There are only 32 starting centers in the NFL and Ricky Stromberg is trying to become one of them.
While I don’t see that happening immediately, he’s going to make some team happy with their center depth after being selected in the middle rounds on Day 3 of the 2023 NFL Draft.
Stromberg had a decorated career with the Razorbacks, being named honorable mention All-American by Pro Football Focus and a fourth-teamer by Phil Steele as well as first-team All-SEC by the coaches and media in 2022. He was one of the best centers in college football and he’s undoubtedly going to be drafted this weekend.
He finished his career at Arkansas with 44 starts and 25 straight to close out his time in Fayetteville. He’s a strong interior offensive lineman who has a great first step and plays with good leverage.
I can see him going in the fourth round to the Cardinals, Broncos, or Giants, among others.
