Pro Football Focus Ranks Creed Humphrey as the NFL’s Best Center

By Jayson Henderson

Only three years into his NFL career, Creed Humphrey has been ranked as the top center in the league by Pro Football Focus. Humphrey, who plays for the Kansas City Chiefs, surpassed Jason Kelce in the 2023 rankings and is now considered the best center in the NFL following Kelce’s retirement.

Humphrey allowed just 16 pressures last season and earned a 78.2 overall grade, ranking seventh at his position. His teammates Joe Thuney and Trey Smith also received high marks, ranking fifth and thirteenth among offensive guards, respectively.

Other Chiefs who earned top spots in PFF’s positional rankings include quarterback Patrick Mahomes, defensive tackle Chris Jones, tight end Travis Kelce, cornerback Trent McDuffie, linebacker Nick Bolton, linebacker Drue Tranquill, and tailback Isiah Pacheco.
