The one player who makes a repeat appearance from my previous article, offensive lineman Tyler Biadasz may be the best interior blocker in a draft full of top blocking talent.
To the credit of current 49ers center Weston Richburg, his play has improved this season now that he’s healthy, but Pro Football Focus only grades him as a mediocre starting center at a 59.0 score.
In short, he can be upgraded.
Since nothing has changed from previous article, I’ll go ahead and quote myself here:
"Center Tyler Biadasz may be the best interior blocker in college football. And with interior blocking more and more important in the passing era of the NFL today, Biadasz may be picked earlier than people suspect. What makes Biadasz such an attractive prospect is his ability to protect in both the pass and run game. He’s strong but also agile, and uses that combination of strength and speed (as well as technique) to be a premium blocker."
Nothing has changed from my previous assessment. It may not be the sexiest pick for the first round, but Biadasz is a strong and safe choice to upgrade the interior of the 49ers’ offensive line.
