Mike Pouncey thinks the Cowboys are drafting him?

Typically speaking, NFL draft prospects are pretty good about not revealing where they think they'll end up. That's primarily because they don't actually know, but some probably have a god idea and just keep their mouths shut.

Not Mike Pouncey, though! Pouncey thinks he's getting drafted by Dallas. At least, according to his Twitter account:



The former Florida Gator and brother of Maurkice Pouncey (the Steelers star rookie center), hasn't deleted the tweet yet and has answered a pile of questions from his followers since sending that tweet out.

Interestingly, both of our mock draft experts -- Rob Rang and Chad Reuter -- have the Cowboys taking an offensive lineman at the ninth overall pick. In fact, both have the 'Boys taking Tyron Smith out of USC.

Pouncey would be a bit of a reach at ninth -- based on most draft rankings -- but given his brother's success with the Steelers last season, there are plenty of folks who are bullish on the younger Pouncey.

Including, according to him, the Cowboys.

Oh yeah, I should believe Mike Pouncey on his Twitter account. Like the Cowboys will take him...yeah, maybe they will trade down to take him is the most likely scenario. Seems to me like the Boys need Tyron Smith...an athletic offensive lineman. Well, Jerry has surprised us before and no doubt, may do it again.

Wow. Please know what you're talking about before you post comments like you are "all knowing". Michael Boley broke Romo's clavicle b/c Chris Gronkowski (rookie FB) missed an assignment. That was Doug Free's side who had a great year and will be the league's most sought after LT when free agency begins. No question they need another tackle and I hope they draft one in the 1st round (preferrably by trading down). I wouldn't mind drating Pouncy somewhere between 15-20 and then takind a tackle and DB in tyhe 2nd Round.

I'm not a Cowboys fan (but I'm a Pats fan, so I know what jealousy and hatred from other team's fans feels like), but in my opinion Pouncey would be a good fit.  The O-Line needs help, and if they think Pouncey's the best fit for an upgrade then they should take him earlier than he's projected to go.
They need outside linemen before interior linemen.  Even if they have to reach a little for someone like Tyron Smith, who may be a little of a project, they should not take Pouncey unless every team ahead of them took a tackle.  The Cowboys tackles have been poor for years and it has really hurt them in big games by allowing teams to get edge pressure in critical situations.  To say nothing of Tony Romo's clavicle, which I'm pretty sure was broken by someone who beat a tackle.  If they can stash Free on the right and Smith on the left that should be a solid nucleus with Garode in the center.  Good value guards can be had later.

Anyone have Pouncey's Wonderlic score handy? I get the feeling it was a little on the low side.




More importantly is Al Davis taking his meds?
