The 2009 Rimington Trophy winner enjoyed plenty of success at Florida, playing in 41 games, while starting 39 of those matchups...Was a First Team All-SEC member this past season, while picking up All-American Second-Team honors...The junior is extremely athletic and has outstanding footwork...Has everything needed to be an outstanding center at the next level...Is quick and agile, but is also very strong and physical...Extremely smart and understands the position well...Has great instincts and an awareness for the game and plays the angles extremely well...Does tend to lunge at times during a game,leading to missed blocks...Will have to learn a more pro style offense since most of the snaps at Florida were out of shotgun...Pouncey's physical style is the right fit for the Steelers.
