Wisconsin_logo.gif Peter Konz*, C, Wisconsin

Height: 6-5. Weight: 315.

Projected 40 Time: 5.58.

Projected Round (2012): 1.

1/9/12: The junior Konz has collected a stack of dominant tapes for NFL evaluators this season. He has played elite players like Jerel Worthy and Jared Crick very well. The Badgers have had a fabulous running offense, and Konz is an excellent run blocker. He seals holes well, gets to the second level, and puts defenders on the ground regularly. Konz has done a fabulous job in pass protection for quarterback Russell Wilson. Not many centers enter the draft early. That goes for Wisconsin offensive linemen as well, so it would be somewhat surprising if he enters the 2012 draft. Late in the season, Konz dislocated his ankle and that caused him to sit out some games. He returned and played very well in the Rose Bowl against Oregon.



Georgia_logo.gif Ben Jones, C, Georgia

Height: 6-3. Weight: 304.

Projected 40 Time: 5.17.

Arm: 32 1/4. Hand: 9 5/8.

Projected Round (2012): 2-3.

1/9/12: To start the season, Jones had a rough performance against Boise State and really struggled with defensive tackle Billy Winn. Jones (6-3, 316) allowed a sack and way too much pressure up the middle of the defense. After that game, he played really well for most of the year. Jones was a solid run blocker and improved his pass protection. He did not play well against LSU and Michigan State. Jones is a bigger center who would be a fit in a power run scheme, and he will need to get better as a pass rusher.


OhioState_logo.gif Michael Brewster, C, Ohio State

Height: 6-4. Weight: 310.

Projected 40 Time: 5.08.

Arm: 31. Hand: 9 5/8.

Projected Round (2012): 2-3.

1/9/12: Brewster had some late season struggles which have sent his stock down. He played poorly against Penn State and had problems snapping the ball due to being so preoccupied with blocking Devon Still. For some strange reason, his snaps trailed off as the season went on. In his bowl game versus Florida, Brewster did not play all that well.


Still, the senior is an intelligent technician who typically wins his block. He is well-rounded as a run blocker and pass blocker. Early in the season, Brewster had excellent games against Miami defensive tackle Marcus Forston, and Nebraska defensive tackles Jared Crick and Baker Steinkuhler. Brewster is athletic and mobile. The knock on him is his smaller size and lack of power as a run blocker. In the NFL, Brewster would excel in a passing-led offense or a zone-blocking run scheme.



Baylor_logo.gif Philip Blake, C, Baylor

Height: 6-2. Weight: 312.

Projected 40 Time: 5.58.

Arm: 31 7/8. Hand: 9 3/4.

Projected Round (2012): 2-3.

1/9/12: Throughout 2011, Blake was an excellent pass protector for Robert Griffin III, and opened up holes in the ground game for running back Terrance Ganaway. Blake is a good athlete for his size. He has the strength to push tackles aside and surprising quickness to hit blocks on linebackers. For the past two years, Blake has been the starter at center, having begun his collegiate career at tackle. To close out 2011, he had a lot of success going against Washington Huskies defensive tackle Alameda Ta'amu in the Alamo Bowl. The Baylor Bears were able to have a massive game on the ground to the tune of 482 yards. In the NFL, Blake would probably fit best in a power man blocking scheme.


Alabama_logo.gif William Vlachos, C, Alabama

Height: 6-0. Weight: 306.

Projected 40 Time: 5.13.

Arm: 30. Hand: 9 1/8.

Projected Round (2012): 2-3.

12/5/11: Vlachos has had an overall strong season. The senior has led a powerful interior running game for Alabama, but he struggled against LSU and its speedy interior linemen. However, Vlachos looks like a solid pick who will be able to play quickly in the NFL.


Michigan_logo.gif David Molk, C, Michigan

Height: 6-2. Weight: 286.

Projected 40 Time: 4.99.

Projected Round (2012): 3-4.

1/9/12: Molk was an excellent college player, and he was the 2011 Remington Trophy recipient. Molk is a fast and mobile blocker who did a good job of opening up holes and protecting quarterback Denard Robinson. Molk is very undersized, and he could be lighter than his listed measurements. At the next level, Molk will have to be in a zone-blocking scheme to survive. He doesn't have size to fit in a power man blocking scheme, so that limits him to teams that are zone based, and not all of them need a center. If Molk was bigger and stronger to be an option for other schemes, he would be a definite second-day pick.



MississippiState_logo.gif Quentin Saulsberry, C, Mississippi State

Height: 6-2. Weight: 300.

Projected 40 Time: 5.10.

Projected Round (2012): 3-4.

1/9/12: Saulsberry was an honorable All-SEC mention for his 2011 season at center. He did a good job of blocking for running back Vick Ballard. Saulsberry is a versatile player who has logged time at four of the five offensive line positions. He was the starter at right guard in 2010 and left guard in 2009. As a freshman, he was the starter at right tackle. In the NFL, Saulsberry could stay at center at his current weight. If the senior moves to guard, he will need to add some more bulk and power to his game. At the very least, Saulsberry should be a versatile backup for game days.


Oklahoma_logo.gif Ben Habern, C, Oklahoma

Height: 6-2. Weight: 291.

Projected 40 Time: 5.28.

Projected Round (2012): 3-4.

1/9/12: Habern started the season strong with three good games for the Sooners. He broke his arm against Missouri and missed the next four games. Habern had some inconsistencies later and that hurt his stock some this year. Habern looks like a better pass protector than run blocker.



ArizonaState_logo.gif Garth Gerhart, C/G, Arizona State

Height: 6-1. Weight: 301.

Projected 40 Time: 5.25.

Arm: 32 7/8. Hand: 9 5/8.

Projected Round (2012): 3-4.

1/9/12: Gerhart played well for Arizona State this season and improved his stock significantly. He is quick and athletic. That allows him to be effective when pulling. Gerhart also isn't afraid to get physical and fights through the whistle. He is a better run blocker than pass blocker. Gerhart needs to improve his awareness and get his head on swivel in pass protection. He struggled against Boise State and defensive tackle Billy Winn.


OklahomaState_logo.gif Grant Garner, C, Oklahoma State

Height: 6-3. Weight: 292.

Projected 40 Time: 5.19.

Projected Round (2012): 4-5.

1/9/12: Garner played well this season. He did well in run blocking, but was simply superb at keeping the pocket clean for quarterback Brandon Weeden. Garner played well against Stanford to conclude his career.

Jaymes Brooks, G-OC, Virginia Tech

Height: 6-2. Weight: 307


The kid has played some center too.





Scott Wedige, C, Northern Illinois

Height: 6-4. Weight: 314


/6/12: Wedige did a good job of blocking for Chandler Harnish in 2011 and has improved his draft stock. He was not at the Scouting Combine.


8/20/11: Scott Wedige had an excellent debut as the starting center last season. He was an All-MAC first-teamer in 2010. Wedige was a very good pass blocker last season and Northern Illinois allowed less than a sack per game.


Walters 5-6

draft scout 7th-udfa
