A gap blitz is irrelevant. it's not like the center is responsible for blocking everyone at once. of course there's the question of recognition and of picking up the right guy, but that's not unique to the center position. the actual concern is that he gets blown up one on one. peyton manning and wes welker are pretty good blitz-beating personnel too.
