The 2021 NFL draft has a great group of centers that could be of value as the draft continues on.

Centers are very important for a football team as the lead and help to direct the offensive line. They’re one of the main communicators on the offense and that is very important for any team across the league. Finding a good player that is good in every facet is never easy but this class is a great one. They can block, communicate, and have the mobility to be an all-around player moving forward.

It will be interesting to see where these players go in the draft but many expect the highest rated one to go late day one or early day two. Even though the top three on this list are highly regarded, there are still good prospects available behind them. Selecting one of these three should shore up that position for years to come as they are some of the best centers to enter the league over the last couple of classes.

Number Three: Josh Myers, Ohio State

Josh Myers is one of the best centers in this class coming out of Ohio State. He saw nothing but success during his time in Columbus with that powerhouse of a program. He is a strong communicator across the offensive trenches and that is one of his best attributes. He could use work on his positioning at times because it can become sloppy and that leads to him being beat at the point of attack.

Fixing up those mistakes will make Myers an amazing center in the NFL as his experience in college will only help him going forward. Even though he is not a fully polished prospect, his ceiling is high and with proper coaching, he will get there in no time.
