1. Tyler Linderbaum, Iowa

BIG BOARD RANK: 6

The best center prospect we’ve seen in the PFF College era. He was already the highest-graded center in the country in 2020, but he has taken his game to new heights in 2021, earning a 95.3 overall grade.

2. Kenyon Green, Texas A&M

BIG BOARD RANK: 13

Green will not only be coveted for his absurd movement skills for a 325-pounder but also because he’s made starts at every single offensive line position except center this season. He can get the job done at either tackle or guard.

3. Darian Kinnard, Kentucky

BIG BOARD RANK: 51

Kinnard is one of the most accomplished run-blockers at the tackle position in college football. Even though he may end up at guard, Kinnard has earned run-blocking grades over 89.0 each of the past three seasons.

4. Zion Johnson, Boston College

BIG BOARD RANK: 58

Johnson started his career at Davidson before transferring and starting the last three at guard for Boston College. His physicality took a noticeable leap in 2021, and he allowed only six pressures all season long.

5. Dohnovan West, Arizona State

BIG BOARD RANK: 80

West has been starting ever since his freshman year in 2019. While he played guard last year, West starred at center this season and likely profiles best to there in the NFL.

6. Sean Rhyan, UCLA

BIG BOARD RANK: 81

Rhyan is a physical run-blocker who currently plays tackle for UCLA but likely profiles best to guard in the NFL. He took a massive step forward in 2021, with his overall grade going from 73.9 to 83.7.

7. John Michael Schmitz, Minnesota

BIG BOARD RANK: 98

Schmitz has been grading out well ever since he first took over as a starter in 2019. He’s got three straight seasons with an overall grade above 80.0 for the Golden Gophers.
