2011 NFL Draft: Redskins Will Host Florida Center Mike Pouncey For Workout

If the name Mike Pouncey sounds familiar, that's because his brother Maurkice Pouncey (more specifically his ankle injury) became the biggest story leading up to the Super Bowl this year. Pouncey was a rookie center for the Steelers, and played well enough to earn a Pro Bowl berth. Now his brother Mike is entering the draft, and the Redskins are reportedly interested in him, via Hogs Haven.

The Redskins hold the tenth overall pick in the draft, and that is much higher than Pouncey has gone in Mock Drafts around the Internet. And that is much higher than most teams are willing to draft a center or guard. But it does show that the Redskins are serious about trying to upgrade their offensive line, and that should be some welcome news.
