Bottom Line on Stefen Wisniewski:

Stefen Wisniewski has been starting for Penn State since his freshman year, so he has a ton of experience. He's effective as both a run blocker and pass protector. He isn't tremendously athletic, but he has enough agility and quickness to play any of the interior line positions. He is probably best fit for the center position, but could be a solid starting guard if he adds a little overall strength.

Projection: Wisniewski is considered one of the top interior linemen in the 2011 NFL Draft, which means he could be selected anywhere from the middle of the first round to the end of the second.
