2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Maurkice Pouncey, C, Florida

Pouncey was a mainstay of Florida's offensive line right from the start, which for him was in 2007. He played in 13 games as a freshman, starting 11 at right tackle, and he was a starting tackle for the Gators 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 last season, even though the Gators lost to Alabama in the SEC Championship. Florida's 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). Pouncey's honors included a spot on the All-SEC Freshman Team (2007) and the 2009 Rimington Trophy, which he won for being the nation's most outstanding center. Not surprisingly, he decided to bolt for the NFL following a stellar junior campaign. Pouncey has a rare combination of size and speed, ideal for anchoring the middle of an offensive line. He stands at 6'5', 318 pounds and has been clocked as fast as 5.09 in the 40-yard dash (he normally runs around 5.20, still extremely impressive for a man of his size). Guards and centers almost never go in the first round of the draft, but this guy could be an exception. He will fall no further than the middle of round two and he might just sneak into the middle to late first round.

Centers are hard to go in first/second rounds. Would have to awefully talented or a huge need by a team.
