Green Bay Packers draft prospect profile: David Molk
- David Molk, C Michigan
- 6-foot-1, 298lbs
- The Illinois native was ranked as the No. 3 center in the nation out of HS by Scout .com
- 41 bench press reps
News & Notes:
Molk was named First Team All American and took home the 2011 Rimington Trophy Winner as the nation’s best center. Surprised many by weighing in at 298lbs at the combine (10-15 lbs. over his playing weight at Michigan). Did not participate in field drills at the combine due to a foot injury. Molk is a workout warrior, as his 41 combine bench press reps and massive 22inch neck will attest.
What they’re saying about him:
Wes Bunting (National Football Post): Shorter, compact lineman who looks nearly maxed out physically, despite weighing 288-pounds. Looks a little tight hipped trying to sit into his stance, but has a quick first step, and snaps and steps very quickly. Creates leverage for himself consistently, extends his arms and can easily reach and seal on plays off his frame… A perfect fit for the Michigan’s run first spread offense where he consistently plays to his strengths. However, he’s an overachiever who looks like a potential starter in only a zone scheme in my view.
