Wisconsin C Peter Konz declared for the NFL draft on Tuesday, the school announced. Konz started 31 games at center for the Badgers over the last three seasons.
"As you've probably heard, I have decided to forgo my senior season and enter the NFL draft," Konz said. "Because of the support I have received, the degree I am so proud to leave with, the football legacy I helped leave behind, and more reasons than I could even remember, I would simply like to say thank you. Every last person has made my experience at Wisconsin far beyond what I could have imagined and without you I could never be where I am today."
Konz was named first-team All-American by Pro Football Weekly. He was a Rimington Trophy finalist as a junior. Konz was also a three-time Academic All-Big Ten selection.
Konz is expected to be a late first-rounder. He is big, powerful, strong and consistent.
