Mayock Ranks The Top Five G/C In Draft

With the NFL Scouting Combine set to get underway this week in Indianapolis, let's start to take a peek at some of the rankings of the draft prospects at each position. Today, let's check out NFL Network draft expert Mike Mayock's top five players at the guard/center positions. The notes on each player were provided by NFL.com from their Combine section.

Mayock's Top 5 Guard/Centers
Name Height Weight College
1. Mike Pouncey 6-4
313
Florida
Note: Pouncey is arguably this class' top interior offensive line prospect. He has outstanding football IQ and the ability to become a pro-bowl starter at guard or center. Has great feet needed to mirror pass rushers and pull down the line.
2. Danny Watkins 6-4
306
Baylor
Note: Watkins is new to the game of football, but has the strength and athleticism to play at the next level. He does not have the arm length and first step explosion to play left tackle, however he projects to be a quality starting guard.
3. Clint Boling 6-5
315
Georgia
Note: Boling's a prospect with a lot of starting experience at both guard and tackle spots who profiles best as an NFL guard. A savvy, maximum-effort guy who could find a home with a franchise that values technique and mobility.
4. John Moffitt 6-5
323
Wisconsin
Note: Moffitt was an integral part of a dominant offensive line for the Badgers in 2010. He looks the part of an NFL guard with a great frame and a thick lower half. He displays very good football intelligence and understands blocking schemes.
5. Rodney Hudson 6-2
282
Florida State
Note: Hudson has a well-rounded, polished skill set. Should be an immediate starter at guard or center and could make a few Pro Bowls down the line. He can handle power or speed pass rushers with his outstanding balance, flexibility and wide base.
