Mike Pouncey
NFL Draft Scouting Report

Guard

Florida


College Position: Guard
School: Florida
Grade: Senior
Height: 6-4
Weight: 313
Birthdate: 07-24-1989
Draft Projection: Second
Overall Rank: 43
NFL Draft Position (Rank): Guard (3)

Draft Result

Drafted in the 2011 Draft by the Miami Dolphins in the 1st round with the #15 pick.
The Dolphins choose to upgrade their line play with Pouncey, the best interior lineman in the draft. With the ability to play either guard or center, Pouncey gives Miami options up front. A bit of a surprise that they don't go for a quarterback or running back, but Pouncey should be a good player for a long time.
