David Molk, C, Michigan

David Molk did well to add some weight before entering the combine. He is an undersized center and the winner of the 2011 Rimington Trophy, an award that goes to the year's best center. It's more of a career award after he was a four-year starter for the Michigan Wolverines.

Molk is a stocky, compact player who will have to work to earn his keep in the NFL. He doesn't pick up the inside blitz very well. He's strong, but doesn't have any length. Bigger defensive tackles will be able to control him in the run game and he'll have to learn to stay low and win the battle of first contact.

He is a natural pull guard and for teams that stay in a lot of three receiver sets, Molk is someone worth considering. He's not the type of player who can go in and maul guys in-line. He's a little tight in his hips and plays upright. He moves okay laterally but he doesn't have a sudden burst in his movements. Molk will not be able to handle 3-4 nose tackles and will definitely need help on most every play.

Molk isn't versatile and may not be a great fit in most offenses.
