10. Washington IOL Nick Harris
Let me preface this by saying that as a Florida Gators fan, it pains me to write the suggestion that Jon Halapio be replaced as the center of the New York Giants. However, if the NY Giants are truly interested in protecting Daniel Jones and giving Saquon Barkley the rushing lanes, it’s time.
Nick Harris is the top center at the Senior Bowl and with Oklahoma’s Creed Humphrey returning to school for his senior season, Harris might be the top center in the class. Humphrey going back to school also makes Harris’ stock rise to the point where he can challenge Kenny Willekes for the top draft spot on this list.
While Harris has been on the rise as of late, I would not be doing my job properly if I left here without telling you what you could expect from Nick Harris. First off, expect him to cost the Giants their second-round pick if they decide to draft him. Second, know that Harris is an intelligent center capable of making protection calls and holding his own, but he lacks top strength to be dominant on a consistent basis.
For a talent reference, I have a second-round grade on Nick Harris but the lack of top talent and depth along the interior offensive line in this year’s draft class, along with a huge need for offensive linemen across the NFL means that he very well could hear his name called before the first night of the draft is over.
