    B/R NFL 1,000: Top 32 Centers | Bleacher Report

    Sure have seen alot of good stuff about Sully of late (and not all in Caine's beloved Bleacher Report).
    this is the same website that rated Jason Peters the top left tackle and Ryan clady #27 behind 3 rookies, one who got hurt in Russel Okung, trent richardson (#11) and Roger Saffold, who was on arguably the worst line in the league... and Jared Gaither at a whopping #8. May I remind you this guy got cut, by KC, minnesota had a chance to get him off waivers and didn't....

    About the only thing they got right was Charlie Johnson at #32.... bogus report... sorry!

    Shocking... look who #10 is on the Center list...

    10. Matt Birk, Baltimore Ravens


    Agility4.5
    Birk possesses average to good agility. As he ages, his lack of agility becomes more of an issue.

    Awareness8.5
    An incredibly smart center who combines a great football IQ with a decade of experience. Birk is rarely out of position and rarely makes the wrong call.

    Pass Block, Speed8.5
    Has the ability and quickness to snap and then raise up to stop a nose tackle, or to help with a 3-tech. Quick off the ball. Very consistent hand placement.

    Pass Block, Power8
    Big, strong hands that produce a quick, efficient punch. Has a good anchor and can handle a nose tackle on his own. Great awareness.

    Run Block6.5
    Is quick off the snap and gets a hold of the defender quickly. Has the strength to turn the defender and then drive him away from the ball. Average lateral agility.

    Move in Space5

    Limited in space due to age and stiffness. Isn't asked to get out on screens or lead-block often.

    Strength7
    Can deliver a big-time pop when his technique and balance are on point. Can send a linebacker airborne when picking up a blitz. Strong player up top with good drive power from his base.

    Technique7
    Picked up four penalties, which is about average. Is a near-flawless blocker. Might try to pancake too often and can reach when beat on the outside.

    Size10
    Ideal size at 6'5" and 308 lbs.

    Health10
    Started every game in 2011.

    Overall75
    One of the best against the pass, his lack of agility and mobility hurts in the run game. The Ravens can hide him though, with two Pro Bowl-caliber guards.

    Who cares what some no-name writer from Bleacher Report says? Jon Sullivan is awful. If you disagree, go back to watching Spongebob.

    Out of all the posts on here, you pick that one to reply to? What about Matt Birk being at 10? What about comments on the rest of the article and rankings? You can't just bring one bogus report saying Sullivan is a top 5 center and leave. These rankings are garbage.

    I only know of 3 places where Sullivan is considered a top 5 center.

    1. Bleacher Report

    2. Marrdro's mind

    3. The NFC Central division
