Pouncey is actually that good. I don't want Haden. Pouncey is a rare athlete at Center and worthy of a top 20 pick. He's a massive upgrade for us at Center and could be elite for the next 12 years. Hardley a bad pick.
Would be a GREAT pick. He could be a very good guard for us if Baas isn't doing the job or hurt as always and/or replace Heitman at center as early as 2011 and I think Pouncey by 2012-2013, will be one of the two or three best center's in the NFL. I would love that pick and I think Pouncey at 17 may be a better overall pick than Iupati.
If we do pick Pouncey, it tells me Solari has seen on film what I have for a long time...Eric Heitman is not a very good center, esspecially since he broke his leg in late 2006.
