Konz sounds like the type of high caharacter player the Steelers go after. His injuries however would cause me some pause especially a young man getting blood clots.


22. *Peter Konz, C, Wisconsin, 6-5, 315, 1 Konz (pronounced "Kahnz"), showed his character even as he made the decision to opt for the draft after his junior year. He wrote a letter of explanation to Badger fans, telling them among other things that he crammed 18 units into the fall semester so he could graduate this spring and, oh yes, he was getting married. Konz was equally accountable on the field, where he always found a way to get the job done. His alertness compensates for average quickness so he still gets in position in time to take on defenders. Konz is more of a persistent, wall-off type of blocker than a physical mauler. In order to play in 30 college games, he overcame several setbacks, including blood clots in both lungs (2009), a severely sprained ankle (2010) and a dislocated left ankle that kept him out of three games before he returned to play in the 2012 Rose Bowl against Oregon.

23. Cordy Glenn, OG, Georgia, 6-6, 346, 1-2 This massive man looked like a natural when he was first thrown into a starting role as a freshman. Glenn went on to tie a school record with 50 total starts, including 28 at left guard, 18 at left tackle and four at right guard. There was even talk about trying him on the defensive line, but it didn't happen. Glenn obliterates defenders on the run and is excellent in pass protection, certainly a factor in Georgia finishing third in the SEC with an average of 413 yards a game. Glenn appears most natural at guard, but was used at left tackle last season and in Senior Bowl workouts. He struggled against speed rushers, so expect him to be inside in the NFL. He has all the strength you would expect of a man his size and then some, but it his footwork on pass blocking and ability to get downfield to pick off second level defenders that is a surprise, both to scouts and the overwhelmed defenders themselves.
I really think Glenn will be gone by pick 18 or so. I'm not sure why so many analysts peg him as a guard only. He could in the least be a decent RT in the NFL at some point. So many analysts have him going after Glenn. I don't get it. All things being equal, he seems like a better player.
I would take Glenn in Round 1 without hesitation. Way more upside than alot of the OL.
