Creed Humphrey became a starter as a redshirt freshman at Oklahoma in 2018 and had an impressive debut. He anchored the middle of the Sooners' line and was a steady producer at the point of attack.
Humphrey is rock solid at the Center position, and would upgrade any team's Offensive Line. He's had 36 straight starts since 2018, and has not allowed a sack in 1,600 snaps. There are some concerns with his body type physically, but he does have a wrestling background from high school, which has certainly helped mask his physical limitations and helped him hold his ground in blocking.
He's a leader among men who routinely figures out what defenses are doing on the line, as well as pointing out the MIKE linebacker. Being a Center, his communication skills are already a plus. He anchors his lower body very well, and does not let interior defensive lineman get around him.
The Sooner Prodigy is a left-handed Center, which is very rare as most Centers and QB's are right-handed. Having a left-handed Center and right-handed QB can certainly affect the snap of the football a little, although did not show up much at Oklahoma. Remember, Tua is left-handed as well.
His arms and length are a concern, as defenders will try to swipe his arms and swim past him in the NFL, and his ability to reach the second level with proper technique needs to be taught. He's a need for Miami and a mid-level 1st rounder.
