Conference: Big Ten
Biography: Three-year starter awarded all-conference honors since his sophomore season. Named to several All-American teams after his junior campaign.

Positives: Tough, nasty center with an all-around game. Explosive at the point, displays a large degree of quickness and rarely gives up an inch to defenders. Blocks with good knee bend, gets leverage on opponents and is strong at the point. Gets movement run blocking, turns opponents off the line and works hard to finish off blocks. Displays the ability to adjust and pick up stunts or blitzes thrown by opponents. Keeps his head on a swivel, works well with teammates and displays a nice degree of awareness. Effective with shotgun snaps. Fluid moving on his feet and gets out to the second level then removes linebackers from the action.

Negatives: Lacks great footwork in pass protection. Not a power blocking lineman.

Analysis: Konz made a positive impact on Wisconsin's offensive line as a freshman and has been improving ever since. He possesses the skill to start in a variety of offensive systems at the next level and comes with a lot of upside. Konz should quickly break into a starting lineup in the NFL and stay there for years to come.

Projection: 1-2
