2011 NFL Mock Draft: Mike Pouncey Predicts He Will Be Drafted By The Cowboys

As we approach the 2011 NFL Draft, our feelings about which players might go to which teams becomes a little bit more crystallized. But it turns out none of us know as much about the draft as Mike Pouncey, a guard from Florida, who projects to go some time in the middle of the first round. But if you ask him, he's going No. 9 to the Cowboys, and he's pretty sure about it.

For those of you saying, "wow, that's a little bold, why would he tweet that? Pouncey had an answer for you.

I dnt see how my tweet was a mistake i visit with a lot of teams and dallas was a great time...

Well, you have to like his confidence. But I haven't seen a single mock draft project Pouncey to go anywhere in the top 10. So if he gets taken by the Cowboys in the first round, it will be a huge surprise. But I'll be the first one to give him his kudos.
