Ohio State has an illustrious program, but no player in OSU history has played more games than Price, who started all 55 games over the past four seasons. But the ironman suffered a partially torn pectoral muscle while performing the bench press at the NFL Scouting Combine, requiring surgery that is expected to keep him sidelined until training camp. There is more than enough tape for scouts to understand exactly what they're getting with the experienced pivot, who split his 55 career starts between left guard, right guard and center.
Price is efficient in his snap-to-step motion, keeping his knees bent and body centered to anchor vs. power. He is technically proficient with his hands to extend into defensive linemen and dictate the point of attack. Price gets in trouble when his initial surge misses the mark and his overaggressive nature leaves him hunched at the waist. Most often, Price maintains his balance through contact, utilizing his base and body angles to stymie defenders.
Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer frequently praised Price for his mature leadership on the field and in the locker room, leading by example but also speaking up when needed. His impressive resume and position flexibility to play any interior line position will have all 32 teams interested - and with his Combine injury, he might be available at a slight discount in the draft.
