LAKELAND—The Pittsburgh Steelers made center Maurkice Pouncey the 18th-overall choice of the draft, selecting the 2009 Rimington Trophy winner higher than any UF center has been taken. Pouncey is the fifth Florida offensive lineman to be taken in the first round in draft history.

Pouncey watched the draft while flanked by Rob and Lisa Webster (his parents) at their home. Maurkice’s twin brother Mike and dozens of other friends and relatives were on hand for the suspense and ensuing celebration after he got a phone call from the general manager and head coach of the Steelers.
