1. Travis Frederick - the most consistent Center in the league who dominates the position. Unbelievably strong, with lightness of foot, its equally hard to go through or around him

2.Alex Mack - One of the few bright spots on a Cleveland roster has transferred his level of play to Atlanta

3. Jason Kelce - A leader on the line and the whole team who has corrected technical issues according to analysts. Integral part of a SB winning franchise

4. Rodney Hudson - One of the best pass protecting Centers in the NFL who combines power with total effort. If theRaiders get back on track, Hudson stock will rise still further

5. Brian Jensen - Baltimore heavily rely on the run and Jensen is one of the reasons they are able to do it, despite the lack of star names at the position

1. Travis Frederick (Cowboys) - Does everything well. He isn't perfect but as has been pointed out he's so consistent.

2. Alex Mack (Falcons)
- Hard to split Frederick and Mack really, it basically boils down to me not wanting to be over critical of TF just because I watch him 16+ times a year.

3. Jason Kelce (Eagles) - I like the idea of agile 'undersized' Centers, if you can call 295lbs undersized. He has the athleticism to reach the 2nd level in the run game and be very effective.

4. Rodney Hudson (Raiders) - He's had his share of praise in recent years. It's hard to split the group that follows the top 3 imo.

5. Weston Richburg (49ers) - Another 'undersized' Center. Had his injury issues but he could be in for a good year with the resurgent 9ers.

Hudson, Mack, Frederick, Mack, Frederick, Hudson, Frederick, Mack, Hudson?

1. Mack - what he does at the 2nd level just edges it for me.

2. Hudson - just great in PP

3. Frederick - relegated to 3rd because of the beard.

4. Kelce - if this was based on speeches the guy would win hands down. Should have been Superbowl MVP.

5. Linder - Jags players don't get the credit they should.

1. Travis Frederick - Best pass protector of the bunch and that elevates him above the rest for me.

2. Alex Mack - Offers very similar skills to the next one on the list but has been doing it more consistently for longer, a real leader on his team as well.

3. Jason Kelce - Best run blocker at the position, so fast out to the second level and dynamic enough to make more than one block there if necessary.

4. Rodney Hudson - Another excellent pass protector but doesn't quite influence the game as much as the two above.

5. Brian Jensen - Very strong in both pass and run protection, expect to see the Bucs line improve with him at the pivot.
