Notes:
A four-year letterman and three-year starter, Mangold was a finalist for the Rimington Award as the top center in the nation, and was a Second-Team All-Big Ten selection in 2005...One of the top centers in the draft, Mangold paved the way for a Buckeye offense that averaged 422 yards a game, including 617 yards in the Fiesta Bowl against Notre Dame...Appeared in 45 career games, making 33 starts...Made all the calls up front as a junior and a senior...Has great power at the point of attack...Effective at pulling and trapping...Tough player and a great competitor...Quick enough to handle speedy inside rushers...Doesn't have the lower body strength to handle more bulky defensive tackles...Needs to improve change of direction skills.
