2011 NFL Draft: Center Rankings


The top 2011 center prospects available for the 2011 NFL Draft in the order in which I believe they will be drafted.

Combine 40 Times: As I explained on Twitter (@walterfootball), the official Combine 40 times are incorrect, and they've been proven false via the NFL Network's simul-cam.

For the 40 times, I use the NFL Network's unofficial times, which are more accurate. NFL teams use their own timed 40s anyway, so the official 40s are meaningless.

  1. Stefen Wisniewski, C/G, Penn State - Scouting Report
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 313.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.13.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.26.
    Pro Day 40 Time: .
    Benchx225: 30. Arm: 33.
    Projected Round (2011): 2-4.

    3/17/11: Stefen Wisniewski stood on his Combine numbers. He said that scouts have told him that he has a chance to go in the first round but will probably be a second-round pick.

    1/25/11: Write-ups for these rankings will be added later; there were "personnel complications" on the site, which is why these rankings haven't been updated in a while.

    10/2/10: Wisniewski's best position is center and he is a great fit for zone-blocking schemes. He is tough, plays with terrific technique and does a great job winning the leverage battle.

    4/4/10: Had a great year, qualifying for the All-Big Ten First Team.

    2/10/09: Despite missing some time with a bum knee, Stefen Wisniewski was still voted to the All-Big Ten Second Team.



  2. Kristofer O'Dowd, C, USC
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 304.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.07.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.15.
    Pro Day 40 Time: .
    Benchx225: 31. Arm: 32 1/2.
    Projected Round (2011): 4-6.

    1/28/11: It's sad to see Kris O'Dowd struggle like this. He's been completely overmatched this week. I hope there's some sort of reason for this like an undisclosed injury.

    1/27/11: Kris O'Dowd just doesn't look good. He's been overmatched in nearly every one-on-one drill this week.

    1/26/11: Kris O'Dowd had a poor practice Tuesday afternoon, looking overmatched in the one-on-one drills.

    10/2/10: O'Dowd is an extremely strong center who can maul in the run game, but the medical could really hurt his draft stock.

    4/4/10: Was a first-team All-Pac Team member despite the fact that he was playing with a torn labrum in 2009.

  3. Brandon Fusco, C, Slippery Rock
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 316.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.20.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.09.
    Pro Day 40 Time: .
    Benchx225: . Arm: 33 3/4.
    Projected Round (2011): 4-6.

    4/14/11: Brandon Fusco has generated a ton of interest from the Eagles and Giants.

  4. Jake Kirkpatrick, C, TCU
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 300.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.09.
    Combine 40 Time: DNP.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 5.32.
    Benchx225: 25. Arm: 31 3/8.
    Projected Round (2011): 4-6.

    4/4/10: Never played football until his senior year in high school. Jake Kirkpatrick made the All-Mountain West Second Team.



  5. Tim Barnes, C, Missouri
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 300.

    Combine 40 Time: .
    Pro Day 40 Time: .
    Benchx225: . Arm: .
    Projected Round (2011): 5-7.



  6. Jason Kelce, G, Cincinnati
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 280.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.19.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.89.
    Pro Day 40 Time: DNP.
    Benchx225: . Arm: 32 1/2.
    Projected Round (2011): 5-7.

    Pro Day 40 Time: DNP.

    Projected Round (2011): 5-7.

    3/12/11: Alex Linnenkohl had 31 bench reps at his Pro Day after notching 24 at the Combine.

    10/2/10: I've been impressed with Linnenkohl on tape. He seems to be a fluid athlete laterally especially in pass protection, but it takes him a while to get to the second level. He looks like a developmental starter.

I don't know why but Ryan Bartholomew's great combine has me scared, thinking he's the next Mike Mamula.

I could be wrong...

Taylor Boggs should be on this list he is one of the best centers i have seen play even though he is coming from a D2 school (Humboldt State). If you have not watch him play Look up is his highlight video on youtube.
