David Molk NFL Draft Profile

David Molk NFL Draft Profile

David Molk, Senior, Center, Michigan



David Molk has been a regular on the Rimington Trophy award list throughout his career at Michigan. A four year starter at center, Molk has a ton of experience and has been the unsung hero for Michigan’s improving offense. Even as a redshirt freshman, Molk played like an upperclassman. He earned a starting job in the spring of 2008 and has never given it up.

Molk missed much of his sophomore season with an injury, but was right back to his old ways in 2010. Molk did a superb job holding together the offense. In the end the Wolverines offense totaled an amazing 6,011 yards on the season. The team ranked first in the Big Ten with 251.1 rushing yards per game and second in the conference with 249.8 passing yards per contest. Molk’s stability, strength and leadership held together an offense that put up great numbers, but was often in need of a leader.


Final Projection:

The only thing that will keep Molk off the top of the list of centers heading into the 2012 NFL Draft is his injury history. Molk is in great shape and there is not anything that could have been done about his injury rattled sophomore season, but it may be a concern for some teams. Molk injured his foot in 2009 and came back against Penn State late in the year and promptly injured his knee during the opening series of the game.
