PLAYERS
Mike Pouncey
Round 1, Pick 15
Position: G
Class:  4Sr
School: Florida
Conference: Southeastern
HT: 6-5
WT: 303
40 Time: 5.12
Biography: Two-year starter at guard before moving to center as a senior. All-Conference selection in 2010. Brother Maurkice was selected in the first round of the 2009 draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Negatives: Struggled with snaps for most of last season when he played center. Ineffective in motion and not light on his feet. Lacks balance off the line of scrimmage.

Analysis: Pouncey is well-built and strong at the point of attack with the ability to annihilate defenders in one-on-one blocking. He does not possess the movement skills of his brother but will be a very productive in a system that limits his area responsibilities.

Projection: 1st
