Why not? plenty of things point in the direction of Pouncey landing in Pittsburgh:

Lots of coaches believe in blood. Same reason why Matthews brother will end up being a little overdrafted imo.
I agree that while Mike may not be as polished as Maurkice that does not mean that he will not be a starter on our line for years. I think he is good enough as a guard that he would be an instant upgrade over our starters now. Plus he is versatile as is his brother. I think people forget that he is able to play more than one position. A lot of people have him projected as a guard but who's to say that he is not a great center. The last two guys we traded up for in the first round turned out well....or at least for a few years with Santonio.
