RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
After an injury-plagued 2013 season that limited him to just one game, Pouncey remained healthy last season, playing in all 16 games. He will return to anchor the Steelers’ offensive line in 2015.
A healthy Pouncey will man center and anchor the Steelers' offensive line this season.
Pouncey returns as the starting center for a Steelers' offensive line that underachieved in 2012, resulting in one of the league's worst rushing attacks (96.1 ypg).
Pouncey has suffered left high-ankle sprains each of the past two seasons, but the Steelers believe his operation should lessen the chances of a third. His health is key, as Pittsburgh was forced to use 10 different starting lineups in 2011.
Pouncey is the future center of the franchise. However, with Justin Hartwig still in the mix, Pouncey will likely start at guard in his rookie season.
