Billy Price, Ohio State/C-G
High School: Fitch
Price went from the AP Co-Defensive Player of the Year in high school to winning the Rimington Trophy (best college center) at Ohio State as a senior. The four-year standout along the offensive line actually converted to center after Pat Elflein left for Minnesota this past off-season. Price tops all Buckeyes in school history for most consecutive starts (55). Billy was also a unanimous first-team All-American this past season. In early-March, he underwent surgery for a pectoral injury which happened at the Combine.
Scouts still view Price as a solid starter early on.
