Top 10 Centers/Guards in the 2015 NFL Draft
By Matt Horkman

Cam Erving

1. Cam Erving, Florida State
Erving’s performance in the ACC Championship against Georgia Tech was a thing of beauty. He established himself as an elite run blocker that night, knocking defenders off the ball and paving the way for Florida State’s ground game. His movement skills are very good, as he has no problem getting to the second level. Versatility is strength, as he can play every position along the offensive line, though center is his best position. In a draft rich with offensive line talent, Erving is near the top. Using a first-round pick on him wouldn’t be a bad investment.

2. Laken Tomlinson, Duke
Locked in as a second round pick, Tomlinson is a great run blocker. He paves the way in the running game, driving defenders out of the gap. In addition, he has the movement skills to get to the second level. He does a good job of keeping his hands inside, and is strong enough to anchor against almost anyone.

3. Cedric Ogbuehi, Texas A&M
A right tackle or guard at the next level, Ogbuehi brings good size and footwork to the table. He has long arms (over 35 inches) and experience playing in a fast-paced offense. His power is a little underwhelming, but he’s a good enough athlete to get to the second level. A zone-blocking scheme, such as Denver, would be an ideal fit. He tore his ACL against West Virginia in last year‘s Liberty Bowl. Teams will need their doctors to give him thumbs up before investing a high draft pick in him.

4. Jarvis Harrison, Texas A&M
Harrison is versatile. The Aggies played him at several positions, though he projects better inside at the next level. He has good size, power, and anchors well. He needs to show more bend in his hips, though he’s a good pass protector.

5. A.J. Cann, South Carolina
Cann is explosive out of his stance. He’s a good pass protector; he’ll do his job and give his quarterback a clean pocket. His run blocking is also steady. Overall, Cann lacks the measurables of an elite interior offensive lineman, but his grit and consistency makes him a potential starter. 

6. Tre Jackson, Florida State
Big and physical, Jackson is a future starter at the next level. He’s a good pass protector, and shows the ability to get to the second level in the run game. His experience is also a plus. He was a three-year starter for Florida State, playing in some of the biggest settings in college football.

7. Hroniss Grasu, Oregon
Undersized but gritty, Grasu is among the most athletic interior offensive lineman of this year’s class. However, he possesses below average power. Still, with elite movement skills, Grasu has the ability to starter under the right circumstances.

8. Arie Kouandjio, Alabama
Kouandjio needs to clean up his technique. He has poor footwork and his hand placement. He’s a powerful player, though. He‘ll have his share of pancake blocks. He also has long arms. His brother (Cyrus) was a second pick by the Buffalo Bills in last year‘s draft. While it wouldn’t be shocking to see him go in round two, he’s more likely to hear his name called in round three or four.

9. John Miller, Louisville
An experience guard prospect, Miller made 47 starts in his college career. He’s a good run blocker, using his size to enforce his power on defenders.

10. Reese Dismukes, Auburn
The Remington Award winner, Dismukes is a good run blocker that gets to the second level. He has good technique, doing a nice job of keeping his hands inside. He’ll need to overcome his short arms. His tape against Alabama, a team with a lot of NFL talent, is really disappointing.

Honorable Mentions
Jamon Brown, Louisville
Jamil Douglas, Arizona State
B.J. Finney, Kansas State
Max Garcia, Florida
Ali Marpet, Hobart
