Who says Baalke won't be around next year to make the picks? I mean he has lasted this long. Walter said so himself, that Baalke has incriminating photos of the York family doing some scandlous things.. that's the only way to explain how he's lasted this long to begin with. What will change in 2017 ?
Experience at both guard/center - can play either position in NFL
Still has potential
Might not be a natural knee bender
Footwork needs to be polished
Seems to lack pass protection awareness
Rough transition from Florida's unorthodox blocking scheme
Technique can get sloppy
Doesn't always finish blocks
Summary: Pouncey is a talented player and should be an immediate starter in the league, but I don't think he is a better prospect than Alex Mack last year. Pouncey is a bit overhyped. His technique tends to get sloppy in the fourth quarter and I have concerns with him in pass protection at the next level against more athletic defensive tackles in a more complicated scheme. Pouncey will come off the board in the top 30 picks and could go as high as No. 18 to Pittsburgh or No. 19 to Atlanta. I have a low first-round grade on Pouncey.
Player Comparison: Andre Gurode. Gurode has a good skill set for a center with prototypical height and athleticism. He's a well-rounded player.
