With the 29th pick in the 2012 MHR Community Mock Draft, the Baltimore Ravens select...

Peter Konz, Center, Wisconsin

Ravens' GM: Eddie.Teach

GM Explanation: This pick fits perfectly for the Batimore Ravens by getting the BPA and at a position of need. Even though current center Matt Birk was re-signed to a three year deal it will be his 15th season in the league and the Ravens have made it clear that they are looking for a young upgrade at the position. Peter Konz comes from a dominating offensive line at Wisconsin where as the captain of the O-line helped RB Montee Ball tie Barry Sanders mark of 39 touchdowns in a single season. He is a force in the running game, bull dozing his way to the next level and has the strength to withstand bull rushes from the best. He is a smart player with good technique and he will benefit greatly from watching a veteran like Birk as he learns the NFL game.

Commissioner's analysis: I think this pick would be very solid for the Ravens. Obviously with Matt Birk's new contract, Konz wouldn't be the starting center right away but he could definitely start at the right guard position for the Ravens. He, along with a bunch of his buddies from Wisconsin, is a well coached kid who is absolutely huge and a mauler in the run game. He's also a very smart player who is already really experienced making calls at the line of scrimmage, and learning from Matt Birk could be huge for him. Solid pick by the Ravens.
