Peter Konz, C, Wisconsin

Centers rarely push for first round attention; and if they do, it is only one per year. That said, Konz' stock is on the rise and he will certainly contend to be that player in 2012. Konz has great size for a center and uses all of his 315 pounds to his advantage. Whether he is in pass protection, making calls along the line, or bum-rushing defensive linemen as a run blocker, there aren't many holes in his game.

Wisconsin has produced a ton of great offensive line prospects over the years and Konz is another prospect who will fulfill that tradition if he opts to enter the draft this year. When the Badgers played Michigan State, he played very well against fellow 2012 NFL Draft defensive tackle prospect Jerel Worthy. Depending upon the statistician, Konz pancaked him as well. Those games against comparable NFL talent are what scouts really like to watch and from that film alone, he should be able to impress.

Konz does an excellent job of finding any blitzing linebackers, releasing from a double-team and sliding into position to make a block. His run blocking is great and if need be, he could fill-in at guard for most NFL teams. Konz does well to find the middle linebacker on every play and very rarely is Wisconsin's line caught off guard. He is able to quickly create running lanes up the middle by exploding into defenders and knocking them off their pursuit angles.
