After watching him play the entire 2014 season, it's easy to forget Pouncey had sustained a serious knee injury just one year before. Pouncey did more than just play every snap of last season, he also did it well enough to be voted first-team All-Pro for the third time in his five seasons, and it deserves to be noted that only one center is picked for the All-Pro team. Signing him to a contract extension last offseason was a shrewd move, because the Steelers secured a guy who is a difference-maker, both on the field at his position and in the locker room as a leader.

Versatile, tough, and nasty, Wallace was a nice find by the Steelers in 2013, and they did the right thing by keeping him with a new contract last offseason. He can play center and both guard spots, which makes him versatile enough to get a helmet on game days. Wallace and the Steelers are a nice fit.
