoah showed very very well last season, like RG for the next 1/2 decade well. Lilja's a damn fine player in his own right.

Surely they're not looking at this roster and saying - "Y'know what? I think we're a top shelf guard away from taking the next step..."

I'm inclined to think that it is just a smokescreen to get a team to move up to our slot.

I do like the possibility of trying to move up this year, if there's someone Pioli really wants. It seems like just about everyone wants to move down this year, so it may be possible to move up at less "cost" than the points chart would indicate. I'd hate to see them do it for Pouncey, though...

I don't believe any of these pre-draft rumors; that being said, if Pioli is thinking of trading up for him, he'd better be damn sure he can play center, and at a very high level. We have too many holes to trade up for anything less than an elite talent.

There's at least a solid chance that Wisnewski projects as a better C than Pouncey and he could slip to us in the 2nd...

Moving up to take Pouncey would be a horrid decision no matter how we play it out. Taking him at 21 would be okay, but I'd still rather we trade back with the Steelers if he falls to us.

Those circumstances were different, though. There was no chance at all of Jackson going ahead of our pick. We're talking about a trade up situation here. If Pioli really wanted Pouncey, it would almost certainly be more beneficial to keep that information under wraps.

Then again, Pioli has already made plenty of "WTF" decisions, so who really fucking knows.

Why would Pioli draft Tyson Jackson if he didn't think he was a good player? Or fuck... even Jake O'Connell?

I'm thinking that we do want to trade up, not trade back, and that the smokescreen is which player we're interested in.

While I can't say I'd be ecstatic about the selection, I'm even less enthused about the idea of continuing to run a 3-4 without a ****ing NT.

Oh, and with three first-rounders across the D-line, it better be tits.If it isn't, we'll have to wait until the 2012 1st round to solidify our defensive ends.

THEN we'll be all kinds of awesome

You can't judge Pioli until 2015, unless you're a GM.

I just don't think Taylor is a first round player. In fact, I'm not convinced he's any better than Kenrick Ellis or Powe. I agree we absolutely need to draft a nose this year, but I just don't want it to be Taylor at 21. If we can trade back and get him, then fine.

I hear you, but there have been some scary-ass rumors throughout the day. With those in mind, Taylor doesn't sound as bad.

There were not good reasons at the time to not fill the positions with other candidates.

A picture is worth 1000 words.

Or in this case 1000 defensive line draft picks

Chris Neild in the 5/6 range would be a winner as well.

But, as I said, those two being red flagged doesn't explain why we didn't take any nose tackle...

Cody was a no-brainer...no one that big has feet that light...he dominated in the SEC


but people saw a picture of him with man boobs and freaked out...flat out retarded to pass on him twice..imho

He didn't play that many snaps because he wasn't starting.

Jesus, I hope they aren't thinking about a vet WR in FA.

Their track record is ****ing awful trying to do that.Maybe they think they can sign Breaston in fa...Cody was a no-brainer...no one that big has feet that light...he dominated in the SEC

Not a draft stacked blue chippers.

I don't think they will find a trade partner in the 6-10 range to get Jones and be happy with what they would have to give up. Only way i see it is if a team will take less than the chart indicates.

Jones and Bowe would be awesome i just don't think it happens.

A. Smith and Quinn i would move up to get, no doubt. Smith will probably go 10-12 so thats a tough move up to make.

Castanzo and Kerrigan i wouldn't be pissed if they moved up a few spots. The BC tackle is more versitlile than Carimi, more ready and safe than Solder and plays with a mean streak. Kerrigan isn't an elite rusher but fits the Tamba mold in relentless and is a film and gym rat that will work to improve.

I could see Miami trading back to 21 and taking Capernick.

If they take pouncey i sure hope he is closer to his bros skillset than some say. Markese or however you spell it had a good impact w/ the steelers. I don't want to take a G that early though. Better be sure he can adapt to C. Not only mechanics but mentally making the calls, etc.

Should be able to try and trade back a few spots and probably not lose out on Ayers or Taylor.

They have worked out C. Lieguet and Pea along with Wilkerson. I think they are trying to look at options for NT besides the huge NT's w/character concerns. Lieguet and Pea seem to fit the one gap schemes better. Depends on how much weight they can hold and be effective. Wilkerson probably couldn't play the nose but i wouldn't be pissed if they tried him there even if they had to move him to end. His highlights make him look like a pretty good prospect. Kid can move.

Wildcard is Baldwin and T. Smith. Just seems like most agree that the dropoff past the top 2 is very steep and there isn't a 3rd WR worthy of a first rd. pick.

3 more hours!

I would be very happy if this rumor were true.
As far as it being a smoke screen, I see a pattern...
-Everybody seemed to figure out that Pioli was going to draft Jackson in the days leading up to the draft
-Last year Pioli says "you don't take a safety with a top 5 pick". He totally threw everyone off
-This year everybody seems to figure that Pioli will trade up to get Pouncey.

See? It's elementary.

Riveting tale chap and all, but he didn't say "you don't take a safety with a top 5 pick." That was a line pulled out of Peter Kings fat ass.

hard to believe you can't learn how to snap correctly, eventually

Damien Woody never did master shotgun. That's why he was moved to Guard. For a fwe years he played Center if the QB was under center, and rotated to guard if we went shotgun. Oy...
