Top 10 Centers in NFL 2021 Rankings
Ranking the best Offensive Lineman at the Center position as Corey Linsley leads the way going into the 2021-2022 NFL Season
By brandon walker | December 6, 2021
Centers are important in that they are the only person besides the quarterback to touch the ball on every play. Furthermore, they set up pass protections, and are asked to block everybody from linebackers to 340 nose tackles. I think there are a lot of great centers in the league, but number one for me is Corey Linsley of the Los Angeles Chargers.
Top 10 Centers
Team: Washington Football Team
There have been many changes that have gone along with Washington’s line over the years but the main stalwart is the man in the middle of their line. He is an upper echelon pass blocker, as he graded out at a 76.4 in true pass-blocking sets, which is third among his position.
Team: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Jenson has the task of being responsible for making sure Tom Brady remains upright as Tampa hopes to repeat. While his pass blocking may leave a little to be desired, he is a mauler in the run game.
Team: Indianapolis Colts
Kelly earned a record-setting contract for a center before the 2021 season. The reason: only allowing four sacks in his first five seasons.
Team: Jacksonville Jaguars
Linder has allowed only one sack in 3,500 plus snaps in pass protection snaps in his career. If the Jaguars hope to develop Trevor Lawrence then Linsley will be a reason why.

Team: Tennessee Titans
The Titans have had injuries along the line, and at the skill position players all season long, but the Titans still are winning games because of Jones holding down the fort in the middle of the line. His leadership along with his play has helped the Titans hold their heads above water.
Team: Philadelphia Eagles
Kelce is still a superb run-blocking center who is one of the best at his position over the past ten years. He has built a Hall of Fame resume and he has earned it.
Team: Detroit Lions
There has been one beacon of light in 2021 in Detroit and that is Ragnow. If Detroit is going to turn this around then Ragnow will lead the charge with young tackles and a future franchise Quarterback.
Team: Cleveland Browns
Tretter has graded out at over an 80 according to Pro Football Focus in pass blocking for the past six seasons, and had his best year run blocking in 2020.
Team: Arizona Cardinals
The former Raider came to Arizona and he helped Kyler Murray become an MVP candidate and is turning James Conner into an All-Pro Back. There are no coincidences why Arizona is in first place in the NFC West and it is due to Husdon’s play along the offensive line.
Team: Los Angeles Chargers
Linsley got paid to protect Aaron Rodgers and now he is protecting Justin Herbert. He has graded out in the 80T percent isle in each season since 2014 when he came into the league.
