Weston Richburg


Center


Height: 6’3"

Weight: 300

Colorado State


Strengths: Richburg has been one of the best centers in college since he was a sophomore. He has started 49 games and has the high football IQ to serve as a pivot at the next level. A strong showing at the Senior Bowl has shown that he able to redirect bull rushers and anchor an offensive line.

Weaknesses: One of the areas Richburg needs to work on is the angles he takes when he reaches the second level. Additionally, Richburg ends up on the ground a lot, and he could improve his balance.

Bottom Line: Richburg is not an elite player but is able to make a case for being the top center in the draft. He does not seem like a plug and play prospect, but it would not surprise me if a team slides him in before his rookie season is over.

Projected Round: 2nd to 3rd

Team he fits best on: The Detroit Lions have an aging center that is a free agent. Even if the bring Dominic Raiola back, they will be looking to the future and may select a center like Richburg.
