Josh Myers 2021 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Name: Josh Myers
College: Ohio State
Weight: 310 lbs
Arm Length: 32”
Overall Rank: No. 75 overall
Position Rank: IOL6
Strengths: A two-year starter at center with experience at guard from his high school days, Myers is a fantastic run blocker with the agility and strength needed to be a good starter in the NFL. He has a big frame with room to add mass if needed. Myers is a smart player who has been asked to make line calls at Ohio State and done so with a high-level of success. He moves well to the second level and can execute reach blocks. While a little taller than you might peg for a zone blocking center, Myers’ experience at Ohio State makes him a perfect fit for inside zone teams.
Weaknesses: A tall center with short arms, Myers has to watch his pad height in pass pro and on the move in the run game. A bit of a waist-bender in space, Myers could use work on his posture in pass sets. At times he was a late recovery artist and needs to speed up his process.
What I Love: Myers is NFL ready in the run game and has the power to be impactful there. That’s becoming a lost art in the college game too often but he’s a Day 1 starter. Myers is functionally athletic but doesn’t jump off the screen as a top-tier mover.
