What was his brother's?

Hopefully he starts to drop towards the end of Round 1 into Round 2. People are going to start to catch on that Pouncey II IS NOT Pouncey I. There is a reason Maurkice left first. he is a better player. Being twins is not a prediction of NFL success.

I'd be groovy with him in the second round. Maybe even move up to the middle of the round for him.
But taking him at 31 would be a luxury we and most teams can't afford.

Here are the Pouncey I measureables from last year

I found one source that said he had 32.4" arms according to ESPN site

Short arms don't seem to be hurting Maurkice.

Someone will pick Mikey before our turn in the first round.

I agree someone will pick Pouncey II before our pick and I think they will realize very early they aren't getting Pouncey I.

IMO Pouncey I's success has inflated the perceived value of Pouncey II. If not for his brother's success Pouncey II would be rated as a early to mid Round 2 pick.

I've said this before and I'll say it again, Mike was very well thought of at UF by his coaches. I KNOW that many of them considered him to be a better player then Maurkice.

exactly the same length as his twin brother's arms...too bad we can't measure the size of his heart because I've seen Mike play and I'll bet you it would have been seriously big.

hopefully that and weighing in 10 lbs lighter than expected at barely over 300 lbs will be enough to drop Mike Pouncey down to #31 in the 1st round. :tt2

He gave it the old "gator" stretch so he drops to #31.

Their side by side stats are almost identical except for their position (C/OG). 5.25 and 5.29 40............both came rated #1 in their positions. We need both!

Mike Pouncey’s goals: Play center, get selected higher than his brother

The comparisons are inevitable: Mike Pouncey looks exactly like his brother Maurkice if you forget about the tattoos.

Their style of play isn’t as similar — depending on who you ask. Doug Farrar of Yahoo! Sports says Mike Pouncey is more of a piledriving guard than Maurkice, with unique power. Maurkice is more of a technician that seems to better handle the intricacies of the center position.

Mike doesn’t see it that way. He said Friday at the NFL Scouting Combine that he wants to play center at the next level. And he thinks he’s a lot like his twin brother.

“I think I block in the open field better, but like I said we’re the same player,” Pouncey said during an entertaining media session.

His goal is to get taken higher than No. 18 in the draft (where Maurkice was taken) or he’ll never hear the end of it. That goal seems rather high, but Mike says a few teams have told him he’s a better prospect than Maurkice. Most draft analysts disagree.

Pouncey confirmed he has met with Mike Tomlin and John Harbaugh here. He’ll participate in all drills except for lifting and said that skipping the Senior Bowl was a “business decision.”

Steelers fans hoping for a Pouncey brothers combo platter shouldn’t get their hopes up yet, according to Mike.

“It’s not looking too good. But there’s free agency in the NFL.”

He's the consensus number one interior lineman - regardless of being Maurkice's twin or not. I believe that the success of Maurkice has definitely helped his brother out, but it hasn't lifted him from the second round into the first. I'm not even one of these draft gurus, but I can tell with 100% certainty you are undervaluing Mike Pouncey.

I coached against these guys in high school and I'm a die-hard Gator fan. I've seen them play for a long time and they are equal in almost every way that counts.

Another Pouncey unlikely for Steelers in NFL Draft

By Scott Brown, PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Saturday, February 26, 2011


INDIANAPOLIS — Steelers coaches who still can't distinguish between Maurkice and Mike Pouncey — they only look alike, sound alike and share the same mannerisms — probably won't have to do so on a regular basis in the coming seasons.

Mike Pouncey, all 6 feet 5 inches, 303 pounds of him, said Friday he does not expect the Steelers to select him in the NFL Draft in April.

Pouncey hopes to play center in the NFL, and the Steelers appear to be set there for the next decade with his identical twin. What is more problematic to the Steelers drafting Pouncey, who played guard at Florida before moving to center for his senior season: He figures to be gone before the Steelers pick 31st overall.

He has to be, he said with an easy laugh similar to Maurkice's, for the sake of sibling rivalry.

And if he isn't?

"I'd never hear the end of it," Mike Pouncey said.

The Steelers know it is a long shot that Mike, who is about two minutes older than Maurkice, will fall to them in the first round.

That hasn't stopped them from doing their due diligence a year after they took Maurkice with the 18th overall pick.

They interviewed Mike Pouncey on Thursday night, and he said offensive line coach Sean Kugler put him through a similar whiteboard session that his brother experienced a year ago.

Kugler diagrammed plays on a board and then erased it and had Pouncey draw up the same plays.

"They were very impressed," Pouncey said when asked how he did.

The Steelers have a need at guard but probably won't get a chance to consider Pouncey with their first-round pick because of how well his brother — who was named to the Pro Bowl — played as a rookie.

"I've never seen a situation with twin brothers so similar as players," Steelers director of football operations Kevin Colbert said. "We have a good indication of what that player will be like because of Maurkice, so we probably know a little bit more about him just because of our evaluation of Maurkice. I'm sure he's the same type of person that his brother is."

The two are nearly impossible to tell apart — at least to the untrained eye — making it no surprise that many people, including some Steelers coaches, mistook Mike for Maurkice when the two were in Dallas for the Super Bowl.

The Pounceys have won three state championships and a national championship together. But it's likely that a pursuit of a Super Bowl title will be separate endeavors for the brothers who talk to each other daily.

"Yeah, we talked about the chances (of playing together again)," Mike Pouncey said. "It's not looking too good, but there's free agency in the NFL, so you never know."
