Explanation of Player Grading System


The Breakdown

Pouncey is a talented and experienced offensive lineman in the toughest conference in college football. In 2010, he’ll make the switch from guard to center, filling in for his twin brother, Maurkice, who was drafted in the first round by the Pittsburgh Steelers in this year’s draft. Pouncey will have to prove that he’ll be able to successfully make the transition to center but his instincts and awareness make him an ideal candidate for the move.
