Very Few.

Grassu has been on 6 teams in 5 seasons
Elflein is on his second team in 3 seasons
Cushenberry was just plain bad.

Kelly, Price and Bradbury were all first round picks, which, since we lack a #1 pick, makes them hard to apply to this discussion. Bradbury was drafted to replace Elflein.
Cole and McCoy were hits in the second and 3rd round.

Not saying it's impossible, but the odds of finding a rookie OC of quality are going to be low.

Okay. Let's look at just 2nd round centers, and go back 20 years. That's here (though some of these are guards):

My bet is there are more centers who played well as rookies than receivers from the same rounds.

Some positions, like center and LOTs, you can't afford to have sitting and learning. You draft them as early as round 2 to start, because the alternative is nothing.

  Rams draft: Who could Rams take at 57th overall?

Rams43799February 12, 2021 06:05AM

  I think the Rams are 100% targeting Amari Rodgers

  Here's the issue with Rogers.

RockRam197February 12, 2021 10:45AM

  Which is why I mention slot in the first place

merlin85February 12, 2021 01:12PM

  Best player for us on that list

  Trade down for an extra third

Ram_Ruler98February 12, 2021 11:58AM

  Snead isn't Fisher. He doesn't trade down for the sake of more picks

RockRam95February 12, 2021 12:16PM

  I honestly think that's the plan every year
