Molk's strength makes him a great value.
This is a Chris Berman moment..."So you're all on Peter Konz?" There are countless mock drafts that have the Ravens drafting Peter Konz with their first-round pick. Konz is listed as the best center on most draft boards, but do they really to use their first pick in the draft on a center who bench presses what a lot of defensive backs can?
Of course bench presses are not everything, but drafting Konz in the first round is questionable. There is a need for the Ravens to draft the heir-apparent to Matt Birk. But why not use the first-round pick on one of the best offensive tackles, pass-rushers or wide receivers? And wait till possibly the third round to draft Michigan's David Molk?
The self-proclaimed "best center in the draft" benched 225lbs an outstanding 41 times, the best bench press in the entire combine by six repetitions. Molk is more than just a gym rat. The Michigan product won the 2011 Rimington Trophy for the NCAA's best center (beating out rival Peter Konz).
With Birk putting off retirement for at least one more season, Molk does not have to start right away. He can learn under the veteran Birk and also provide depth for the offensive line.
