Skinny: More and more mock drafts have Konz going to the Ravens at No. 29, and for good reason. The former Badger is a solid and smart center who could start immediately. With Matt Birk possibly retiring and Andre Gurode facing free agency, the only center on the Ravens' roster is Justin Boren, who spent much of this past season on the practice squad. Konz, whose leadership and football intelligence has been widely praised, also could play guard. Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said earlier this month that the team will add another center, and Konz would be a safe -- albeit not sexy -- pick.
