FSU senior C Cameron Erving debuted on Mel Kiper's center rankings at No. 1.
Reese Dismukes and Hroniss Grasu, presumably, are shaking their heads forlornly somewhere right now. Erving's upside is higher than both long-time position-ranking stalwarts, so we're with Kiper on this one. "The coaching staff had actually worked with him there in the spring, and he was outstanding when they pulled the trigger on the move during the season," the analyst wrote. Kiper wrote last week that Erving will "go in Round 2 and stick at center, but he offers the versatility to play anywhere on the line." Dec 17 - 5:48 PM

ESPN's Mel Kiper believes FSU senior C Cameron Erving will "go in Round 2 and stick at center, but he offers the versatility to play anywhere on the line."

Kiper listed Erving as a "draft riser," a sentiment that the rest of the industry agrees with. Indeed, ever since Erving moved from LT to C last month, his star has been back on the rise. "It's not a total shock that Erving was able to move from left tackle to center and succeed there," Kiper wrote. "The coaching staff tried the move in the spring, so they kept it in their back pocket. On Saturday, I loved to see how well Erving was able to execute an initial block and then get to the second level. He has great quickness for a guy his size (6-4) and he's actually risen on my board after the move."

FSU senior C Cameron Erving was outstanding on Saturday against Georgia Tech, according to Pro Football Focus, earning a +5.9 game score.

"The left tackle for FSU for most of the season, Erving has been asked to play center the past few games, and he responded in this one with a dominant performance against the undersized Georgia Tech defensive line," wrote Sam Monson. "Erving was a monster in the run game all day, manhandling defenders and giving FSU major running lanes to work with." In fact, the Seminoles, playing without RB Karlos Williams, still averaged 5.7 yards per carry running to either side of center. FSU OL coach Rick Trickett said last week that Erving has made a "seamless transition" to center, and NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah opined on Sunday that the 6-foot-6, 308-pound Erving's draft stock has "revitalized" since his positional switch. Erving's stock is on the rise.

FSU OL coach Rick Trickett said senior C Cam Erving has made a "seamless transition" to center.

This isn't just coach speak, as Weidl himself recently wrote that Erving "may have found his niche at center." NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah opined on Sunday that the 6-foot-6, 308-pound Erving's draft stock has "revitalized" since his move from left tackle to center, a shift that occurred in mid-November prior to the Miami contest. "I don't know if he'll play center in the NFL -- he could slide to guard -- but he's showing he has the potential to be a very effective interior lineman at the next level," Jeremiah wrote.

NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah believes moving from left tackle to center has "revitalized" FSU senior C Cameron Erving's draft stock.

The 6-foot-6, 308-pound Erving was moved from tackle to center prior to the Miami game. "He never really seemed comfortable at tackle, but he's moving defenders at the point of attack from the center position," Jeremiah wrote. "I don't know if he'll play center in the NFL -- he could slide to guard -- but he's showing he has the potential to be a very effective interior lineman at the next level." Jeremiah isn't the only analyst who thinks so. ESPN's Kevin Weidl wrote last week that Erving "may have found his niche at center."

ESPN's Kevin Weidl notes that FSU senior C Cameron Erving "may have found his niche at Center."

"Cam Erving may have found his niche at Center. Smooth transition and looks natural at the position. Impressive tapes vs Miami and Florida," Weidl tweeted. The 6-foot-6, 308-pound Erving was moved from tackle to center prior to the Miami game on Saturday. Head coach Jimbo Fisher said that the move was permanent. True freshman Roderick Johnson will continue to start at left tackle.

An NFC South personnel director said that FSU senior C Cameron Erving's move from tackle to center "stabilized" his team.

Erving was moved from tackle to center prior to the Miami game on Saturday. Head coach Jimbo Fisher said that the move was permanent. The NFC South personnel director who spoke to NFL.com noted that "[Erving] handled the transition very, very well" and said that he was "eager to see more of him at that spot." Draft analysts Daniel Jeremiah, Bucky Brooks, Charles Davis and Lance Zierlein noted that the move "could distinguish the fifth-year senior as a really special OL prospect and cement a first-round selection."

FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher said senior Cameron Erving will stay at C.

It is the correct moves, as the Seminoles were consistently giving up pressure in the A and B gaps and seemed to improve in that area against Miami. Despite all of the accolades, Erving was not great at left tackle and might be better suited inside in the NFL. He gets a jump start on that switch. True freshman Roderick Johnson will continue to start at left tackle.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang noted that FSU senior C Cameron Erving was "generally very accurate" with his snaps against Miami.

