Maurkice Pouncey   #53 C

Height: 6-4   Weight: 304   Age: 28

Born: 7/24/1989 Ardmore , OK

College: Florida

Experience: 9th season

High School: Lakeland HS [FL]





Draft 2010

Pick No.18

Selected By: Pittsburgh Steelers

Round: 1

Pick (Overall): 18 (18)

Pick Analysis: Pouncey is a versatile lineman that has lined up at both center and guard. He is a squatty, quick-footed athlete that can roll his hips to redirect and adjust to movement or sink his hips to hunker down against a powerful bull rush by big nose tackles. He is quick with his first step after the snap and quick to get a fit with his hands but will let his weight get too far forward at times. Pouncey had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder in May of 2009 and durability could become a concern down the road. He should be quick to see the playing field thanks to his versatility.
