Overview:

Mike Pouncey sure is riding a lot of his brothers success but he is still a good guard prospect. He’s great in pass protection and he’s very athletic. He can move well and is pretty dependable in pass protection. He needs to get better against the run though. He doesn’t appear to be very strong especially when drive blocking as he doesn’t generate much of a push. Strength isn’t everything though. His hand placement has to get better as he was holding onto defenders most of the time rather than blocking them back. He has all the tools, but needs to touch up his technique a bit.
