Mike Pouncey scouting report

Mike Pouncey OG Florida
Ht: 6’4″

Wt: 310

Impressive size and strength. Above average athleticism for an interior lineman. Looks very good when pulling and does a nice job getting to the second level. Quick off the snap. An aggressive blocker who finishes off defenders.
Struggled when switched to center in 2010, probably limited to playing guard in the pros. Has a tendency to play too high. Struggles against bigger defensive lineman, may have a hard time stopping the bull rush from nose tackles at the next level. Limited experience at any one position; played defensive line as freshman, guard as sophomore and junior and center as a senior.
Pouncey is one of the top interior linemen in this year’s class, but he’s received more hype than he probably deserves because of his last name. There’s a reason why his brother, Maurkice, turned pro last year while Mike stayed in school – its because Maurkice is just a better all-around player. Pouncey has the skills to start at guard, but probably won’t be an immediate Pro Bowler like his brother.
