4. C Billy Price, Ohio State
6-4, 312: Pectoral muscles heal, but the injury suffered at the Combine is a problem.
The best center in the draft suffered a torn pec on the bench in Indy, but does that hurt is stock? Nah, no one seems to be all that concerned.
Able to play center or guard, he’s a brutish blocker at both spots and turned into one of the team’s most consistent and durable players – and then he suffered the fluke injury.
Devastating with a killer football attitude, he destroyed defenders off the ball as one of the stronger players coming out with both his upper and lower body. He knows how to get leverage, he’s able to wall off his man with ease, and he’s able to bury guys when he gets the chance.
Will he rub people the wrong way? He’s way, way intense, and it doesn’t shut off. At least on the field …
Whatever line he anchors for the next ten years will take on a nasty identity.
Projected Round: Second
Real Value: Top 50
