06/05/14 - Kansas State's top NFL Draft-Eligible prospects to watch in 2014: 4. C B.J. Finney, RS Senior...A former walk on, Finney is entering his fourth season as the Wildcats' starting center, earning First Team All-Big 12 honors the last two seasons. He has a stout body type and is not an easy guy to move from his spot, exhibiting excellent toughness in the trenches. Finney has quick snap and set up, but also gets too high and straight-legged in his stance, relying too much on his upper body to get the job done.
He is mobile enough to get to the second level and uses body angles very well, but needs to refine his hand placement, often landing his grip outside his target and getting tossed aside. Finney plays like a veteran and won't make many mistakes, but also doesn't have too many excitable traits for the NFL level. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
