Washington Redskins Draft Profile: Russell Bodine, C

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Hogs Haven takes a look at the upcoming prospects in the 2014 NFL Draft

Russell Bodine


Center/Offensive Guard


Height: 6’3"

Weight: 310

40 Yard Dash: 5.18 seconds

Bench Press Reps: 42 reps

University of North Carolina


Strengths: Russell Bodine lead offensive linemen in bench press by a wide margin. Bodine has enormous upper body strength and can seal off defenders to make creases. Bodine is a decent anchor in pass protection and handled blitzes fairly well.

Weaknesses: Bodine relies on his upper body strength far too much. He is stiff and does not move well in space. He has short arms for the position, can lean on defenders rather than engaging them.

Bottom Line: Bodine would have benefited greatly from staying another year. His mechanics need work, but his strength and ability to play multiple positions mean he will be on a roster opening day.

Projected Round: 5th to 6th

Team he fits best on: Miami Dolphins, New York Jets, Cleveland Browns
