Bottom Line

Beaux Limmer is an underrated center prospect with NFL Guard versatility. He is one of the smartest players in the draft and has a great balance. He’s more than capable of performing reach blocks and sealing his backside to open rushing lanes. However, he struggles with athletic ability due to his lack of size and arm-length limitations.
