    According to B/R, Mike Pouncey is the second best center in the entire NFL

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...enters/page/35

    Pass Block

    46/50

    A top-level athlete at the position, Mike Pouncey (6'5", 303 pounds, two seasons) can do it all. One of the best strengths to his game is his ability to read and recognize blitzes pre-snap. Once the ball is in play, Pouncey is exceptional at anchoring to hold his ground. He has a quick first move and can jump to his base without losing leverage. Hes strong enough to stand his ground and rarely gets moved back into the quarterback.
    Run Block

    41/50

    Pouncey is a strong moving center in the run game. Off the snap, he does well to angle block to the left or right, and when attacking defenders from the side, hes very good at driving and sealing off lanes. When asked to simply take on a defender head-up, Pouncey can sometimes struggle with leverage in the run game. Hes better at holding his ground than moving players backward.
    Overall

    87/100

    One of the most complete centers in the NFL, Pouncey does a great job for the Dolphins no matter the down or distance. For him to take the next step and become an elite player, all he needs is more time and more experience.

    As you can tell, they graded these players on a scale to 100.

    Your thoughts?

    I'm not sure where I'd rank him, but I'm quite pleased with him based on where he was drafted. So far.

    I'm surprised people still aren't complaining about the Ireland Pouncey Pick!

    It was a safe pick. Safe isn't necessarily bad. But if you're safe most/all of the time it leads to a solid but unspectacular roster.

    What happens if one of the top O-Line prospects drops to #12? Would people be upset with that being the pick?

    I still think its way too early to take a center and there are some very good centers that were drafted in second round but he has been a good player
