2011 NFL Mock Draft, SBNBA Version: 21. Kansas City Chiefs- Mike Pouncey, Florida Gators

21. Kansas City Chiefs- Mike Pouncey, Florida Gators

The Kansas City Chiefs rose up from the depths of the AFC West last season, winning the division title for the first time since 2003. Now they will look to continue that success in 2011, starting with the NFL draft. And with the 21st overall pick, I think the Chiefs should choose offensive guard/center Mike Pouncey from Florida. 

With the possible retirement of 16 year veteran center Casey Wiegmann, Kansas city is going to need some more depth at the center position, and Pouncey is arguably the best interior offensive lineman in this year's draft. Pouncey is talented enough to play guard or tackle as well, and could bring some needed versatility to Kansas City's offensive line. His size, strength, and durability make him a great first round choice, and if he is anything like his twin brother Maurkice Pouncey, last years first round pick by the Pitssburgh Steelers, then the Chiefs will be in for a treat with Mike. 

Here's what NFL Network's Mike Mayock had to say about him:

"He’s remarkably similar to Maurkice. He didn’t test very well, but he can play all three interior positions on the offensive line, and he should do it in Year 1."

Some may think that this is too high for a center to be drafted, but when you're as talented as Mike Pouncey, it's hard to ignore in the first round.
