It's always a good draft for centers when one is drafted in the first round. That was the case last April when the Dallas Cowboys plucked Wisconsin's Travis Frederick off the board late in the first round.
What Frederick had going for him was his versatility. He has the ability to play all along the interior of the offensive line, which is a huge boost to his NFL value.
Whether or not this center class shows that same versatility remains to be scene. The top three centers in the class, Bryan Stork, Gabe Ikard and Travis Swanson all have the ability to play in zone-blocking scheme due to intelligence and athleticism.
The sleeper center to watch at this point in the season is James Stone at Tennessee.
Here's our full list. Let us know who we missed.
