Coming from a line of rich athletic blood, Stefen Wisniewski put together a solid collegiate campaign for Penn State University. He started 12 games his sophomore season at guard before being moved to center. He earned all conference honors at both positions which makes him a great draft prospect in the sense that he is able to sufficiently produce at all 3 interior line positions. He has strong lateral movement ability and posted a fairly good 40 yard dash time in comparison to other Centers in the combine. He put up 30 reps on bench, near the top for the position as well. When being evaluated, scouts main concern is that he would need to gain in lower body power and strength. The bright side of this kid is that he comes from a great family bloodline, put up a great college campaign, and that he is highly regarded for his field knowledge and ability to read defenses and notice blitz packages.
Although I do wish that we would address a defensive pass rush first and wide receiver 2nd, I would love to see the Chargers take a look at him in the middle rounds. He has great potential and does not appear to have any durability or character issues. Especially with the versatility, I feel that he could make a great addition the wall being built in front of Philip the great! Not only will a stronger O-line help us out in being able to air out the ball, but it will be a great opportunity to really show off the amazing talent we have in the running game and put the Chargers back into the playoffs once again!
