Michael Pouncey, 15th Pick 2011 NFL Draft

Pouncey, Mike Florida 6053 303 5.18

Miami Dolphins

Three-year starter. Twin brother of Steelers’ first round draft choice
Maurkice Pouncey. Our top guard or center, but is versatile enough
to back up every position on the offensive line. Some ball clubs
prefer him at guard and others at center. He struggled on short
snaps in the shotgun where every snap was an adventure early in
2010. Can turn the down defender with strong leg action and sure
hands. Good effort and body control. Effective downfield on the
Utah pass. Good in space to adjust and sustain his block. Powerful
blocker who can roll his hips to shock and control the down
defender. Too tall to bend and play with leverage at center. Feisty
and competitive. Plays with an ornery streak. Relishes contact. A
mauler on down blocks. Good hip and knee flexibility at guard
where he can change direction and move in on a moving target and
finish his block. Good effort to seal on the second level and block
downfield. Good lateral agility and quickness versus a slant move.
Explosive punch and use of hands. Gains control and locks out.
