In Response to Re: ***TOP 25 DRAFT PROSPECTS***:

Everything I've read/scene on Konz has been positive below are my thoughts on him:
*He moves well, good feet.
*Really fires off the line.
*Plays with good leverage (especially for a kid listed at 6-5).
*Athletic, and looks comfortable in space, experience pulling
*Gets to the 2nd level easily.
*Is strong at the POA.
*Experience operating in the shotgun, snaps look solid.
*Excellent program pedigree.
*Needs to keep his head up when he gets to the second level, as he will overpursue his target on occasion.
*Ends up on the ground/looses balance on occasion, but generally completes his block.
*Will have to check his ankle out (dislocated it during the season).
To be honest, I wouldn't be shocked at all if he selected Konz in Rd 1 as there are plenty of rumors that BB almost took Eric Wood before eventually trading out of Rd 1. I know I've been saying that I don't expect them to go high on an OC, but I may be changing my toon after researching this kid. Not saying he'll do it as Georgia C Ben Jones in Rd 2 or 3 could provide better value, but the kid looks like a very good option at the back end of Rd 1 and per Chad Reuter (CBS Draft Scout) "there's not much difference between him and the Pouncey brothers,".
Overall, I think he's the best C in this class, though I read this AM that he's 50/50 on coming out, so we'll have to see.
