After missing the Wisconsin pro day, Badgers center Peter Konz finally worked out at the university in front of scouts from 11 teams and coaches from the Cincinnati Bengals and the Baltimore Ravens. All Konz did was weigh in at 313 pounds and then did 23 bench presses. He’s very athletic, but had a broken ankle and missed the final three games of the regular season. However, he returned to play a bowl game and will probably go in the 25-35 area. Two other prospects G Kevin Zeitler and OL Josh Oglesby showed up as well but both only weighed in at 315 and 336, respectively.

One of the benefits of pro day is that it allows an unheralded prospect to get on the map with an outstanding workout. That is precisely what took place at Wisconsin’s pro day on Thursday.
