Miami Dolphins Select Mike Pouncey With 15th Overall Pick

With the 15th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Miami Dolphins selected Florida guard/center Mike Pouncey.


Pouncey, the twin brother of last year's Pittsburgh Steelers first round pick, is a perfect pick by a franchise with the fingerprints of Bill Parcels. He's a big offensive lineman who has good feet and good hands. The Dolphins invested another high-value pick in the offensive line because they love to run. Miami had some interior line problems and Pouncey will help fix that issue.

Another "safe" pick, but you need safe when it comes to investing first round money into these prospects. The Dolphins need to add a young running back to their backfield, but whoever is back there will not have a weak offensive line to blame. Miami's got the potential to be one of the best offensive lines in the league.
