David Molk


With the 226th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the San Diego Chargers have selected David Molk, OC Michigan.

SCOUTING REPORT

From NFL.com:

Molk won the 2011 Rimington Trophy as the nation's top center after starting four years at Michigan. He has good speed for his position and is a strong player. He is slightly underweight, but it hasn't affected his play much up to this point. He can be late to pick up blitzes at times and struggles in his technique, but he has solid value and should be selected near the fifth round.

Analysis

Strengths
Molk is quick off the line of scrimmage and gains an advantage on his man immediately. He is also quick to get out when pulling and can gather speed rather quickly to bury any linebacker in his sight. He displays good footwork in nearly all of his movements and has a good pass set.

Weaknesses
Molk can have trouble sustaining his blocks through the end of run plays. He often has to pull his man down with him to keep him out of the play and finds it difficult to generate enough push early to create a solid hole for his backs. He is reliable to not allow sacks in pass production but can get off balance when setting against bull rushes.

he just doesn't like to pick offensive lineman higher does he? i would think to place a higher value on protecting the $94 million dollar man.
