2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Alex Linnenkohl, C, Oregon State
After redshirting in 2006 and playing in just two games as a freshman in 2007, Linnenkohl moved into a starting role and never gave it up. For his efforts he earned Pac-10 Conference Honorable Mention accolades in 2008 and 2009 and never missed a start during those two seasons. Linnenkohl moved up in the conference's pecking order during his senior season and was named to the All-Conference Second-Team.
The poor 2010 season for the Beavers has diminished Linnenkohl's draft status. However, Linnenkohl can separate himself from some other centers during some of the pre-draft workouts. He has solid instincts and is strong and athletic enough to be a solid player at the next level. Right now there is not much buzz about Linnenkohl, but he has some time to change that and emerge as a mid-round selection by April.
