Florida's Maurkice Pouncey turning pro

Florida center Maurkice Pouncey will declare for the NFL draft, ESPN's Joe Schad reports.

However, Pouncey told Schad that his twin brother, Mike Pouncey, will return to Florida for his senior season.

Maurkice Pouncey joins cornerback Joe Haden and tight end Aaron Hernandez as Florida players who'd already announced that they were turning pro. Defensive end Carlos Dunlap is also expected to follow suit.

Haden and Dunlap are both projected as first-rounders.
