Bleacher Report Article Has Ma. Pouncey as 16th overall Center in NFL

What a joke! Our Pouncey is ranked under the likes of Dominic "Pancaked" Raiola from Detroit and St. Louis' no-name back-up center.. in addition to others. Here are his Grades:

Pass Block

39/50

Maurkice Pouncey (6'4", 304 pounds, three seasons) is a high-level athlete with exceptional quickness off the snap. You won’t find many defenders who can beat him to the hole. Pouncey is quick to snap up and get set, but where he struggles most is in individual blocking. He’s at his best combination-blocking with a guard, as he can get walked back and run over when he’s on his own. When Pouncey uses his natural leverage, he’s almost impossible to move. He has to learn to keep that power base, though.

Run Block

35/50

In the run game, Pouncey is quick enough to explode off the ball and get into defenders, but his strength to drive them off the line is lacking. He’ll stand up a defender and allow cutbacks, but he’s not driving open any holes.

Overall

74/100

Pouncey’s reputation as a blocker is better than his actual performance the last two seasons. While he has the athletic ability to be one of the best in the game, he’s missing on too many blocks and failing to make a real impact on others.
