2024 NFL Draft center rankings

ACC: Matt Lee, Miami: While Matt Lee doesn’t have a draftable grade on my board, he could be a good fit in a zone-blocking scheme. This is due to his mobility which allows him to consistently reach his man when blocking his man at the second level.

Big 10: Tanor Bortolini, Wisconsin: Three positives stick out with Bortolini with the first one being his explosiveness off the ball. He does a great job of getting off the ball, and this trait helps him knock his man back when run blocking. He also is a versatile player who has started at center, guard, and even tight end during his time with the Badgers. The last trait that works in his favor is his length which allows him to keep defenders from getting into his body.

Big 12: Zach Frazier, West Virginia: A center I was high on going into the season despite being rated as the 363rd best player by Mock Draft Database is West Virginia’s Zach Frazier. The reason I was so high on him at that time and have him rated as my second-best center currently is his high football IQ and the outstanding leverage he plays with.

Pac 12: Jackson Powers-Johnson, Oregon: 2023 was a breakout season for Oregon’s Jackson Powers-Johnson, which was his first year as a full-time starter. He ended the season as Pro Football Focuses top-graded center in run blocking, pass blocking, and overall. He also won the Rimington Award which goes to the nation's top center.

SEC: Sedrick Van Pran, Georgia: One of the better-run blockers in the center class is Georiga’s Sedrick Van Pran. Van Pran shows good pop off the ball and has impressive strength overall.

Non-Power Five: Jalen Sundell, North Dakota State: There is no center out of the Power Five who earns a draftable grade but North Dakota State’s Jalen Sundell should be signed as a free agent. He has the mobility to play in a zone-blocking scheme and if he can stay healthy he has a good chance of making a team.
