    If Pouncey falls to us at 20 and we pass on him, I am going to be very sad
    his versatility and talent make him a priceless commodity

    we have needs at Rb and Cb but we can address those later
    pouncey is special and is from a winning program
    we need more guys that aren't used to losing ala Cushing

    Exactly. And guys who won't get ***** slapped around. Though I guess it remains to be seen if that will happen to Pouncey.

    In this scenario, with the top safeties, RBs, and CBs off the board... If we don't want Pouncey, I think it's a prime spot to trade down with someone interested in either: Sergio Kindle or Jimmy Clausen.

    There's no way in hell Clausen would get past Jacksonville and the Patriots wouldn't take him if he was there at 22, they are pretty high on Brian Hoyer. This is one of the worst mock drafts I've seen this year.

    It's John McCain! If you notice, he got to about pick 12 and then started listing all the guys he thinks the Texans are interested in (5 in a row), intentionally creating what he thinks is the worst case scenario. He has no clue what's going to happen. He has no close friends inside the organization that are giving him info they don't dissiminated. His insistence on Matthews, Thomas, and Wilson is based on the same conjecture you or I can do.

    Believe it or not, I like Pouncey a lot too. Although, I'm not sure I could bring myself to select him at 20 with CB being such a HUGE need. I would not "eat my hat" if we did though.

    McCourty fills a bigger need, but Pouncey fills a need with bigger/better talent. In this situation I'd prefer to take Pouncey in the 1st round and then we can pick up a good CB in the 2nd.

    I can't see the separation in talent in what's available at CB in the 1st and 2nd round. However, RB and interior O-line have a much larger gap. From what I've seen, there's Pouncey, then everybody else. Including Iupati, whom I consider a major project.

    There's no way I would take a CB in the 1st round of this draft. Not when there is as much depth available, combined with the fact that there are no elite prospects at the position. On the other hand, Pouncey is an elite prospect at Center. Dan Williams is an elite prospect at NT. Earl Thomas is an elite prospect at Free Safety. And, I consider Spiller and Mathews elite prospects at RB. It's no lock that any of these guys will be available. But if one is, I grab him and find a darn good corner in the 2nd round.

    Very good point, Lucky. As I mentioned earlier, I wouldn't be upset taking Pouncey in the 1st, but the case you're making is making me lean towards Pouncey and Dan Williams even more. I think Thomas will be long gone and I'm not much of a fan of a RB in the 1st.

    Pouncey and Williams will probably be gone. So what then?

    Ok, but I was kinda addressing to Lucky's comment that there was no way he would take a CB. I hope we have better options, but if they are gone and no one is willing to give a good price to mve up, CB may be the best value.

    I was going under the impression that all the "elite" prospects Lucky mentioned were off the table. In addition to me not wanting to go RB in the 1st, CB would be the route to take. IMO

    In the end, it'll be hard for me to get upset at who ever they take due to the depth of this draft and what we're likely going to have to choose from. It'd be kinda hard to go wrong......unless you're the Raiders, of course
