center


average 6 being drafted with 2 in top 100. As the NFL moves more into a passing league the shorter, bulldog types are falling away for taller centers with longer arms who excel at pass blocking..Centers have the highest wonderlic at any position.   very deep draft for dvelopmental starters with Feeney and Siragusa day one starters




1. Dan Feeney Indiana 6040/304 w/ 10.25" hand and 33. 3/8 arm 305 started 45 career games and has allowed just two sacks (3,278 snaps).elite character/brains and production 1st team All American 4 year starter  Richie Incognito type blocker/build strong hands arms..locks onto defender and it's over  very clean looks to be an all pro type player  similar to Cody Whitehair last year


2. Nico Siragusa San Diego St  6044 326 10 7/8 hands 32 3/4 arms 42 career starts heavy legged road grader PFF’s seventh-highest-graded guard solid combine smart, very articulate early starter


3. Pat Elfein Ohio St ..6'3 300  331/4  3X 1st team at guard moved to center to help his draft stock. every year get 3/4 players who get a WOW! out of me Elfein this year. Junkyard dog, mean run blocker..loves football and hitting. loves to finish. quick feet. solid not great in pass pro. all academic/team captain. ....only drawback a tad short for a center...tested poorly at combine


4. Ethan Pocic LSU 6'6 309 33 1/8  like don't love Pocic from LSU at a tad under 6'6 an outlier at the center position and it shows on the field. taller players struggle to collect their feet in tight areas. See that in his game..still talented just don't like outliers as a rule still very solid vs run and pass


5.Tyler Orlosky Pittsburgh 6'3 295 . 32 1/4  He gave up just one sack, one hit and four hurries during the entire 2015 season and his pass blocking efficiency of 99.0 ranked first in the nation among returning centers.per pff elite person/character  team leader very bright. downside avg athletically at best..thick trunk can't be bull rushed

6. Chase Roullier Wyoming 6'3 1/2 323  very smart solid center/also plays guard

7. J.J. Dielman Utah 6'5 300  32 1/4 played 3 years at RT econ major, team captain..injured senior season very aggressive with long arms  flashed at center before injury 4 position backup with starter potential if he can stay healthy

 8
, Kyle Fuller Baylor 6'4 310 34 arms   2 time  Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll selection nice size, runs wells,  occasionally falls of blocks good at pass pro because of long arms

9.Corey Levin Tennessee at Chattanooga 6'4 307 team captain, voted 2X conf olineman of the year all academic and elite combine played guard in college great at 2nd level blocks  reminds me of Kelce

10 Jon Toth Kentucky  6047/308 33 5/8 . majoring in mechanical engineering. very bright day one starter 4 year starter senior bowl   confident/self assured flexible athlete runs well stout vs run/bull rush  tested very poorly at combine


11 Gavin Andrews  C/OT/G Oregon St 6'4 1/2 339 econ major avg athlete with injury history but when he gets his hands on you it's over.

12.Cameron Tom Southern Miss 6'4 290 moves well flexible good looking athlete marketing major 3x all academic  needs weight/strength but nice developmental c/g


13Jay Guillermo 6'2 310 strong vs run finishes blocks...quick off the ball struggles with quickness vs pass pro sociology major 14.Deyshawn Bond Cinncinati  ok udfa
