2012 NFL Draft: Peter Konz Being Able To Play Guard And Center Is Key For Falcons

The newest member of the Atlanta Falcons is Peter Konz out of Wisconsin who was taken at No. 55 overall and he is going to be a key player for the Falcons on the offensive line.

Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff let it be known that Konz was selected because he is a versatile offensive lineman that can play multiple positions:

"I can't emphasize enough how important it is Konz can play both guard & center. We have him listed as a Guard-Center."

Dimitroff also talked about how Konz can help out in short-yardage and goal line running plays:

"We need to make sure we have the right people protecting 'deuce,' as well as helping in short yardage runs."
