2021 NFL Prospect Rankings: Centers

Alabama

Projected Round: 1/2

Ourlads' Snippet - He is an emotional leader and physically dominating presence inside that best fits into a power blocking scheme. His size, country-power, and attitude make him a magnet to energy and constant juice in the trenches. He is a true leader that impacts a team with his actions and consistency. A major red flag, however, revolves around his health. For the fourth time in five years, Dickerson suffered a major injury (multiple to his knees) that ended his season short. The medicals will be crucial here but if things check out, he has starter potential. Order the Ourlads' Draft Guide for the full report.

Oklahoma

Projected Round: 2/3

Ourlads' Snippet - A true general in the middle and will be a huge mental asset to any quarterback he works with at the next level. He is steps ahead of the defense at all times and will be a strong piece of glue holding his fellow linemen together. Physically he brings a big, wide body with strong hands and advanced technique.

Ohio State

Projected Round: 3/4

Ourlads' Snippet - Has a strong punch and shows the athleticism to play fast. If his hands line up well on the defender, he can ride defenders, both big and fast, out of a play. Projects as a versatile interior backup early on but certainly has the tools of a starter down the road. Order the Ourlads' Draft Guide for the full report.

Stanford

Projected Round: 4/5

Ourlads' Snippet - He is ultra-advanced when it comes to technique, smarts, and repeatability. He displays a rare level of consistent balance and body control and it is a big part of his game. Zone blocking schemes will favor him more so than the power blocking schemes, but this is a kid who can do it all and should be NFL ready week one.

Penn State

Projected Round: 6/7

Ourlads' Snippet - He is an intelligent, leader-of-the-line type who can be depended on mentally inside. Can quickly diagnose and react to the defense, directing traffic for his fellow line mates. An accomplished high school basketball player, he has athletic ability that will fit well into a scheme that has their linemen move laterally often.

Georgia

Projected Round: 7/PFA

Ourlads' Snippet - Was moved around the line early in his career before settling in at center. He has overwhelming size and power. Has plenty of tape on display showing dominant stretches of play. There is a lot to work with here, but he will need time and a lot of consistent effort to maximize his physical traits. Order the Ourlads' Draft Guide for the full report.

Florida

Projected Round: 7/PFA

Ourlads' Snippet - Has experience at both guard spots as well as center. The type of smart, scrappy, tough lineman who will be a good utility guard/center. Good size for an interior blocker. Order the Ourlads' Draft Guide for the full report.

Pittsburgh

Projected Round: 7/PFA

Ourlads' Snippet - He lacks some of the ideal professional tools, but he is a scrapper that plays the game smart. His style of play would be ideal for a zone-scheme where he can use the off-the-ball burst and comfort in space. Smart and cerebral player that can naturally and smoothly make all the calls at the line. Order the Ourlads' Draft Guide for the full report.
