07/27/2012 - Top-five Utah prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 3. OC Tevita Stevens...While his Pac-12 counterpart Khaled Holmes from USC is nearly universally viewed as the top center prospect in not only the conference but the country, Stevens is quietly well regarded by talent evaluators, as well. Stevens, who is entering his fourth season as a starter, originally earned his way onto the field at right guard, playing in all 13 games and starting 10 in 2009. He didn't allow a single sack while starting all 13 games (12 at right guard, one at center) in 2010 and was asked to make the move to the pivot full-time as a junior, where he finished second behind only star offensive tackle Tony Bergstrom (selected by the Oakland Raiders in third round) with an 83% overall grade. Like the Trojans' Holmes, Stevens is at his best playing short-area football, as he lacks the top-notch athleticism that has helped the likes of Peter Konz and the Pouncey twins (among others) earn picks in the top two rounds of their respective drafts. Stevens has a wide lower half and uses his size and strength to consistently knock defenders on their heels at the snap, creating good running lanes for White to run through. He is alert in pass protection and plays with good knee bend, showing the ability to anchor against hard-charging linebackers, as well powerful interior defensive linemen. Likely to be viewed by some NFL scouts as a better fit back at right guard than center, Stevens ranks as one of the better and more underrated "second-tier" interior linemen I've scouted thus far this summer. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
