Former Florida offensive linemen Maurkice and Mike Pouncey were among the eight first-round NFL draft picks at The Opening this weekend to lend their perspective to the top prospects in the nation.
Mike Pouncey, a former All-American at Florida and first-round pick in 2011 who started every game of his rookie year at center for the Dolphins, said he recognizes the importance of the past few days to the high school players.

"When I was in high school and the NFL guys came out, I just wanted to be around those guys," Pouncey said. "It was a dream come true, because those guys were living the dream."

Mike and twin brother Maurkice Pouncey, the Steelers' All-Pro center and 2010 first-rounder from Florida, worked with the offensive linemen throughout The Opening.

"We're not here to change anything their coaches have given them," Maurkice Pouncey said. "We're here to give them extra stuff to put in the toolbox."
