I agree with what you say, and there's no getting around the fact that Pouncey would be a reach in the top 10 no matter how elite of a prospect he turned out to be. At the same, don't expect Walton or Tennant to solve our woes at that position long-term, because they're not the overly powerful players required to man up against the big nose tackles in our division.
All things considered, Spiller is the pick I want
, even if there are greater needs. Spiller as much as anyone else in this draft can get things done on his own; he's a very special prospect in that sense. Just look at the rest of the talent on the Clemson offense that surrounded him last year.
