NHL Draft 2011: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and the 10 Best Centers of the Draft

The 2011 NHL Draft is considered to have one of the deepest talent pools in recent years, specifically at the center position.  

In the top 10 picks alone, it's possible that as many as six centers will hear their names called by NHL General Managers, and four may be gone by the time the sixth pick rolls around.  

Fittingly, the consensus top prospect for this year's draft is Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, a talented center from the Red Deer Rebels in the Western Hockey League.  He's virtually a lock to be taken by Edmonton with the first pick in the draft, and there are a number of other talented pivots who could be tabbed soon after. 

Though it's nearly impossible to predict what order they'll be drafted in, here's a look at the 10 best center available in the 2011 NHL Draft.