Previously, Erving had been starting at tackle. He just shifted to center during practice this week. The 6-foot-6, 302-pound lineman "impressed with his recognition at the new position, taking over the responsibilities to make line calls - something most teams expect from their center but wouldn't necessarily expect from a player making his first start at the position," wrote Rang. In recent weeks, Bucky Brooks of NFL.com wrote that scouts were "disappointed" in Erving and FSU's underachieving line. Rang thinks that the position change could be helpful in giving scouts something else to consider with the big man. He expects Erving to be drafted in the Top-64.

Scouts are "down on" FSU senior T Cameron Erving and the general production of the FSU offensive line, according to NFL.com's Bucky Brooks.

"FSU's offensive line might be the nation's most underachieving unit this season," said Brooks and fellow NFL analysts Charles Davis and Daniel Jeremiah. They noted that "Erving has had issues this season with speed rushers and hasn't been that strong in run-blocking, either." The 6-foot-6, 302-pound Erving was particularly exposed against Clemson's Vic Beasley back in September (Beasley recorded two sacks), in a game that Brooks said "will make evaluators pause before penciling him in as a franchise left tackle on draft boards."

NFL media analyst Bucky Brooks writes that "NFL scouts will have some questions about" FSU senior T Cameron Erving's "ability to develop into an elite left tackle" after Saturday's game against Clemson.

Erving, who dominated Beasley in 2013, had a chance to perhaps stamp his Round 1 ticket by repeating the performance on Saturday. Instead, he face planted, particularly in the first half, when Beasley went off for two sacks. "There is no doubt that Erving is one of the top offensive tackles in college football, but NFL scouts will have some questions about his ability to develop into an elite left tackle as a pro after watching him struggle against Clemson DE Vic Beasley on Saturday night," Brooks wrote. "The explosive pass rusher repeatedly blew past Erving on an assortment of speed rushes that exposed Erving's lack of lateral quickness. While Beasley is arguably the top pass rusher in the game, the fact that Erving struggled mightily against an undersized rusher with explosive first-step quickness will make evaluators pause before penciling him in as a franchise left tackle on draft boards."

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline said during Saturday's game that FSU senior T Cameron Erving looked "completely intimidated" by Clemson DE Vic Beasley "and his draft stock is taking a hit."

It would be easy to overreact to Saturday's lackluster performance (Beasley had two sacks), but don't forget that Erving erased Beasley in the same game last season. We think Saturday's game spoke more about Beasley's technical improvements than a deterioration of Erving's skills (though it's fair to say Erving probably became a bit overrated last season; his stock has stabilized now). The 6-foot-6, 302-pound Erving is NFLDraftScout.com's No. 4 senior offensive tackle.

FSU senior T Cameron Erving "used his long arms to latch on and control" Clemson senior edge rusher Vic Beasley early in Saturday's game, writes CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

Erving, NFLDraftScout.com's No. 4 senior offensive tackle, "had the upper hand" early, according to Rang, who wrote that the 6-foot-5, 304-pound former defensive tackle "used his long arms to latch on and control the Tigers' star pass rusher, showing impressive patience and balance when doing so." However, as the game wore on, Beasley took over, getting revenge for Erving's star-turning performance last year that helped FSU destroy Clemson 51-14.

NFL.com's Albert Breer writes that NFL scouts can't wait to watch the battle between FSU senior T Cameron Erving and Clemson All-American DE Vic Beasley on Saturday.

"Erving has been a fascinating one for scouts to evaluate for a couple years now -- a former defensive tackle who converted to left tackle and has flashed elite raw ability for the position," Breer wrote. The 6-foot-6, 302-pound Erving is a potential top-10 pick, but evaluators think he needs to work on the technical aspects of his game. He won't have a better chance to show them his progression than versus Beasley. "Clemson has multiple pass rushers; can he shut them down and show physicality in the run game?" an AFC college director said. "It'll be fun to watch all the Florida State OLs against the Clemson DLs." Breer concluded: "The main issue with Erving in the past has been consistency. That's one reason why a week like this one could be the difference between going in the first round, or the second/third."

Draft insider Tony Pauline ranks FSU senior T Cameron Erving as the ACC's No. 2 overall prospect.

Erving checks in behind teammate Jameis Winston in Pauline's rankings, but both have a first-round grade attached to their names. The only other ACC prospect with a first-round projection via Pauline is Clemson edge rusher Vic Beasley. The next best offensive lineman ranked is redshirt senior tackle Trevor Clemmings out of Pitt, who received a third-round tag.
