    Can Pouncey be as good as Dawson was?

    There's an article on the official website today talking about had Dermontti Dawson revolutionized the Center position. There really wasn't a lineman playing during his era that could pull and get out in front of the Full Back, let alone the Running Back and make the blocks to spring him. It's even more difficult playing Center having to snap the ball and then get out and start running.

    Pouncey was awesome in 2010 but in 2011 he barely saw the field with any consistency in the 2nd half of the season. He had ankle surgery earlier this month which will hopefully fix that problematic ankle. If it does the sky is the limit but you wonder how he'll be ranked in the next 5-10 yrs against the great Centers the Steelers have had.

    I'd rather see them get the best guard possible. I'm not a big fan of picking someone with the intention of changing their position.

    Pouncey certainly has the skills to be a great center for the next 10-12 years, maybe longer. The Steelers don't draft Center's very often so they make sure they get a good one when it's time to do so. When he can plant on that ankle he's able to hold up against any NT in the league.

    its unfair to compare Pouncey to Dawson... Pouncey has a lot to learn.. I mean a lot!

    I read the post on the Steelers web site last night, great article.

    He certainly has the ability to be as good, but in a different way. They're not the same animal.

    I love Pouncy, but let's be honest. A diamond surrounded by diamonds isn't all that special. You take that diamond and put it in the middle of a pile of sh*t and it's gonna look awsome. Let's give the man some help on the line and see what happens.
