Jonathan Luigs
6-4/300 Arkansas
5.14 Senior

Pros: Has good size and shows potential as a run blocker. Works well in space and does a good job getting out to second level and taking out linebackers. Locks on and finishes his blocks.

Cons: Has decent footwork but will struggle against quality defensive tackles. Needs work in the shotgun with low snaps.

Overview: Luigs is a solid center prospect that does his best on the second level. But has the strength and potential as an inline run blocker. He started out at right guard before making the move to center late as a freshman and holding it since. He was a top prospect going into the season, but with change in offense brought on Petrino, his stock slipped this past year as the Razorbacks were not as effective on offense.

NFL Forecast: Luigs should be a solid starting center, and has the size and potential to also be able to play some guard. Although he would not be that great there. But he offers versatility to play both positions. May not be a great center, but should be an effective starter. He is a run blocker though and if he can play in a scheme that takes advantage of that he should be a solid player.

ATL Forecast: Luigs gives the Falcons greater potential as a run blocker at the pivot position than McClure. He'll need to bounce back after a disappointing senior year, but he would fit nicely in Atlanta because he too was burned by Bobby Petrino. He has greater upside and can add size and ability to push the pile as a center. The key will be for him showing similar ability as McClure in terms of awareness and ability to make line calls. Luigs could potentially replace McClure after a year on the bench.

Value: Luigs offers upside as center and is a solid middle round pick that I would target in the fourth or fifth round.
