Nick Mangold

By

Position: Center

School: Ohio State

Status: Senior

Height: 6-4

Weight: 290

40-Yard Dash: 4.95 (EST)

Positives:


He can make all the blocks! A devastating run blocker that blows defenders backwards. Has been a star on the offensive line the past three years, making 21 straight starts. This center will make all the calls before the snap and allow the line to play as a cohesive unit. He has the desired size you look for in a lineman, and even better, he has that nasty streak you look for.

Negatives:


Pass blocking is not where Nick excels, but he does an adequate job of it. He tends not to play to his potential at times, but when he plays full throttle, watch out. His size is good but tends to get out of his stance too slow, which will give him trouble with quick defensive tackles.

Overview:


A middle round pick that has great potential. He will not start right away but if he could learn behind a great mentor, then the sky is the limit. His offensive line coach praises him and the Buckeyes have had a great tradition of offensive lineman.
