2018 NFL Draft: Updated top 25 targets for New York Giants
By Henry Buggy
#22 – Ohio State C Billy Price
Offensive tackle and a future franchise quarterback remain New York’s top priorities this offseason, but the G-Men may need to find a permanent replacement for center Weston Richburg should he leave in free agency.
Giants backup center Brett Jones is a restricted free agent this offseason, but he is not a long-term solution for Big Blue’s center position.
Both Kiper and Miller have Ohio State’s 6-foot-4, 312-pound center listed as the best prospect at his position, and NFL Network draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah wrote that Price is “one of the best center prospects I’ve seen in the past decade.”
Vikings third-round pick Pat Elflein was instrumental in the turnaround of Minnesota’s offensive line in 2017, and Price is expected to be the next Buckeye offensive lineman to thrive at the next level. It’s unknown if he will fall out of the first-round, but the Ohio State center would be a second-round steal if New York moves on from Richburg.
