The center class is another muddled one, but as Travis Fredricks/the Dallas Cowboys taught us last year centers can go in the first when they’re not expected to. Weston Richburg is a 50 game starter and does everything you want your starting center to do, I don’t know if he is a perfect fit for a power running scheme but he is the most pro ready guy in the draft. Marcus Martin has the most upside of any of the centers and possesses the best movement skills.  Travis Swanson to me looks like a tackle playing center, but he still gets the job done most of the time and would fit well in a power running attack. Stork is a zone blocking center in my opinion. I don’t see a lot of power in his game, despite his plus size, and he was on the ground way too much.  His size does allow him to anchor and he doesn’t give up ground in pass protection.
