Draft Depth C

Postby DarthMonk » Fri Mar 16, 2012 9:03 pm

By Charlie Campbell:

Peter Konz, 6-5, 314
While his Combine performance doesn't help, when teams go back and look at the tape of last season, Konz's stock figures to get a boost. The junior produced a stack of dominant tapes for NFL evaluators in 2011. He played well against future draft picks like Michigan State's Jerel Worthy and Nebraska's Jared Crick. The Badgers have had a fabulous running offense, and Konz is an excellent run blocker. He seals holes well, gets to the second level, and puts defenders on the ground regularly. Konz did a solid job in pass protection for quarterback Russell Wilson.

Philip Blake, 6-3, 311
Throughout 2011, Blake was an excellent pass protector for Robert Griffin III, and opened up holes in the ground game for running back Terrance Ganaway. Blake is a good athlete for his size. He has the strength to push tackles aside and surprising quickness to hit blocks on linebackers. For the past two years, Blake was the starter at center, but he began his collegiate career at tackle.

Ben Jones, 6-2, 303
To start the season, Jones had a rough performance against Boise State and really struggled with defensive tackle Billy Winn. Jones (6-3, 316) allowed a sack and way too much pressure up the middle of the defense. After that game, he played really well for most of the year. Jones was a solid run blocker and improved his pass protection. He did not play well against LSU and Michigan State. Jones is a bigger center who would be a fit in a power-run scheme, and he will need to get better as a pass rusher.

Michael Brewster, 6-4, 312
On the plus side, Brewster is an intelligent technician who typically won his block at the college level. He is well-rounded as a run blocker and pass blocker. Early in the season, Brewster had excellent games against Miami defensive tackle Marcus Forston, and Nebraska defensive tackles Jared Crick and Baker Steinkuhler. In the NFL, Brewster may excel in a passing-led offense or a zone-blocking run scheme rather than a power-running attack

David Molk, 6-1, 298
Molk was a good college player, and he was the 2011 Remington Trophy recipient. Molk is a fast and mobile blocker who did a nice job of opening up running holes and protecting quarterback Denard Robinson. Molk was undersized when he played at Michigan prior to his Combine weigh-in. Based off his collegiate performance, at the next level, Molk would be best in a zone-blocking scheme. He didn't display the size and power for a man-blocking scheme, but that was before his Combine weigh-in. Now other teams could give consideration to Molk since he isn't in the 280s any more.

All these guys are projected to start in the NFL eventually. I've yellow highlighted those projected to go after the 2nd round. I've also bolded RGIII's center. Would love to get him.

Blake almost sounds like a no-brainer if we're in the market and he falls to us. Familiarity with the new franchise QB, strong, and quick.

We're taking RG3 in the 1st and we don't have a 2nd.

I hope we get Blake in the 3rd.
Hail Robert Griffin III!

Yeah Blake would be a nice pick up since center/qb familiarity is so important. However if he doesn't last Molk could be a diamond in the rough in the 5th rnd. He's not big but has one NASTY NASTY mean streak and would be perfect for the ZBS

+1...not big, but strong and athletic. Would be a great addition in the later rounds if blake is taken. Reminds me of a jeff saturday type. And he's used to playing for an athletic qb
