Today’s Spotlight - Arkansas, Center, Beaux Limmer
Name- Beaux Limmer
HT/WT- 6’5” 307 lbs
Home – Tyler,TX
Beaux Limmer attended Tyler Lee High School in Tyler, TX. He was a consensus three-star prospect by Rivals, 247Sports and ESPN, and was rated the #67 tackle in the nation by 247Sports. He committed to Arkansas over offers from Missouri, Oklahoma State, and Baylor.
As a true freshman in 2019, Limmer played in four games and according to Pro Football Focus he did not allow a sack or a quarterback hit while playing right guard. In 2020 as a redshirt sophomore he played in seven games, starting five at right guard. In 2021 he played in 13 games and started 11 at right guard. He helped lead the way for four Razorbacks to rush for 500 yards for the first time in Arkansas history.
He started the first 12 games at right guard in 2022 before getting the nod to play center in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl. He earned Second-Team All-SEC and Third-Team All-America honors. He has made a full transition to play center in 2023 and enters the season as a Draft 412 preseason Second-Team All-American selection
Limmer is a good athlete who plays with a solid low base. He plays with natural agility and has quick hands to get inside the defender fast and early. NFL GM’s will love his versatility and can be a starter at guard or center. He plays with a nasty side and is always looking for the next guy to hit. He stands up well to bull rushes and has satisfactory strength to grapple with larger opponents.
Limmer is not as efficient at blocking on the move and will scuffle making plays at the second level. Though he starts with a great base, at times he comes out of his stance too upright and loses leverage on defenders. He can be over aggressive at times and take unnecessary penalties when the play isn’t around him.
After doing analysis on Beaux Limmer, Draft 412 had a feeling we just did a profile like this; and we were right. John Michael Schmitz was a second round pick in this past year's draft out of Minnesota. Another collegiate offensive lineman who can play anywhere on the interior and get the job done.

2nd level blocking
Beaux Limmer may not be the flashiest player selected in next year’s draft, but he should be a long term reliable player with versatility.
