Peter Konz scouting report

Peter Konz C Wisconsin #66
Ht: 6’5″

Wt: 315

 
Strengths:
Impressive size and strength. A nasty run blocker; gets great leverage, especially considering his height. Strong lower body allows him to hold his ground against bull rushers. Strong motor and plays with a nasty demeanor; consistently finishes off his blocks. Great awareness; keeps his head on a swivel and quick to identify blitzes. Great fundamentals in pass protection, stays low, has quick feet and excellent footwork. Impressive mobility for an interior lineman. Some experience at guard and tackle early in career. Three-year starter with plenty of experience against top competition.
Weaknesses:
Some injury concerns. Missed time in each of past three seasons with ankle injuries. Height may concern some teams, especially those with shorter quarterbacks.
Comments:
Konz is as well-rounded and polished as any center to enter the draft since Nick Mangold in 2006. Has the ability to play any position on the line if necessary, and some teams may consider him at right tackle. As long as his health checks out at the combine he’ll be a 1st-round pick, but his recurring ankle injuries are a fairly serious concern.
