    "Arkansas OG Mitch Petrus posted 5.25 and 5.28 forty times during his pro day workout Thursday.

    Petrus ran a 5.32 at the combine before pulling a hamstring, so this was just a slight improvement. He also did a workout at center for three offensive line coaches Thursday, looking to increasing his versatility."

    I think so, plus he's a former Fullback. Lots of versatility. Probably reminds McD of a young Hochstein. He's probably a 4th Round guy, I could see us looking at him over Eric Olsen or other similar players. I don't know much about his character though, haven't researched it yet.

        I dunno. The Chiefs, Pats, Jags, Steelers, Vikings, Falcons, Cardinals, Giants, Redskins, and possibly the Colts all need a young stud at OC.

        I'm not convinced Walton or Tennant make it out of the 2nd. I'd argue it's highly unlikely neither will fall to our 3rd Round pick, I'd place the odds at 5%.

          Ill admit Pouncey may be hard for us to get. Ill be a bit radical here even though there is Olsen Walton and Tennant who are ranked higher then him. Jeff Byers is a good C. He has improved tremendously and had an amazing season. I am not saying draft him in the 4th but I am just saying dont rule him out

              Nice come back but I think what makes Pouncey the elite C he is not only because he was dominant but because he can play nearly anywhere on the line Eric Olsen is the next best C to fit that description and he is well aware of the ND offense that McD's mentor came from. Walton is probably the 2nd most dominant player in the draft. Byers had the best results to be honest I dont see the upside to Tennant besides the fact he had 40 consecutive starts and was Matt Ryans center

                If it works out that one of these guys is drafted in round 2 and becomes the starting C and Olsen becomes the starting LG that would mean that one starting OL had come from each of the past 5 drafts with each coming from a different round. Not earth shattering but kinda cool.

                  pouncey= poor pass protection tecnique, really isnt as physical in the run game as some think, grabs alot, cant make line calls....elite isnt what i would use to describe pouncey....mayock disagrees but i just dont see pouncey making a impact like some think he will....Florida lineman on both lines do not do well in the pros...

                    I've never seen anyone say he has poor technique. It's always been superb technique, pro-ready from day 1. He's also very intelligent. There's no flaws with Pouncey.

                      I dont get why you would draft either that high?


                      You go skilled, skilled...Pick up a late OC...You have us taking 3 O-Line with the 2,3,4th round?

                      No way...

                      Not with this skilled of a draft... Not when you can get a Kyle Wilson, or Benn, or Best, even a Cody, a Spikes, McCourty, _________fill in the blank.

                      Im just not sold on any O-line not named Pouncey and not till the 3rd or later...

                        The reason Pouncey is so highly rated is because Florida had one of the most successful rushing attempts off the line and they did it without any good rushers. Also he has the rare ability to play C G and RT which makes him even more valuable.

                        Considering that there are only a handful of C who can play G and hardly any that play RT. Versatility is a good thing to have in an Oline because they sometimes have to constantly shift around and in case you want to move another player you wont have to cut or trade them but rather shift them to a different spot. The next C/G would be Eric Olsen who is used to the same power offense, he didnt get to play with Quinn but was in college the same time. Still he is not as amazing as Pouncey as a rush blocker but as a pass blocker he only gave up one sack.

                        Dont get me wrong I want Tennant or Walton and I would faint if we landed Pouncey but I think Eric Olsen is the most underrated Center in the draft because his team sucked last year
