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.
