The NFL Draft will take place May 8-10 at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

Here are the top five centers and guards, according to NFL Media draft analyst Mike Mayock:

Centers

1.) MARCUS MARTIN, USC (6-3, 320 pounds)

NFL.com Bottom Line:
Outstanding-sized, barrel-chested finesse pivot with center-guard versatility… more.

2.) WESTON RICHBURG, Colorado State (6-3, 298 pounds)

NFL.com Bottom Line:
Adequate-sized, smart, experienced, competitive center who commanded the offensive line, made all the calls and was a team leader for the Rams… more.

3.) TRAVIS SWANSON, Arkansas (6-5, 312 pounds)

NFL.com Bottom Line:
Experienced, dependable pivot who lacks starter-caliber power and athleticism… more.

4.) BRYAN STORK, Florida State (6-4, 315 pounds)

NFL.com Bottom Line:
Good-sized, bump-and-steer blocker ideally suited for a zone-blocking, slide-protection scheme… more.

5.) GABE IKARD , Oklahoma (6-4, 304 pounds)

NFL.com Bottom Line:
A functional positional blocker who lacks the foot quickness, athletic ability and strength desired in a starter, yet consistently finds a way to get the job done and overcome his physical limitations… more.

Guards

1.) DAVID YANKEY, Stanford (6-6, 315 pounds)

NFL.com Bottom Line:
Big, physical, smart, serviceable offensive guard who will not score many style points, but generally gets the job done… more.

2.) XAVIER SU’A-FILO, UCLA (6-4, 307 pounds)

NFL.com Bottom Line:
Does not look the part and was miscast when forced to play left tackle for the Bruins, but Su'a-Filo is more effective than he is pretty… more.

3.) BRANDON THOMAS, Clemson (6-3, 317 pounds)

NFL.com Bottom Line:
Strong-bodied, dependable gap blocker who played left tackle in college but will likely slide inside in the pros… more.

4.) TRAI TURNER, LSU (6-3, 310 pounds)

NFL.com Bottom Line:
Turner is a squarely built interior blocker built for road grading, though he has not demonstrated the ability to dominate as a third-year sophomore draft entrant… more.

5.) GABE JACKSON, Mississippi State (6-3, 336 pounds)

NFL.com Bottom Line:
Big, thickly built, relatively nuanced blocker who brings a steadying presence to the interior offensive line... more.
