2011 NFL Mock Draft: Steelers Connected To Mike Pouncey

SBNation.com's latest mock draft has the Steelers taking Florida offensive lineman Mike Pouncey, the brother of current Steelers offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey. This isn't the first time someone has thought to connect the Steelers to another Pouncey, and for good reason: the Steelers need offensive line help badly, and their current issues there would be a lot worse if not for the addition of Mike Pouncey's twin brother. The mock suggests that Mike would be the third offensive lineman selected in the draft, behind Mississippi State's Derek Sherrod at No. 23 and Boston College's Anthony Castonzo at No. 27, which sounds about right.

Dwayne Bowe has been several kinds of awesome this season, but he'll be a free agent following the 2011 season, and he's the only receiver opponents need to pay attention to. Baldwin has excellent natural talent.
