    The "What I Would Have Done" Draft (My Real-Time Mock)

    At #18, I would have taken Bryan Bulaga. Didn't expect one of the "big 4" tackles to drop to us. We have no legit depth at tackle, and there is no guarantee that we will be able to sign Colon to a long-term extension if his asking price is more than we are willing to pay. As a rookie, he could start out a RG and be an upgrade to Essex, until we need him to move out to tackle.

    Anyone else, feel free to add your own "What I Would Have Done" suggestions here as well. I will update mine as we go along tomorrow and Saturday. I think this is a better exercise than waiting until after it is all over and having 20-20 hindsight to be able to see where everyone fell to decide what you would have done after the fact.

    I would have taken pouncey.
    then I would try to trade up to the end of the first round to get Kyle Wilson.

    Birt...I like your thoughts. Pouncey and Wilson would've been a heck of a pull.

    Lets see what happens. But like I said in the Pouncey thread, I'm not disappointed with the pick.

    I can't believe Tebow went in the first round...

    I still can't believe Tyson Alualu went to the Jaguars at #10 in the 1st round!

    and they're hoping to put more fans in the stands?

    I would have gotten Kyle Wilson. Who picks a Center in the top 20? Only the Steelers apparently. Not a bad player, but a bad value, IMO.

    After watching our DB fall apart last year without Troy, it would have been better to have a playmaker in the DB.

    Good. I'm not a draft monger like some of you guys, but when I saw that dude in the top ten after finally checking the draft board, I laughed. Nice job Jags...

    In the comments section of his blog D.Lolley says Wilson has 3 DUIs. Not really the message the FO is trying to send.

    I know this is easier said than done, but I would have tried to trade out of the 1.18 pick and pick up an extra in the second round. without a trade partner I have no problem with Pouncey, he's a safe pick and hopefully, the center for the Steelers for the next 12 years. I have no problem with Pouncey at all.

    Pouncey will be a good player for us down the road as he will be the eventual C, barring a serious injury, etc, but I agree. We really needed more depth at OT. Bulaga would have been my pick with all those other guys begin picked in front of us.


    On another note- Essex could compete with Scott next year for the RT spot. I do not know much about Scott- being a Bill.

    i agree with ur thought about playmakers in the defensive backfield.

    but, maybe the thinking was there isn't really a quality center after pouncey in this draft.

    CB is said to be deep this year, so i can see their reasoning
