I can't see any scenario where you call drafting Pouncey a mistake. The need was there and the correct selection made. I am not sure if Wiezsniski (SIC) was still on the board when Pouncey was selected, but I may have given him some thought in lieu of Pouncey.
Either way, we made the correct selection.
I saw an article where Urbik gave up zero sacks this last season for the Bills. He may suck as you say, but how would he have looked in lieu of Kemo, Essex, Foster, and/ or Legs? These guys didn't really impress me as NFL grade starting material.
Lance Zierlien said Urbik was better than Foster but Foster had more confidence. The lockout really messed things up, if Urbik paned out and we got DeCastro this yeah we'd be jumping for joy. I don't think Urbik was given time. Bruce Davis for the Steelers was a wasted pick.
urbik was released september 2010....he wasnt released cause the lockout messed things up, he was released because he was getting blasted off the ball, was slow off the snap, and had lead in his feet.
Im glad hes servicable in buffalo, but that doesnt make me wish we kept him...he was a bad pick, a reach, and an underperformer overrated because of the school he played for. Completely a wasted pick, just like 90% of the picks in 09
EDIT: lance zierlien lmao, disgruntled son of a fired oline coach...a radio/blog personality. i bet he thinks the steelers made all kinds of wrong moves. releasing urbik was 10x better than drafting him imo
but who really cares right?........ decastro <3333

I thought Isaac Redman would be a better RB in Bruce Arians offense than Mendenhall would be ... ... I still believe that!
It's hip to T-Squared ...
I really liked Ryan Leaf coming out of college.....lol I'm serious thought he was going to be a stud....lol Still remember him beasting in college......To bad Leaf had the mentality of an eight year old and no mental toughness.......Thought Fred Gibson was going to be a player at one time to....lol
I drank the Sweed juice big time but I was wrong...
I also thought Chad Henne would have a much better professional career.

Coming to you live from the Fortress of Steelertude!
Not drafting Carson Wiggs this year.. Seahawks have him. we need a big kicker
Early on, I wanted to trade up for POE....with DeCastro, Adams, and Ta'amu falling to us...thank god for unanswered prayers!
Just started paying attention to the draft heavy this year ... but i absolutely love Marcus Dowtin , now plays for the jets, guess it'll take some years to see if i was right about him
