NFL draft evaluation season is about to ramp up, but Ohio State center Billy Price already has done a lot to impress analysts and scouts.
Price could be the top center selected in the 2018 NFL Draft, and he is among the best players at the position in 10 years, according to one analyst. NFL.com’s Daniel Jeremiah called Price “one of the best center prospects” he has seen in the last decade.
Here is his full analysis of the Buckeyes captain:
“I recently studied Buckeyes senior Billy Price and he’s one of the best center prospects I’ve seen in the past decade. He has tremendous upper body torque, quick feet and outstanding awareness. (Pat) Elflein has enjoyed an outstanding rookie campaign with the Vikings, and I think Price is a superior player on college tape. I gave Price the same grade I gave (Nick) Mangold when he entered the league, and Mangold ended up being a first-round selection.”
