2009 NFL Draft Prospects: <br> Max Unger Profile

Strengths: Arms are as long as vines, with a strong frame and good bulk ... Athletic lineman ... Does a great job of finishing blocks ... Nasty attitude ... Smart and a great leader for Oregon ... Displays sound footwork ... Mobile and gets to the second level ... Can fit the zone-blocking scheme like a glove ... Versatile enough to play every position on the offensive line ... Maintains a sound base in pass protection ... Experience at multiple positions.

Weaknesses: Too tall to play center? ... Occasionally gets too high out of his stance, and that is when he gets beat ... Hand placement could be improved ... Allows defensive tackles to get inside of him occasionally ... Does he have a true position on the line?

Summary: Unger is a very solid prospect that will give Alex Mack a run for his money to be the first center taken ... Could be a combine warrior ... Supreme versatility is his trademark, but first-round picks generally aren't draft for versatility ... Best fit is in the zone-blocking scheme, but really can start in a power running game.

Player Comparison: Logan Mankins. Mankins was viewed as an athletic, nasty lineman out of Fresno State, and while he has settled in at left guard with the Patriots, he can really play four positions on the line.
