Mike Pollak, Arizona State
Height: 6-3. Weight: 299. Projected 40 Time: 4.92. Combine 40 Time: 4.98. Arm: 31 1/2. Benchx225: . Projected Round: 3.
Probably the most impressive center at the combine; may have passed Steve Justice as the top guy at the position.
Steve Justice, Wake Forest
Height: 6-3. Weight: 293. Projected Projected 40 Time: 5.06. Combine 40 Time: 5.22. Arm: 31 1/2. Benchx225: . Projected Round: 3-4.
Named a preseason All-American for the 2007 season. Will battle it out with Mike Pollak as the top center in this class.
John Sullivan, Notre Dame
Height: 6-3. Weight: 301. Projected 40 Time: 5.05. Combine 40 Time: 5.40. Arm: 31 1/8. Benchx225: 21. Projected Round: 4.
John Sullivan really struggled at Michigan, taking responsibility for a few high snaps. Sullivan can also play guard.
Doug Legursky, Marshall
Height: 6-3. Weight: 311. 40 Time: 5.22. Projected Round: 4-5.
You're getting a rock if you take Legursky; he has started every game of his collegiate career.
Cody Wallace, Texas A&M
Height: 6-4. Weight: 296. Projected 40 Time: 5.22. Combine 40 Time: 5.27. Arm: 33 3/8. Benchx225: 26. Projected Round: 4-5.
Solid number of bench press reps considering his arm length.
Jamey Richard, Buffalo
Height: 6-4. Weight: 301. Projected 40 Time: 5.22. Combine 40 Time: 5.22. Benchx225: . Projected Round: 5.
Two-year starter for Buffalo. One of many MAC centers eligible for the 2008 Draft.
Drew Miller, Florida
Height: 6-5. Weight: 297. Projected 40 Time: 5.07. Pro Day 40 Time: 5.03. Benchx225: 34. Projected Round: 5-6.
Drew Miller wasn't invited to the combine (and I have no idea why), but he had a solid Pro Day, posting solid numbers in the bench, 40, vertical (30 inches) and broad jump (9-3). That should cement his status as a middle-round interior line prospect.
Started as an offensive tackle, played guard in 2006 and slated to move to center in 2007. His versatility will be enticing for some NFL teams.
Kory Lichtensteiger, Bowling Green
Height: 6-2. Weight: 298. Projected 40 Time: 5.16. Combine 40 Time: 5.19. Arm: 30 7/8. Benchx225: . Projected Round: 5-6.
No one played well against Sedrick Ellis, but Kory Lichtensteiger looked so helpless, it was as if a 12-year-old were blocking USC's monstrous nose tackle.
Arguably the best offensive lineman ever to play at Bowling Green. Lichtensteiger was in the middle of a line ranked second in rushing and third in fewest sacks allowed in MAC play.
Fernando Velasco, Georgia
Height: 6-4. Weight: 328. 40 Time: 5.06. Projected Round: 6.
Huge for a center, but definitely not slow. Raw - Fernando Velasco played guard last year.
Robbie Powell, Purdue
Height: 6-5. Weight: 307. 40 Time: 5.08. Projected Round: 6.
His size is much better than some of the prospects listed below him.
Matt Spanos, USC
Height: 6-5. Weight: 305. Projected 40 Time: 5.17. Combine 40 Time: 5.50. Pro Day 40 Time: 5.28. Benchx225: 20. Projected Round: 6.
No idea why Matt Spanos was invited to the combine over Drew Miller or Fernando Velasco.
Robbie Krutilla, Western Michigan
Height: 6-3. Weight: 308. 40 Time: 5.26. Projected Round: 6-7.
One of the larger centers in this draft class. Started every game the past three years.
Jeff Cavender, Boise State
Height: 6-1. Weight: 303. Projected 40 Time: 5.25. Pro Day 40 Time: 5.44. Benchx225: 24. Projected Round: 7.
Yet another cog in Boise State's incredible offensive line. Cavender can play guard and tackle, but is more suited to be a center at the next level.
Derrick Morse, Miami
Height: 6-3. Weight: 325. Projected 40 Time: 5.20. Pro Day 40 Time: 5.22. Arm: . Benchx225: 24. Projected Round: 7.
A natural guard who is moving to center for the 2007 season. Has knee problems.
John Masters, Michigan State
Height: 6-4. Weight: 285. 40 Time: 5.16. Projected Round: FA.
Started only three games in 2006.
Juan Garica, Washington
Height: 6-3. Weight: 315. 40 Time: 5.11. Projected Round: FA.
Played every single snap in 2006. But that doesn't mean he's durable - Juan Garcia missed the two years before that.
Isaiah Wiggins, Illinois State
Height: 6-3. Weight: 303. Projected 40 Time: 5.19. Pro Day 40 Time: 5.23. Benchx225: 20. Projected Round: FA.
Can play almost every position up front.
i like quite a few of your picks, but as a 49er fan your first sentence for their pick doesn't make sense. they have spent 1st rnd picks in consecutive years on 3-4 DE's (Armstead and Buckner). and with Saleh as the new DC, they may switch to a eagle down D that only uses 2 DT, sometimes they move speed rushers inside, so that would clog up the depth chart adding a 3rd Interior DL. They desperately need OLine help, and pretty much everything else, but DLine isnt really a need, it would just be nice to have another one. Not saying they wont pick Allen, just saying its not a dyer need right away. Good mock tho, dont mean to sound too negative!
Besides left tackle, running back is the only position the Browns do not need an upgrade. I don't care how good Fournette is, they can't afford to use a first rounder on him when they have holes at so many other positions. Also they already cut Josh McCown and Tramon Williams.
