Stefen Wisniewski, C, Penn State

Coming from a family where his father and uncle both played in the NFL, Wisniewski is a versatile interior offensive lineman who had a very productive college career. The first true freshman Nittany Lion to start along the offensive line since 1999, Wisniewski played guard his first two seasons and has transitioned to center in his junior season. He is also known for having great grades, giving back to his community and he teaches 10th grade English. As for his skills on the field, Wisniewski is very technical and fundamentally sound. He stays low with a good center of gravity, using his feet and body lean to maintain leverage and position. However, he is not particularly strong and lacks a quick twitch for that initial burst. Though, he is a very intelligent player who understands how to hold his ground. He will need to gain upper body strength and not overextend his arms.

Wisniewski is a hard-worker who understands the commitment necessary to be a professional football player. Obvious strong pedigree with close family being NFL players, but must bulk up to play guard in the NFL. Likely a good fit in a zone blocking scheme, which utilizes his talents and doesn't rely on athleticism.

His tenacity will give him a real shot at seeing playing time early at the next level. With improved footwork, he should have a very long career.

Wisniewski projects as an late-second to third round selection in the 2011 NFL Draft.

Prediction: 2nd Round

Wisniewski will go in the second round range- May Minnesota who needs a solid interior OL to play guard or center.
