Scouting Report Of Humphrey

As per his scouting report, Humphrey, who started 39 games in his three collegiate seasons, has limitless potential.

The player has been a competitive wrestler since he was four years old. All thanks to a family of grapplers, which shows in his superb hand-to-hand skills on game day.

His general physique is athletic, not at all sloppy for a 316-pounder, and he has a very thick foundation and bottom half with a wide body shoulder to shoulder.

Likewise, the player is solid, showing up as a freshman squatting 600 pounds or more. He is a solid pass-protection anchor and a mauler in the run game.

In 2018, Creed served as the offensive line’s center for the Sooners, who won the Joe Moore Award and had four starters selected in the NFL draft.

The player displayed an exceptional level of maturity by making all the decisions and modifications before the snap and exhibiting superb awareness of second-level blocks.

NFL Draft & Career With Kansas City Chiefs

Creed Humphrey’s NFL dream finally came true on April 30, 2021. The Kansas City Chiefs picked him as the 63rd overall pick in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft.

The Chief’s evaluation of Humphrey described him as a sound, clever, steady pivot with a wrestling background.

Humphrey, who was selected 63rd overall, not only received the highest Pro Football Focus grade of any center in the NFL in 2018 but of any center since 2017.

The player was also rated as the fourth-best offensive lineman in the NFL by PFF in 2021, regardless of position.

In the 2021 NFL season, Humphrey allowed just seven pressures in eight games across 400 pass-blocking snaps. He had a 93.8 PFF grade as a run blocker, which is second only to Trent Williams among all offensive linemen.

Creed started all 17 regular season games as a rookie, the 17th in franchise history to start all regular season games in the rookie season. He allowed only one sack (seven yards) in the 2021 season.

During the 2021-22 playoff, the Kansas City Chiefs offensive linesman started in 3 games before a defeat against Cincinnati Bengals at AFC Championship.

Rookie Of The Year But Not In The Pro Bowl

There are many prospective impact players in the Senior Bowl every year, but when the season is considered, one participant stands out above the others.

On April 21, 2022, the Senior Bowl named Creed the 2021 Rookie of the Year.

In regards to the achievement, Creed said:

“I am beyond thankful for the opportunity to have competed at the Senior Bowl. I am extremely honored to be the Senior Bowl Rookie of the Year.”

He was recognized alongside Senior Bowl’s Hall of Famers.

The week-long tournament is a springboard for talent that frequently translates to the next level, and Humphrey is the latest example. The event includes multiple practices aimed at demonstrating each prospect’s ability.

But another accolade seemed to have missed Humphrey’s door. Well, the left-handed rookie center was not on the Kansas City Chiefs’ 2021 Pro Bowl list nor for the 2022 Pro Bowl.

 Let’s hope big for another season.
