2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Mike Pouncey

Mike Pouncey, OL, Florida (6'4" 317 lbs.)

Positives: He's an athletic big man who has pretty good strength. He holds up reasonably well versus bigger bull rushing nose tackles. Very solid pass protector and good initial quickness to stay with blitzing linebackers. He works hard to finish blocks.

Negatives: He needs to work on his consistency. Sometimes he's too slow to recgonize stunts and blitzes. Has a tendacy to lunge and lose balance. He would like to play center in the NFL, like his twin brother Maurkice who plays for the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, he struggled at times snapping the ball, especially in the shotgun. Scouts believe he'll fit in better at guard.
