Mike Pouncey Scouting Report
|Height & Weight:||6'5 - 320 lbs.|
2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Mike Pouncey, OG, Florida
Pouncey played on the offensive line in high school, but he was moved to defensive tackle during his freshman season at Florida. A versatile lineman, Pouncey switched back to offensive guard prior to his sophomore campaign and, along with twin brother Maurkice, he has been a mainstay of Florida's offensive line ever since. Pouncey helped pave the way for a dynamic offense in 2008 en route to an undefeated season and National Championship. More of the same continued this season, even though 2009 ended in disappointment with a loss to Alabama in the SEC Championship. The Gator offense finished first in the conference in an incredible amount of categories, including total yards (5,751, or 442.4 per game), rushing yards (2,928), and rushing yards per carry (5.6). He was a Second Team All-SEC selection by the conference's coaches in 2008 and this season he was named to the All-SEC First Team by both the coaches and the media. Pouncey stands at 6'5 and 320 pounds, perhaps ever so slightly bigger than his brother, who has starred at center for the Gators. Mike is not quite as agile as Maurkice; Mike has been clocked at 5.29 in the 40-yard dash and generally runs in the 5.3s. He does not have the pass-blocking skills necessary to be an elite tackle in the NFL, but he has the ability to be a major force in the running game at guard. As for whether the junior will enter the 2010 NFL Draft, look no further than his mother, Lisa Webster. "They're staying put unless they hear first or second round," Webster said Mike and Maurkice. "That would change everything. They know they have my blessing to go if it's in the first or second round." That very well could mean the end of the Pouncey brothers in Gainesville, as they should be off the board no later than the end of the second round if they decide to leave early.
