The Green Bay Packers reportedly had a representative in attendance at Wisconsin’s second pro day on Wednesday, held primarily because offensive lineman Peter Konz had been recovering from an ankle injury sustained during the 2011 season.
“With approximately 12-15 NFL teams in attendance, including the Packers, Konz joined teammates Kevin Zeitler and Josh Oglesby in a brisk, hour-long workout,” writes Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “Coaches from the New York Giants, Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens administered the drills. Most eyes were probably on Konz, arguably the top center in this year’s draft class. Konz missed three games with a dislocated ankle last year before gritting through the Rose Bowl against Oregon.”
Konz put up 23 reps on the 225-pound bench press, an improvement over his 18 from the NFL Combine in February.
He did not run the 40-yard dash and is quoted as saying he was about “90%” healthy.
General manager Ted Thompson attended Wisconsin’s first pro day back in early March.
