Now since we got that introduction out of the way let’s get on with the actual magic of the article. With the Return of DraftRite & The ACF comes a go big or go home type. As most of y’all know I’m more of a in the trenches specialist, before I started taking risks outside of my comfort zone with skills positions. Well time to go back to the roots with a star of the 2020 College Football Season & the 2021 Senior Bowl. *Starts playing Billy Ray Cyrus’ I Want My Mullet Back in the background* The one, the only, Starting Center from the University of Oklahoma, CREED HUMPHREY!!!

Whew! Now that we got all that taken care of now we can go onto film analysis & thoughts.

When watching film on this gentleman from 2 of the 2020 games(Missouri St & Florida), Senior Bowl practice, and a few interviews, I could immediately tell this guy was a born communicator, leader, and certified strong man with the talent ready for the next level. Before actually sitting down and watching the film more in-depth, he wasn’t exactly what I was looking for in a definite “I want him on the Ravens as our new developed Center now!” After having a very knowledgable colleague & friend of mine constantly convince everyone(including I) that this dude is the real deal and our favorite team needs him, I decided to go ahead and give it a shot. And boy he was right, I can hear the “I told you so” now. Creed’s physical/mental & leadership skill set is definitely a hot commodity.

This guy gets down low and pushes people around during run schemes, and during pass pro uhh, lets just say you aren’t getting buy unless he passes you off to his Guards & his guards slip up and let them through. His footwork was legit, stance was all there, handwork is on par for top NFL caliber blocking. The way he flowed to the next level when it was time too was like floating comfortably on tube on the lazy river to people watching & OL enthusiasts but for the defensive players it would’ve been like a Duramax/Cummins/whatever Ford trucks have coming at you head on then black smoking you once they get ahead of you. Communication is also key, you could tell in most pass pros or even rushing plays that he led the way with smooth handoffs of defensive players trying to rush the QB to his fellow OL unit. I swear I was about to do something that was NSFW after watching that amazing play. Anyways, also if I have to nit pick anything constructive or negative to say is that there were times where he got a little too high in his stance. Surprisingly he didn’t get beat but that just show that dude is real!

So I think it’s about time to start wrapping this up now. At the end of the day, any team that picks Mr. Humphrey up is getting a great guy out of him both on and off the field. They won’t be disappointed in what they get, easily Round 1 or early-mid round 2 pick. Biased I’m sitting here with a hashtag #ComeToTheRavens, but only time will tell and the Draft is fast approaching! We’ll see what happens!
