Interior Offensive Line: Anywhere

When looking for a center to bring that offensive line together, the best place to look is in the Pac-12. There aren’t enough centers in the Hall of Fame to judge from a historical point of view. But in today’s game, Ryan Kalil from USC and Alex Mack from Cal are among the best centers in the game and Max Tuerk is the No. 1 center prospect at USC.

Also going by today’s game it’s easy to see that your huge guards can come from the from anywhere. Now a days, a lot of guards in the NFL were left tackles in college but switched after it didn’t work out at tackle. That’s why looking into history and current times, it looks like great guards come from anywhere.

But left tackles from the SEC and Big-10 often make really good candidates to move to guard. It’s too bad that many of them have to go bust at left tackle to make the move. Iowa’s Robert Gallery and Michigan State’s Tony Mandarich were decent after they moved to guard while Ole Miss’s Michael Oher is fighting it with the Carolina Panthers.
