Hroniss Grasu – 6’3 – 294lbs – Oregon
Grasu shouldn’t necessarily be considered a “sleeper” per say, but he’s my favorite center to come out in this draft. With the tempo of the games and in the practices in Oregon during the Chip Kelly era, any player he deems fit enough to play such an essential role has my vote of confidence. Could you imagine the endurance and motor it must take for a man that size to play on Oregon’s offensive line? With the type of player that Kyle Long, the Chicago Bears first-round pick, is shaping up to be, it may surprise you to know that Grasu, not Long, was named Oregon’s Offensive Lineman of the Year in 2012. Grasu is projected to run under a 4.9 40 and be drafted early in the 2nd round.
