4. (C) Garrett Bradbury, N.C. State 6-3, 300 (2)
Why Garrett Bradbury Is Here On The List: He’s not massive, and he might be purely a center at the next level, but he’s a technician who did a great job of keeping QB Ryan Finley upright and healthy. The Rimington Award winner as the nation’s best center, and in the right offensive system, he could be a star.
More athletic than most for the position, he’ll make up for his lack of blasting ability with his quickness and experience. He can handle the bulky Coke machines just fine, but he’ll be at his best on the move.
What The NFL Types Want To See: Just how quick is he? Like all offensive linemen at the Combine, the bench will matter – especially to make up for his lack of pure bulk – but if his feet are great and he’s more agile than the rest for the position, he’ll be a top 50 pick.
Bottom Line: He might not be for everyone because he’s not 320 for the interior, but he’s as sound as they come. He’s strong enough to get by, and all the other intangibles are enough to make him a safe value get in the mid-to-late second round.
