Humphrey grew up as a wrestler but soon made the transition to football where he showcased his skills for the Sooners. Graded as a four-star prospect by 247Sports out of high school, Humphrey was one of the nation's top center prospects and as a senior before committing to Oklahoma. He was a Rimington Trophy finalist, second-team Associated Press All-American, and received Big 12 Co-Offensive Lineman of the Year accolades as a 14-game starter in 2019. Humphrey is one of the few left-handed centers in the country.
- Has the agility and technique to contribute early in his professional career. Quick, active hands to latch on to defenders.
- Good foot quickness to remain outside. Can get to the second level with surprising agility when adjusting to moving defenders. Underrated athleticism, agility, balance, and even straight-line speed to contribute.
- Where Humphrey wins as a blocker is with his upper body. He frequently is able to turn defensive tackles and leverage them away from the play, showing good core strength and flexibility.
- He has a high IQ to meet the desired physical attributes and will help solidify a team’s offensive line.
- Has the feet to adjust when he anticipates what's coming. Effective trapping and bends at the knees with adequate core strength to absorb the bull rush. Can clear a path at the second level if he hits the target.
- He controlled the A-gaps as a left-handed center and used his frame to out-leverage interior defenders across from him.
- Is slightly undersized for the position
- Will punch at smaller defenders instead of latching on and is more of a mauler than mover in the running game. Can improve maintaining outside leverage when doubling the nose. Ducks his head and gets too upright, causing him to fall off second-level blocks.
- A short-area blocker with limited range and doesn't consistently get to the second level. Will play undisciplined at times, especially in space.
- Attacks when necessary, though he won't consistently dominate and can lose balance overextending.
Creed had excellent performance in the athletic testing portion of the Sooners’ Pro Day workout last week. , where he recorder unofficial times of 5.09 seconds in the 40-yard dash, 4.46 seconds in the shuttle, and 7.54 seconds in the 3-cone drill while posting a 33-inch vertical and a 9-feet, 4-inch broad jump with 29 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press.
Humphrey is the top center in this year's draft, and after a great workout at his pro-day is shooting up draft boards, and could even be the first interior lineman selected. We evaluate him as late a first-round talent but may fall to the second because he is somewhat undersized.
