Steelers All 91: C Maurkice Pouncey



All 91 is a Pittsburgh Steelers Now series profiling each of the 91 members of the Steelers 2019 training camp roster.

53 • Maurkice Pouncey, 10th-year center

Last year: Started all 16 games for the Steelers at center for the third time in his career. Signed a two-year contract extension this spring that will keep him with Pittsburgh through 2021.

Stats: According to Pro Football Focus, the Steelers allowed the least quarterback pressure in 2018, with Pittsburgh’s passers under the gun just 24% of the time.

Accolades, Highlights:

Was named to his seventh Pro Bowl in 2018 and was a second-team All-Pro for the third time.

Camp outlook: The Steelers return essentially their entire offensive line from 2018, with right tackle Matt Feiler going from fill-in to starter and Pouncey will continue snapping to fellow vet Ben Roethlisberger. Nothing to see here.

Projected role: Pouncey will start and should be a favorite to make an eight Pro Bowl if he stays healthy.
