PLAYERS
David Molk
Round 7, Pick 226
Position: C
Class:  Sr
School: Michigan
HT: 6'1"
WT: 288 lbs.
40 Time: 5.2
Conference: Big Ten
Biography: Four-year starter awarded all-conference honors the past two seasons and named to numerous All-American teams as a senior.

Positives: Slightly undersized yet explosive lineman who is best blocking on the move. Fires into blocks, plays with good pad level and gets leverage on opponents. Moves well on his feet, quickly gets to the second level and seals linebackers from the action. Keeps his feet moving throughout the play, stays square and works blocks hard. Keeps his head on a swivel, effectively quarterbacks the offensive line and plays smart football with a nasty attitude. Effective with the shotgun snap.

Negatives: Lacks bulk and gets overwhelmed at the point of attack. Struggles handling one-on-one assignments and rarely finishes blocks. Coming off a foot injury which required surgery to repair.

Analysis: Molk has been productive and, for the most part, very durable during his Michigan career. He plays tough, intelligent football, which more than makes up for his lack of physical stature. Most productive in motion, Molk is a terrific prospect for a zone blocking team.

Projection: 4th
