08:03 AM ET 04.07 | There's hope, there's optimism, there are guarantees, and there is this, something else entirely. Florida offensive lineman Mike Pouncey sent out an interesting message via Twitter after completing his visit with the Dallas Cowboys today. "Headed back to pittsburgh.... would be shocked if i wasnt in a dallas uniform nxt year! The draft is april 28th so we will see.... To all the steelers fans i would love to be playing for the steelers and if i had a choice i would but it isnt my choice." Pouncey's brother, Maurkice, went to Pittsburgh in the first round of last year's draft and was selected for the Pro Bowl. Mike Pouncey started at center and guard with the Gators. He had significant problems with the shotgun snap last season.

In Dallas JJ keeps us all in shock!

Prepare to be shocked, Mike...

I think a lot of "Cowboys" will be shocked not to be in a Cowboys uniform.

If he turns out like his brother, he'll be incredibly solid wherever he plays.

He must have had a good workout with the Cowboys to be that confident. Only thing is that he doesn't play a position of need for them. But there's no telling what JJ might do..

I doubt if Pouncey will be around when the Steelers draft, but I would love it if they traded up to get him. If he's anything like his brother, and from what I saw he is, he would definitely solidify the Steeler O line.

Could use an upgrade over Columbo (dude's a warrior but the body is giving out)... resign Free and if they hit with this kid we're good for the next 5-8 years at Tackle...

JJ scares the **** out of me come draft time. Since Jimmy left with the exception of just a few nice hits the drafts have been horrible.
