Packers want Dietrich-Smith to start at Center

According to multiple sources, the Packers want Evan Dietrich-Smith to start at Center for them in 2013. Smith took over the position late last season from Jeff Saturday. 

For the Packers, this move was an easy one. After Smith replaced Saturday last year, Rodgers got better protection and was able to run a much smoother offense. I guess there are some other options available, and I doubt that this decision is already official. But come preseason, expect to see Smith playing the first few series for the offense. If he is throughout the season, the longtime problem of protecting #12 will be near gone.
