NFL Draft 2022: 10 players New York Giants could target if they trade back
By Reese Nasser
Iowa center Tyler Linderbaum is a near-perfect prospect.
Linderbaum has shown elite skills in both pass and run blocking. He was also rarely beat, regardless of who was lined up against him. He finished the past season with a PFF grade of 95.4, the highest of any player in division 1.
In the three seasons that he spent at center, Linderbaum logged 2,317 snaps. In that time, he allowed just two sacks and 19 total pressures.
At 6-2 and 296 pounds, Linderbaum is seen as somewhat undersized for the center position, but this hasn’t impacted him yet. He has been dominant and typically won due to his athleticism.
Linderbaum will immediately come into the league and produce at the center position. He will heavily influence the run game and will play a large role in the success of the passing game.
