2013 NFL Draft center rankings

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The final update to our center board.

The center position got a bit complicated after it was revealed that Barrett Jones had played through a Lisfranc injury during his senior season that would require surgery. Thought of as a first round prospect for most of the fall, Jones will now likely fall to the draft's second day.

Meanwhile, Travis Frederick has closed the ground on the Alabama snapper. He had a solid season for the Badgers and has the versatility to play either guard or center.

After Frederick and Jones, this class is tough to nail down. Brian Schwenke outplayed Khaled Holmes this season, earning the No. 3 spot, but Holmes' talent is enough to keep him in the top five.

We've ranked a total of 12 centers, some of which have the versatility to play guard at the next level.

1. Barrett Jones | 6'4, 305 pounds | Center | Alabama
2. Travis Frederick | 6'3 5/8, 312 pounds | Center | Wisconsin *
3. Brian Schwenke | 6'3, 314 pounds | Center | California
4. Khaled Holmes | 6'4, 302 pounds | Center | Southern California
5. Mario Benavides | 6'4, 280 pounds | Center | Louisville
6. Braxston Cave | 6'4, 304 pounds | Center | Notre Dame
7. Dalton Freeman | 6'5, 265 pounds | Center | Clemson
8. P.J. Lonergan | 6'3, 304 pounds | Center | LSU
9. Matt Stankiewitch | 6'3, 302 pounds | Center | Penn State
10. Stephen Warner | 6'0, 305 pounds | Center | Louisiana Tech
11. Graham Pocic | 6'7, 310 pounds | Center | Illinois
12. Joe Madsen | 6'3 1/2, 310 pounds | Center | West Virginia
