When the Pittsburgh Steelers selected University of Florida C Maurkice Pouncey, it shouldn't have come to a surprise.
Widely believed to be the top center available for this year's draft, Pouncey is also capable of playing guard.
Pouncey may be asked to back up starting C Justin Hartwig this season, but he'll eventually supplant the veteran interior lineman.
It's also possible that Pouncey competes for playing time this season against starting G Trai Essex.- Adam Caplan
