  1. Trey Hill, C, Georgia
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 330.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.34.
    Projected Round (2022): 1-2.
    View Ranking History


    7/6/20: 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. Luke Matthews*, C/G, Texas A&M
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 315.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.28.
    Projected Round (2022): 1-3.
    View Ranking History


    7/6/20: Matthews is the latest in the family line stemming from Hall of Fame offensive lineman Bruce Matthews. Luke Matthews followed brother Jake to Texas A&M, but unlikes his brother, Luke Matthews could be more of a candidate to play on the inside of the offensive line. Matthews broke into the starting lineup in 2019 after redshirting in 2018. He had a solid debut with the skill set to be a guard or center. Over his junior and senior years, Matthews could develop into an early-round prospect.

    Height: 6-5. Weight: 312.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.28.
    Projected Round (2022): 2-4.
    View Ranking History


    7/6/20: Myers earned the starting center position in 2019 as a sophomore and had an excellent debut for the Buckeyes. He has good size with length for an interior blocker and was tough at the point of attack. Myers was an effective run blocker for J.K. Dobbins and a steady pass protector for Justin Fields. Now that Myers has a year of experience, he could be even better as a junior and may end up being one of the top center prospects in his draft class.

  4. Creed Humphrey, C, Oklahoma
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 312.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.1.
    Projected Round (2022): 3-5.
    View Ranking History


    7/6/20: 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 dependable for Oklahoma with reliable pass protection and productive run blocking. Humphrey has good size to him. Team sources say he could be a mid-rounder who becomes a starting center in the NFL, but they don't see him having an early-round skill set entering the 2020 season.

    7/6/20: 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.
