College: Ohio State
Position: Offensive Guard/Center
Billy Price high school
Price came out of high school as a highly recruited Defensive Tackle and Offensive Guard. He was rated as high as the number 17 Defensive Tackle in the nation by 247Sports. His move to Offensive Line paid off. He came out of high school as a top 200 player (Rivals). And now Price is a top 100 NFL draft prospect on the NFL Draft Board.
Billy Price Ohio State
Although some mock drafts list Price as a Guard, he moved to Center in 2017 for his senior year. Pat Elfein made the same move for Ohio State from Guard to Center in 2015-2016. The move worked out for Pat Elfein. The Minnesota Vikings drafted Elfein in the third round with the 70th pick. Oddly enough, Price is currently ranked as the 75th player on the NFL Draft Board. So, Price could be drafted in a very similar position as his predecessor, Pat Elfein.
Elfein is the current starting Center for the Minnesota Vikings.
Price made All-Big 10 third team (coaches) as a sophomore in 2015. In 2016 he made first team All-Big 10 (multiple sources) as a junior.
Ohio State offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson said J.T. Barrett and Billy Price are the “two best practice players consistently” on offense.

Billy Price NFL prospects
Billy Price is ranked as the number 75 player overall on the NFL Draft Board. Price is the number three Center/Guard on the NFL Draft Board.
Not many Centers/Guards are showing up in the first round of 2018 NFL mock Drafts. The latest trends in NFL mock Drafts go to Offensive Tackles over Guards and Centers.
Seventy-five puts Price somewhere in the third round. But he is rated on the high end of the Center/Guard position at number three. If there is any kind of run on Center/Guards, Price could be snatched up sooner. But I don’t see Price going higher than the second round.
