Billy Price stands out on film. How much so? He can distract analysts from trying to break down tape of opposing players.
Earlier this week, Bleacher Report’s NFL draft expert Matt Miller said that he was trying to watch film of some of Michigan’s defensive linemen, but his eyes kept focusing on the play of Price, Ohio State’s center in 2017.
“Trying to watch some Michigan DL this morning and can’t stop watching Billy Price,” Miller wrote on Twitter. “Said it over summer, Ohio State cetner will have a Rd 1 (grade) from me.”

Price moved from guard to center in his senior season at Ohio State and became the second consecutive Buckeye to win the Rimington Trophy. Pat Elflein, who was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, won the award the year before Price.
Price could also follow Elflein’s footsteps as a first-round pick. Miller had Price going 15th overall to the Arizona Cardinals in his latest mock draft.
