  1. Trey Hill*, C, Georgia
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 330.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.34.
    Projected Round (2021): 1-2.

    2/17/20: Hill was phenomenal for Georgia in 2019. He is a tough run blocker and shows the ability to handle pass-rushing defensive tackles one on one. Taking on a future top-10 pick in Auburn's Derrick Brown, Hill was very impressive, and team sources have said Hill was impossible not to notice when they scouted Andrew Thomas, Isaiah Wilson, and Solomon Kindley for the 2020 NFL Draft. Those scouts feel Hill could be an early-rounder and the top center in his draft class. Hill is big for the position and moves well for a big blocker. He could also move to guard in the NFL.




  2. Creed Humphrey*, C, Oklahoma
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 312.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.10.
    Projected Round (2021): 1-2.

    2/17/20: Humphrey became a starter as a redshirt freshman in 2018 and had an impressive debut for Oklahoma. He anchored the middle of the Sooners' line and was a steady producer at the point of attack. That trend continued in 2019 as Humphrey was superb for Oklahoma with reliable pass protection and productive run blocking. Humphrey has good size to him to go with athleticism. He could be a riser as he has a lot of upside.


  3. Alec Lindstrom*, C, Boston College
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 290.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.28.
    Projected Round (2021): 2-3.
    8/12/19: If the name sounds familiar, that's because Alec Lindstrom is the younger brother of Atlanta Falcons guard Chris Lindstrom, a first-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Alec Lindstrom took a medical redshirt in 2017. A year later, he was mostly a backup center, but then in 2019 as a redshirt sophomore, Lindstrom played well as the center for Boston College. He has quality height and length for center, but could use more weight for the NFL. That could come along as he ages. Alec and Chris' father, also named Chris, played in the NFL and coached them in high school. Hence, the brothers are polished and more developed in technique than the average player.


  4. Landon Dickerson, C, Alabama
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 308.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.22.
    Projected Round (2021): 2-4.
    2/17/20: Dickerson is a transfer from Florida State who had a strong 2019 season for Alabama. Over his first season with the Crimson Tide, Dickerson was a solid run blocker and dependable in the passing game. He has good size to him with more length than most centers. Dickerson could be a riser as a senior.




  5. James Empey*, C, BYU
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 300.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.22.
    Projected Round (2021): 3-5.
    2/17/20: Empey was a good center for BYU in the 2019 season. He was dependable in the ground game and in pass protection. It was his second season as a starter after earning the starting center spot for his redshirt freshman season. His father Mike has coached the offensive line and tight ends at BYU.


  6. Michal Menet, C, Penn State
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 313.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.24.
    Projected Round (2021): 4-6.

  7. Matt Allen, C, Michigan State
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 303.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.18.
    Projected Round (2021): 4-6.

  8. Jarrett Patterson, C, Notre Dame
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 300.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.19.
    Projected Round (2021): 4-6.



  9. Jimmy Morrissey, C, Pittsburgh
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 305.

    Projected Round (2021): 5-7.

  10. Josh McCauley, C, Arizona
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 292.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.29.
    Projected Round (2021): 5-7.

  11. Jaelin Fisher, C, Charlotte
