Luigs was a freshman All American in 2005, playing both guard and center for the Razorbacks. He moved over to center as a sophomore, and has held that spot the past two seasons, earning All American honors both seasons. Last year, Luigs was named the Rimington Award winner, given to the best center in college football. He did not repeat for that award, but did earn All SEC honors as a senior.
Luigs is a physical lineman that is always looking to put a body on a defender. He battles on every snap and will not be outworked on the field. Luigs shows good mobility and should have no problems getting out and pulling to help his backs get to the perimeter. He sets up quickly and seals off his man to create running lanes. He was a huge part of the success for Darren McFadden and Felix Jones, both first round picks last April.
From a physical standpoint, there really isnít anything Luigs stands out at. He has good feet and mobility, but he is not the most athletic lineman, and he struggles with powerful interior lineman. He does not have the strength to drive defenders off the line. He relies more on toughness and tenacity to create running lanes which is nice, but he could have problems when asked to push his man back.
Luigs is a talented lineman that will play in the NFL. He may not dominate in any aspect, but you know what to expect from him every Sunday. That consistency and toughness will help any football team.
