Ricky Stromberg - Commanders OL

Initially, Ricky Stromberg would have been a little lower on this about a week ago. But the release of Chase Roullier raised his stock.

The center position has been a bit tricky for the Washington Commanders in recent years as the spot has been a revolving door. Roullier, Tyler Larsen, and Nick Martin all started at various stages of the campaign without much consistency attached.

Larsen started a majority of the 2022 season for the Commanders. So there is a good chance he can become the No. 1 at the beginning of the new campaign.

However, the team signed Nick Gates from the New York Giants in free agency, who started all of 2020 for them. Thus, making the position battle more interesting.

Stromberg had a strong college career being a four-year starter. The offensive lineman was First Team All-SEC in his senior year, with his NFL Scouting Combine projection coming with starting-caliber qualities.

The center position will be an interesting situation to monitor this offseason. And after Roullier's release, Stromberg has a chance to make an immediate impact.
