Steelers signed Auburn C Reese Dismukes.
Dismukes (6'3/296) won the 2014 Rimington Trophy as the nation's top center, finishing his time at Auburn with two first-team All-SEC selections and 50 starts. He showed passable athleticism in Indianapolis, running 5.31 with a 27 1/2-inch vertical and 8-foot-11 broad jump. An undersized, high-effort scrapper, Dismukes can only play center and has a ceiling of "functional starter" despite his decorated college resume. May 4 - 12:48 AM

NFLDraftScout.com's Frank Cooney advises that Auburn C Reese Dismukes "needs to be drafted by a team that is looking for an alert technician rather than a brutish blocker."

The analyst is emphatic that Dismukes "is not a fit for just any team." Dismukes nearly declared for last year's draft, but elected to return to school. "He returned to improve his technique, but he still had trouble coping with powerful nose tackles, which scouts still noted at the Senior Bowl workouts," Cooney wrote. "But he definitely has the drive and ability to fit into the right offense." Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com's senior analyst, also believes Dismukes is only a fit for a specific type of team: "Dismukes is strong enough to drive defenders off the ball but is best suited to a zone-blocking scheme where he can fully take advantage of his efficient movement to turn and seal defenders from the action."

ESPN's Mel Kiper notes that Auburn C Reese Dismukes "is still a likely Day 2 selection."

Dismukes came into the season as the No. 1 center on most analysts' boards, but he's been a forgotten man recently for a variety of reasons. One of those reasons was the shift of Cameron Erving (Florida St.) to center. Erving is now the consensus No. 1 center, sliding Dismukes and Hroniss Grasu (Oregon) down a peg. The 6-foot-2, 300-pound Dismukes "was a highly decorated SEC center as part of Auburn's explosive offense, but his physical shortcomings were accentuated [at Senior Bowl] practice," NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein wrote last month.

Auburn C Reese Dismukes "is a really smart, tough football player," said NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock.

"And if I've learned one thing in the last 10 years it's that smart, tough, interior offensive linemen play in the league for a long time," Mayock said. "He might not go 'til the fourth or fifth round, but it doesn't matter. He's a smart, tough center; he'll find his way in the NFL." The 6-foot-2, 300-pounder requested an evaluation from the draft advisory board last winter and nearly declared for the draft early. He's a possible Day 2 pick.

Auburn senior C Reese Dismukes "was a highly decorated SEC center as part of Auburn's explosive offense, but his physical shortcomings were accentuated [at Senior Bowl] practice," wrote NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein.

"Dismukes struggled to consistently anchor up in one-on-one drills on Thursday and was unable to sway scouts that question his ability to block on the move and play with consistent functional strength," Zierlein wrote. The 6-foot-2, 300-pounder requested an evaluation from the draft advisory board last winter and nearly declared for the draft early. He returned to school, but doesn't at present moment look likely to be the top-50 pick some had believed he would become.

Auburn senior C Reese Dismukes accepted a Senior Bowl invitation.

Dismukes is one of the top centers in the nation. The 6-foot-2, 300-pounder requested an evaluation from the draft advisory board last winter and nearly declared for the draft early. CBS Sports' Rob Rang wrote over the summer that Dismukes "looks like a good bet to challenge for a top 50 selection next spring." NFL.com's Gil Brandt is also on record stating a top 50 pick is realistic.

Auburn senior C Reese Dismukes only allowed on hurry on 39 pass protection snaps versus Mississippi State, according to Pro Football Focus.

Dismukes posted a + 4.8 overall grade, including a + 4.1 score in the running game. "The Auburn offensive line is often difficult to evaluate in the running game as they create so much backfield deception... regardless, it was a strong effort by Dismukes who opened holes in the running game throughout the afternoon," writes Steve Palazzolo. Dismukes requested an evaluation from the draft advisory board last winter.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang believes Auburn senior C Reese Dismukes is "best suited to a zone-blocking scheme."

"Dismukes is strong enough to drive defenders off the ball but is best suited to a zone-blocking scheme where he can fully take advantage of his efficient movement to turn and seal defenders from the action," Rang wrote. The 6-foot-2, 300 pound Dismukes, was first-team All-SEC in his junior year for the Tigers and almost entered the 2014 NFL draft, but decided to return for his senior year. According to Rang, Dismukes "looks like a good bet to challenge for a top 50 selection next spring."

NFL.com's Gil Brandt sees Auburn senior C Reese Dismukes as a potential top-50 pick in the 2015 draft.

"He is a good run blocker and a very smart player," Brandt wrote. The 6-foot-2, 300 pounder was first-team All-SEC last year. Dismukes requested an evaluation from the NFL Draft Advisory Board. We never heard the results of that inquiry, though AL.com reported in January that Dismukes would likely have been "selected in the late rounds" if he had decided to forgo his senior year. Dismukes was Mel Kiper's No. 5 rated center prior to announcing his decision to return to school.

Auburn junior C Reese Dismukes requested an evaluation from the NFL Draft Advisory Board.

"I mean, I'm kind of just doing that to get a look at it," Dismukes said. "I'm not really sure, I'm not really thinking about it right now." Auburn is in danger of losing redshirt sophomore left tackle Greg Robinson to the NFL, but it seems as though Dismukes is more likely to return.

Auburn sophomore C Reese Dismukes will play in Saturday's game against Mississippi State after missing the Tigers first game while under suspension.

Dismukes started all 13 games last season was an arrest for public intoxication led to a suspension. Despite being the projected starter at the position, head coach Gene Chizik is unsure if Dismukes will start on Saturday. We're going to wait and see how the week unfolds, and we'll make that determination later in the week," Chizik said. The Tigers allowed a few free rushers up the middle against Clemson, so pre-snap recognition could be Dismukes' ticket to the starting lineup.

Auburn starting sophomore C Reese Dismukes was arrested on Friday for public intoxication and has been suspended indefinitely.

Dismukes started all 13 games last season and was expected to add a veteran presence for new sophomore QB Kiehl Frazier. It is unknown if he will be eligible to play for the Tigers opener versus Clemson. Infrequently used backup Tunde Fariyike may start in Dismukes place, or perhaps a veteran guard could shift over one spot.
