The 6-foot-1 Hampton is listed at 325 pounds, but the five-time Pro Bowler is the first to say he hasn’t been at that weight in a long time. That may be changing after Hampton, 32, signed a three-year, $21.2 million contract in February. “I’ve seen him in all shapes and forms,” Smith said. “And he looks good right now.” — Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
    That's all goods news JOM. Why the headbanger?

As long as he has the shotgun down...He could elevate into a Top C with some good coaching. And I just changed my mock from Iupati to trading down for Pouncey. I can't wait until this is over!!!
    Keep Iupati. He is All Pro potential. Pouncey is just solid starter potential IMO.

    I want Iupati because I think he excels at Guard and has the upside to be a dominant RT. This could be very valuable if we can't keep Colon and if we do we end up with a totally dominat side of our OL.

    With Hartwig, Legursky and now possibly Urbik we don't need another Center.
    I would love to get Iupati instead of Pouncey. Unfortunately, I do my mocks as to who I think we will pick based on who is left. I had Iupati for some time now but I get the sense he will be gone. As far as Iupati vs Pouncey. Iupati has tremendous upside but Pouncey looks more NFL ready. If you freeze them right now, Pouncey is the better player. Iupati's flaws look to be coachable because he got lazy feet playing against lesser competition.
