As far as the rest of the 1st round it's tough to tell. I think Pouncey can go anywhere from #14 to 25ish and probably will likely go a bit later (as guards do) than I suspect but it's tough to predict who a team would go with if there isn't somewhere there who fits a relative need. Sure Miami could go Ingram like everyone is predicting but part of the reason for their struggles in running the ball is their interior O-Line is crap and Pouncey is IMO a better more long term prospect than any RB in the 1st these days. RB's can be had virtually anywhere even as undrafted FA's.
I hope Newton goes #1 and if nothing more than ceiling gets him drafted there it wouldn't be surprising to me, in fact yeah I suspect it. Alot of teams have the mindset that if they are stuck picking 1st might as well go QB and ceiling. No question about it in my mind Newton has the ceiling he just isn't very likely to reach it, but if he does you have a big strong playmaker at the most important position on the field.
