Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Cesar Ruiz, Michigan
1. Ohio State image Harry Miller, C, Ohio State
Height: 6-4. Weight: 315.
Projected 40 Time: 5.3.
Projected Round (2023): 1-3.
View Ranking History

7/24/21: Miller broke into the starting lineup for the Buckeyes in 2020 and had a solid debut. He was a dependable run blocker and pass protector for Justin Fields. With Josh Myers moving on to the NFL, it will be interesting to see if Ohio State moves Miller to center. He has good size and strength for the position, and if he can play both interior spots, that will increase his value for the next level.





Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Lloyd Cushenberry, LSU
2. Georgia image Warren Ericson, C, Georgia
Height: 6-4. Weight: 305.
Projected 40 Time: 5.25.
Projected Round (2023): 2-4.
View Ranking History

7/24/21: Ericson was stuck behind Trey Hill for a few years, but started to work his way onto the field in 2020 at guard and center. Ericson has a quality skill set and the upside to improve as he gains experience during his junior and senior years.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Tyler Biadasz, Wisconsin
3. Texas A&M image Luke Matthews, C, Texas A&M
Height: 6-4. Weight: 315.
Projected 40 Time: 5.28.
Projected Round (2023): 3-5.
View Ranking History

7/24/21: 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 unlike his brother, Luke Matthews could be more of a candidate to play on the inside of the offensive line at the next level.

Luke Matthews broke into the starting lineup in 2019 after redshirting in 2018. He had a solid debut and showed the skill set to play at guard or center. An injury knocked him out of the 2020 season, but Matthews is receiving a lot of praise about his potential from Jimbo Fisher and other teammates as he takes over as the starting center.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Matt Hennessy, Temple
4. Michigan image Zak Zinter, C/OT, Michigan
Height: 6-6. Weight: 334.
Projected 40 Time: 5.2.
Projected Round (2023): 3-5.
View Ranking History

7/24/21: Zinter is a massive interior blocker who could play center for Michigan, but he may compete beter at guard in the NFL. Zinter could rise as he gains experience. With his size, he is a load as a run blocker, but improving his ability to handle speed rushers will be important for the NFL.





Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Nick Harris, Washington
5. USC image Justin Dedich, C, USC
Height: 6-2. Weight: 300.
Projected 40 Time: 5.3.
Projected Round (2023): 4-6.
View Ranking History

7/24/21: Dedich has played guard and center for the Trojans and should take on a bigger role as an upperclassman. He has size and length limitations, so center could be his best position to compete at in the NFL.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Trystan Colon-Castillo, Missouri
