PETER KONZ RUMORS & GOSSIP

Don’t call Peter Konz a bust…yet

It’s been a rough couple of years for Peter Konz. Since being drafted in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft — a pick the Falcons were lauded for — Konz has had his ups and downs.

Atlanta Falcons 2012 Draft Grades

55.

Unbelievable.91. OT Lamar Holmes CI had Holmes in the 5th round so this is a bit early for him. I don’t know if he address their left tackle needs. He’s more of...
