2014 NFL Draft center rankings

Troy Babbitt-USA TODAY Sports

Is there a center good enough to come off the board in first round of the 2014 NFL Draft?

Center is often an overlooked position in the NFL Draft. It's rare to see more than one center come off the board before the second day of the draft. Last year, Travis Frederick snuck into round one, but it's a somewhat uncommon occurrence for a center these days.

The 2014 NFL Draft isn't likely to have any centers drafted in the first round, but there are a few players who could come off the board early in day two. Oklahoma's Gabe Ikard has been our top center all along, but both Travis Swanson and Weston Richburg aren't too far behind. Richburg was excellent as a senior at Colorado State and would fit nicely into a zone blocking scheme.

USC's Marcus Martin is worth keeping an eye on as well. He entered his name into the draft a year early after getting injured in his final collegiate game. Here's the full list of 11 centers we have ranked.

1. Gabe Ikard | 6'3, 298 pounds | Center | Oklahoma
2. Travis Swanson | 6'4, 314 pounds | Center | Arkansas
3. Weston Richburg | 6'4, 300 pounds | Center | Colorado State
4. Marcus Martin | 6'3, 310 pounds | Center | Southern California *
5. Tyler Larsen | 6'3, 310 pounds | Center | Utah State
6. Russell Bodine | 6'4, 310 pounds | Center | North Carolina *
7. Bryan Stork | 6'3, 312 pounds | Center | Florida State
8. Khalil Wilkes | 6'3, 286 pounds | Center | Stanford
9. Zac Kerin | 6'5, 300 pounds | Center | Toledo
10. James Stone | 6'3, 291 pounds | Center | Tennessee
11. Corey Linsley | 6'3, 297 pounds | Center | Ohio State
