Browns Eyeing a Center for College Draft

The Browns appear to be interested in University of California Center Alex Mack. Mack may be picked in the third round of this year's college Draft.

The recent release of offensive lineman Kevin Shaffer and the subsequent signings of Floyd "Pork Chop" Womack and John St. Clair have brought greater attention to our offensive line problems. Fraley is a good Center, however, he has lost a step or two. We were hammered last season up the middle and on the right side of the offensive line by opposing blitzes. After addressing our most pressing need at the linebacker position, we have no objection to the Browns looking to obtain some depth at the Center position. Fraley, after all, is 32 years old.

Mack is one of if not the best Center in college football. He is a senior who stands 6 feet 4 inches tall and weighs almost 320 pounds. In 2008, Mack won the Morris Trophy as the best offensive lineman at any position in the Pac-10; especially impressive since that award is voted on by Pac-10 defensive linemen. And Mack won that award two years in a row - just the third college player ever to accomplish that. He was a finalist for the top offensive lineman in all of college football in both 2008 and the year before. He was Cal's MVP. In 2007, Cal allowed just 11 sacks all season under the anchor of Mack - best in the Pac-10 and third best in the country. Further, in 2007, Mack was the major factor in Cal averaging more than 165 yards per game.

This young man has the potential to become one of the great Centers in the NFL. We would not complain one bit if that happened in Cleveland.

Go Browns!

  1. Good point. Hank the Tank has lost some of his edge. I just hope that a center with the 5th pick is not what happens. While that is the QB of the offensive line, I think Hank can hold it down while a third rounder learns the ropes.
