Humphrey grew up watching the Sooners and wrestling like his father, Chad, who grappled at the University of Central Oklahoma. The first-team all-state pick at Shawnee High School redshirted in 2017 before taking over the starting center spot in 12 of 14 games played in 2018, when he earned Freshman All-American and honorable mention All-Big 12 honors while helping the front five win the Joe Moore Award as the nation's top offensive line. Humphrey sat out spring 2019 practices due to injury but was ready for the fall, garnering Rimington Trophy finalist, second-team Associated Press All-American and Big 12 Co-Offensive Lineman of the Year accolades as a 14-game starter. The 2020 team captain and 11-game starter was named a third-team AP All-American, Big 12 Offensive Lineman of the Year and first-team all-conference center as a junior. He accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl. -- by Chad Reuter

Overview
Savvy, game-wise center with below-average length, good core strength and a full slate of intangibles desired at that position. Humphrey is praised inside the building for his outstanding leadership and having the recognition to make all the calls up front. He's more of a positional blocker than fork-lifter but has the core strength to neutralize and stalemate blockers at the point of attack. He's not a plus athlete but he's athletic enough as a move blocker, with the ability to work his feet into position to finish blocks after contact. He plays with a nasty streak when needed, which will appeal to offensive line coaches, but his overall profile might be more "steady" than "star." Humphrey is a solid, safe selection and should become a longtime starter.

Strengths
  • Three-year starter and two-year team captain.
  • Undeniable team leader and tough individual.
  • Wrestling background is evident in core strength.
  • Strong hands help maintain base block.
  • Looks to work hands into position after losing battle early.
  • Swings hips into position to seal the block.
  • Fluid footwork for short-pull game.
  • Finishes blocks with good intensity.
  • Technique to trap and pancake leaning nose.
  • Hands in punch were tighter and more accurate at Senior Bowl.
  • Helps with cleanup when teammates' protection gets leaky.
  • Capable in recovery mode.

Weaknesses
  • Very short arms for his size, allowing defenders to get shots into his frame.
  • Longer defenders separate and discard him.
  • Will give some early ground against strong bull rush.
  • Occasional drift against twisting fronts.
  • Susceptible against push-pull specialists.
  • Snap-to-step lateral quickness is average.
  • Doesn't generate noticeable push as a drive blocker at point of attack.
  • Gets a little grabby through contact on the move.

Sources Tell Us
"He was the best offensive lineman on the team when they won the Joe Moore Award (best offensive line in college football) and that line had everybody drafted, which speaks volumes for his ability." -- Southwest area scout for AFC team

I didnt see many replays yesterday. Missed a lot of stuff.

Also really weird was my cable feed on National TV was 30-60 seconds behind my buddy on East Coast. He told me what happened before I saw on TV.

I hope someone posts a gif. It was one of the worst holding calls I can remember.

Cost us a TD. The offense literally scored at will on that Browns defense

Watching “Inside the NFL” (on Paramount+ this year instead of Showtime, weird), and they showed a 4 second clip of something interesting that Creed does, that, holy shit, is awesome and probably led to some offsides in addition to our crowd noise and Pat’s hard-count.

He twitches his fingers on the ball like he’s playing the piano. I’ve never seen it before. Dude grips and re-grips and re-grips the ball with just his fingers and is DEFINITELY going to cause some dudes to jump early this year.

This dude is another reason PFF is bullshit.

He had 41 pass blocking snaps. He allowed 0 sacks, hits, or pressures. He graded out at like a 70 in pass protection and was about middle of the pack leaguewide.

Keep in mind, we were trailing so the Browns knew we would be passing (also because Mahomes but especially when trailing).

How the fuck does that level of performance equal a 70 in pass protection?

Well, he had 11 expected pressures for the game, which are pressures that SHOULD have taken place.

He and Mahomes really need to concern themselves with their expected stats more than the real ones if they ever want to see their PFF scores go up.

Lol what is an expected pressure? How is that even determined?

Like Mahomes high potential INT quotient that made him ranked the 4th best QB per PFF

Not true, he offered to learn to snap right handed but Mahomes told him he should stay with his left.

Fantastic pick so far.
Those snaps made me very nervous. Few floated, few rocketed flat and low. Mahomes has amazing hands, but I was worried one was going to shoot over his head. Hopefully it was mostly nerves from his first start.

They graded his pass protection closer to 80 I think, which is elite, and excellent for a rookie. The mystery is given they're as bullish as anyone on the "passing game matters more than anything" argument, how was his overall grade closer to 70?

He has to fix his snaps. Never seen slower shotgun snaps.
