Washington Redskins Draft Profiles: Hroniss Grasu, C

Hogs Haven takes a look at NFL prospects heading into the 2015 draft.

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Hroniss Grasu


Height: 6'3"

Weight: 297 lbs.


Strengths: He has the body to play C in the NFL right now.  A very quick player with agility, balance, and recovery skills to spare.  Plays with incredible leverage and is almost always lower than the man he's blocking.  Plays with good strength.  Ideal for a ZBS.  Excels at blocking on the move.  A monster at the second level.

Weaknesses: Had surgery on his left leg last November.  It ended his regular season early (though he made it back for the playoffs).

Bottom Line: Great athlete at the C position with immense agility.  Lacks a little bit of a power, but mostly makes up for it with polished technique.  Started 50 straight games for the Ducks prior to the leg injury and subsequent surgery.  Still, he recovered from the surgery quick enough to play in Oregon's postseason.

Lacks a little bit of power, but has outstanding athleticism.  Very dependable player who plays with great awareness.  Could be a starter from day one in a ZBS.

Projected Round: 2

Team He Fits Best On: Jaguars, Rams, Vikings, Texans, Seahawks
