John Garrison

OC | (6-4, 288, 5.22) | Nebraska
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Came to Nebraska as a defensive end in 1999 but was team's long-snapper in every game. Was a backup center, guard and long-snapper in 2000. Started 13 games at center and handled the snapping responsibilities in '01. Played in every game since coming to Nebraska, including the last season at center and long-snapper.

Positives: Sturdy and mobile center who is very quick as a long-snapper and can do everything in one motion. Is intense, makes all of the line calls and has top football intelligence. Moves his feet and gets in front of blockers to win battles he shouldn't by using good leverage.

Negatives: Lacks strength and lower-body strength. Lacks explosion and gets too aggressive, causing him to overextend. Will struggle to get much movement against size and is on the ground too much. Tends to get his weight forward. Needs to improve playing strength and pass-blocking technique.

Summary: Could be taken late because of his long-snapping ability, but he leaves a lot to be desired as a center.
