Notes:

Last name is pronounced “kahnz.” An offensive and defensive lineman as a Wisconsin prep, earned all-state honors at both positions as a senior. Also lettered twice in both basketball and track and field. Redshirted in 2008. Saw action in 10 games in ’09, starting nine contests in a row before blood clots were discovered in his lungs and he missed the last two games. Was still on blood-thinning medication during ’10 spring practice and he was not allowed to participate. Started 11 games at center in the fall, missing two full games and parts of two other contests with a sprained ankle. In ’11, he started the first 10 games of the season at center before dislocating his left ankle against Minnesota. Missed the last three regular-season games before starting the Rose Bowl against Oregon. Medically excluded from the Combine with left ankle injury.

Positives:

Excellent size and good arm length. Runs his feet on contact and can wheel his hips in the hole and seal running lanes. Anticipates angles and is alert to stunts and games. Is quick up to the second level and moves efficiently for his size. Active hands. Can match size on size and anchor in pass protection — does not give much ground. Is well-versed in a pro-style offense. Smart and competitive, experienced three-year starter. 

Negatives:

Average foot athlete and lateral agility. Does not use his hands with authority or strike with violence. Does not arrive on the second level with intent nor does he consistently create good linebacker fits. Average downfield speed and coordination in space. Can be inverted when he loses leverage battles. Bench-pressed 225 pounds only 18 times at the Combine, raising questions about his weight-room work habits. Durability requires evaluation.  

Summary:

An excellent-sized, big-bodied pivot, Konz plays a finesse game and could stand to improve his strength levels and learn how to better use his hands. However, he possesses the sheer mass to match up against power and could contribute readily in the pros.
