Report Prepared: February 19, 2012

Hard to fault a 3-year starter from the OL factory in Madison . . . Konz can also play OG, but in this weak center class he will be snapping the ball. The comparison to Mangold may be a stretch (and maybe even motivate him) but Peter has the potential to be a top center in the NFL, as he has a solidly-built frame with good muscle definition.

In pass blocking, Konz starts with a naturally wide base off the snap (providing steady balance in his stance). His technique is solid, as he sinks his hips and maintains leverage with a consistent pad level. His upper body strength is evident as he gets his hands into opponents with excellent placement, and his strong hands allow him to sustain blocks for an extended period of time. Konz is unusually tall for the center position and will get too high at times.

Peter is a physical run blocker with raw power and strength at the point of attack, attaining a good initial push off the snap. He understands blocking angles and positions his body well, walling off defenders to seal run lanes. Although he does not possess a quick-twitch, Konz sets up quickly, plays with good leverage and moves well in space with his head up, always looking for someone to block. Tough and aggressive, this center is a natural leader of an offensive line . . . if he overcomes questions about his durability, would be an excellent 1st round investment.
