Rookie Peter Konz Seeing Time At Center, Guard

The Falcons are seeing plenty of competition and versaility among the offensive line in camp. Another player splitting time between multiple positions is rookie Peter Konz, who played center at Wisconsin, but is also playing guard in Falcons training camp.

From the Falcons official team site:

"I do both right now," Konz said on Tuesday. "I couldn't begin to tell you or know myself. The coaches want to put me in those two positions and whichever one works out the best, maybe I'll help the team out."

Falcons coach Mike Smith wants linemen that can play all over the line, and Konz fits that mold. He has taken most of his snaps at second-string right guard, but said he's not yet ready and still has plenty to learn.
