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.
*JAN UPDATE* WITH TRADES . RD2&3 order is random for trades that usually happen. A few players have declared for draft.This does not follow my power rankings as that changes weekly. Used cbssports rankings.
With all the underclassmen officially declaring decided to update the mock draft I did before. Feel free to say how terrible it is, I've seen some questionable ones. Will make one post -super bowl, pre combine, then a bunch of post combine/freeagency/pre draft.
