Which centers do the Pouncey twins (Maurkice, left, Mike, right) most resemble from NFL history?

Who doesn’t like to be the center of attention?

The following seven players in the seventh part of this 12-part throwback comparison series have gotten our attention. In case you're wondering, these performers are in no particular order.

You probably know the drill by now. Here are some of the best centers in the league today, including all four pivots originally named to the Pro Bowl in 2013 back in December.

The criteria are multifaceted, and one legend doesn’t fit all. We are talking style as much as anything, because after all, the eye test is still the best pop quiz ever, but other factors will be taken into account when making comparisons.

One reminder: This is not a ranking of the six best centers in the NFL. It’s some of the best players at their position and who they remind us of from the distant or not-too distant past.

Finally, our thanks to Pro Football Focus (subscription required) for some of their statistical support.
