The Steelers agreed to terms with C-OG Maurkice Pouncey, their first-round pick, on a five-year contract  Friday, the club announced. Pouncey, who starred at Florida, appears to have a better chance of starting at right guard than at center as a rookie. 

The 6-3, 304-pound Pouncey won the Rimington Trophy, which is awarded to the top center in Division I-A, in 2009, becoming only the fourth junior to win the award.

In PFW's 2010 Draft Preview, personnel analyst Nolan Nawrocki wrote of Pouncey, "The best center to enter the draft in some time, Pouncey is a powerful, athletic, big-framed mauler who plays to his size and has proven his ability at the highest level of college football."

Pouncey, 21, is the first center the Steelers have selected in Round One since 1937.
