Standing at 6'4" and 310 lbs, Joe Madsen is the key at center on the offensive line.
He averaged 4.2 knockdowns per game to lead the team and was named to the All-Big East second team.
Madsen has started in all 38 games in which he has played, and will start in every game (as long as he isn't injured) this season.
Eger said of Madsen's importance, "He calls the front, calls the Mike linebacker. We all have to be on the same page because if some of us think we are going this way and some think we are going that way it is going to be a mess and somebody is going to be in Geno (Smith) or the running backs faces real quick."
According to Tom Melton's NFL Draft Blog, Madsen has some areas he still needs to improve in, but is still a great run blocker for the Mountaineers.
He has the potential to get drafted because of his size, experience and football IQ thanks to his vast playing experience, but he leaves something to be desired with his technique.
So, while he may not be the best on the offensive line, his experience and leadership on and off the field will play a huge role in the line's success throughout the year.
