    Should we consider taking a Center?

    Reading Pouncey is still having issues with his exchanges with the QB. He had issues at Florida, he had issues as a rookie and he's still having issues...I don't think he's going to get it. Would it make sense to get a Center in the draft and slide Pouncey to Guard? He'd be a heck of a guard in a ZBS. Someone like a Ben Jones in the 3rd or 4th round might not be a bad pickup.

    It's a legitimate question. Pouncey was always a wrist snapper and it leads to inconsistency snapping the football.

    A good snapper of the football is "crankin' the lawnmower" with his arm... as opposed to "striking the match" with his wrist.

    Ben Jones to me is the most overrated center prospect in the draft in my opinion. I don't like him at all unless it's a late round flyer based on body of work. Garth Gerhart is the kid who I view as underrated and a much better player than Ben Jones. I wouldn't mind Gerhart later if they wanted to steal a kid late and plug him in to move Pouncey over to left guard.

    Do you think he would be the best fit in a ZBS slimm?

    Truthfully I spent zero time looking at Centers thinking Pouncey is our starter but with his continued struggles I think getting a Center might fix two issues on the line with one draft pick.

    I think Pouncey did well last year, but there is a chance that Konz falls to us in the 2nd. If the Ravens pass - which they could well - he could slide.

    Is he THAT much better than Wisniewski? I think he's better, but I had a late-1st grade on Wisniewski last year too (granted, stronger draft).

    I'm just looking at the teams and some of the other players in that area, and I can see it happening. It wouldn't be as stupid as D. Moore falling to the 5th.

    Move Pouncy over to left guard, Draft DeCastro put him at right guard and draft a center & a RT, you think the line would be set, let's hope so........
    3 picks from 8 for the line, so that gives you 5 picks to get a QB, WR, OLB, CB and a S............
