[2017-18 NFL Position Power Rankings] The Centers

Today in THE USB’S NFL STARTER POWER RANKINGS we are ranking perhaps one of the most boring positions in the NFL. That’s right, the CENTER position! Yes, no one cares about the Center, even though it’s arguably one of the most important positions on a team’s offense.

But you’re not here to hear all that nonsense, are you?

You just want to know how good your team’s Center is compared to everyone else’s. Well, this is a rather stacked group, so feel free to debate my rankings. Like you guys need to be prompted to do that anyway……

LEZ DO DIS!!!!!!
