Will Clapp, C/G, LSU
Height: 6-5. Weight: 309. Projected 40 Time: 5.20. Projected Round (2019): 2-3. 8/9/17: One could argue that Clapp was LSU's best interior lineman over Ethan Pocic in 2016. Clapp has dealt with a shoulder injury, but the plan is for him to be the starting center for the Tigers in 2017. He is a tough run blocker at the point of attack and reliable in pass protection.
Scott Quessenberry, C/G, UCLA
Height: 6-4. Weight: 314. Projected 40 Time: 5.29. Projected Round (2019): 2-3. 8/9/17: Quessenberry was UCLA's starting center in 2016 and did a nice job. He saw game action as a sophomore and freshman before missing the 2015 season. Quessenberry has the size to play guard or center in the NFL.
Michael Dieter, C/G/OT, Wisconsin
Height: 6-6. Weight: 329. Projected 40 Time: 5.30. Projected Round (2019): 2-3. 8/9/17: Entering fall camp, the plan was to move Dieter to left tackle to replace Ryan Ramczyk. Dieter enters the 2017 season having started as a freshman and sophomore. He had 11 starts at left guard and 16 starts at center before the planned move to left tackle. Dieter's size thoguh translates well to guard for the NFL. It will be interesting to see if he has the feet, arm length, quickness, and athleticism to excel at left tackle.
Alec Eberle, C, Florida State
Height: 6-4. Weight: 300. Projected 40 Time: 5.11. Projected Round (2019): 2-4. 8/9/17: Eberle was a rock on the inside of the offensive line for the Seminoles in 2016 with an impressive sophomore campaign. He opened holes for Dalvin Cook and was generally reliable in pass protection. It was Eberle's first season as a full-time starter, so he could be even better as a junior in 2017. As a redshirt freshman in 2015, he started at center for the last six games of the season.
Bradley Bozeman, C, Alabama
Height: 6-5. Weight: 319. Projected 40 Time: 5.24. Projected Round (2019): 2-4. 8/9/17: Bozeman was Alabama's replacement for Ryan Kelly and put together an impressive season as the starting center. Bozeman has good size and strength, and shows the ability to develop into a good technician. He could be even better in 2017 due to having a year of starting experience. Bozeman was a backup as a sophomore and freshman, but made two starts in 2014 when Kelly was out with an injury.
Ross Pierschbacher, C/G, Alabama
Height: 6-4. Weight: 303. Projected 40 Time: 5.24. Projected Round (2019): 2-4. 8/9/17: Pierschbacher is a tough run blocker who opened a lot of holes for Bo Scarbrough, Damien Harris, Josh Jacobs and Jalen Hurts in 2016. Pierschbacher has has played left guard and center for the Crimson Tide. He is a plus run blocker and should continue to improve as a pass protector. With Bradley Bozeman at center, Pierschbacher is likely to be a guard for Alabama, although he could get center consideration by the NFL.
