Dohnovan West is another interior offensive lineman on this list who provides position flexibility. He has spent some time at guard during his time with the Sun Devils but was then moved inside to center. While not a massive man, he does have a thick frame with broad shoulders.

West isn’t overly athletic but the name of his game is violence. He attacks his man with vicious and active hands and doesn’t hesitate to chuck them to the ground if he can. While he doesn’t move as well as some other centers in this class, he can get to the second level and make blocks that spring runs for big gains.

One other positive about Dohonovan West is that he has a wrestling background. He understands angles, and leverage and knows how to use them to his advantage. We saw how well that worked out for Creed Humphrey last year, and perhaps West can have similar success with that skill set.

It’s a little uncertain when West will come off the board. Some sites have him going off the board on Day 2, and on others, he falls deep into the draft’s third day. The Vikings definitely need to be aware of this player as his aggression and nastiness would be a welcome addition to an offensive line that has been far too soft in recent seasons.
