Wisconsin's Peter Konz says David Molk's criticism doesn't bother him, 'cause I'm sexy and I know it'
Former Michigan football captain David Molk recently said he thinks he is the NFL draft's top center — and that included Wisconsin's Peter Konz, who is the consensus top prospect at the position.
Konz brushed off the remarks artfully in an interview with WISC-TV in Madison, Wis.
"That's OK — Taylor Swift said, 'People throw rocks at things that shine,'" Konz told the station Wednesday. "As far as I know, everybody likes me ... 'cause I'm sexy and I know it."
But he told AnnArbor.com it's "uninformed" to rank Konz ahead of him, citing his own four-year body of work and Konz's struggles in the bench press at the combine.
"No doubt about it," he added. "I have skills he doesn’t have. Obviously, my strength is far better, I’m faster, I would say I’m smarter. Obviously, he’s an intelligent person, I’ve talked to him, but I just think I have a technique that’s unmatched (by him)."
Molk also said he believes he is a better player than Ohio State center Mike Brewster, who responded by tweeting that Molk should "keep my name out of your mouth."
Brewster, like Konz, later said he's moving on.
"It's that time of year when guys say what they want to say, and that's fine," Brewster told The Detroit News. "I'm not going to retaliate in the media. It is what it is. He said what he said, and I wish him the best. I'm just worried about myself and my pro day and see where I go in the draft."
