Here are the five rookie centers who seemed to be at the top of most of the pre-draft boards. (Some lists also had Zeitler at center as well as guard.) I think the old guy you're referring to is Blake. He's about to turn 27 later this month.
– (Atlanta, 2nd round) Currently starting at guard. Their center, Todd McClure, is 35 years old and the speculation is that Konz will slide over to center eventually when McClure retires or slows down.
(Denver, 4th round) – suffered a thumb injury and was placed on IR before week 3, out for the season. Different sites had him listed as either a backup center or backup guard before the injury.
- (Houston, 4th round) Lots of playing time at right guard so far, has been rotating throughout the season with a veteran . Started the season very strongly and lately has hit the rookie wall. Good in pass protection, has struggled against the run.
(Jaguars, UDFA) - Started a couple of games at left guard early in the season, wowed no one, now listed as their backup center.
(Chargers, 7th round) - Listed as backup at center. I couldn’t find a dang thing about him, looks like he hasn't made an impact or challenged for a starting spot.
