I'm not even going to talk about this guys numbers, they're ridiculous, enough said. Look for yourself.
I think every team in the NFL wants this guy on their team, but at what position, and where should he be drafted???????????
He seems to be able to do everything else, so maybe the Dolphins could teach him to LS.
What do you think a guy like this could do for the Dolphins??????
Where in the draft is he obtainable for value???

NFL Draft Scout has him projected in the 7th. I have not seen him play, but from what I read he could be the next Jim Jensen if utilized in that way. Seems to be well suited for the WC. Positions that he has a projection at are HB, WR, TE, OLB, and even DE. I mentioned him way back in January:
34. HB/TE/WR James Konz 6'3"228lbs.
Not alot of info on this guy. Played 3yrs. as a LB. Had an ankle injury his Junior year that prompted a medical redshirt. When he came back was moved to HB/TE to create match up problems for defenses. He has that LB mentality so you know he is going to battle for the ball anytime he goes up for the catch. But the most interesting thing is the fact that he runs a 4.38/40. I think he would be a perfect fit for the unconventional offense we run. He would be a legitimate threat in passing situation out of the wildcat. This guy is worth a look in the later rds. or as an UDFA.
*maybe CK or someone who has access to film can chime on this player?

Konz Highlights Kent State Pro Day — Kent State held its annual football Pro Day this morning and those on hand — including the Cleveland Browns — were treated to a show by Uniontown, Ohio native Jameson Konz (http://www.kentstatesports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?SPSID=47584&SPID=4445&DB_OEM_ID=11400&ATCLID=1146616).
Projected as a tight end/wide receiver in the NFL, the fifth-year senior turned in a 46-inch vertical leap and a 4.38 40-yard dash among his other measurements. Konz’ vertical leap was two inches better than what any player turned in at the recent NFL combine, while his 40 time would have ranked second among all tight ends and wide receivers.
The 6-3, 234-pound Konz had 21 catches for 298 yards and a pair of touchdowns last season for the Golden Flashes.

03/26/2010 - It's always a risk for a player to pass on working out at the scouting combine and wait for his pro day to show his stuff. Things get busy around the league, teams are spread thin as they try to crisscross the country to see as much as they can. So, sometimes attendance can be a little sparse at some of the campus gatherings for the draft hopefuls. And sometimes there is something like the case of Jameson Konz. A couple of weeks ago, Konz (pronounced Cons), a tight end/H-back/wide receiver rattled the usual "we've got it covered" disposition of the league when he blew up a pro day workout held in front of a grand total of one team - the Cleveland Browns. Since then, people have certainly tried to gather all the information they can on Konz - several teams have checked in with him since his double-take workout - because after a position change, an injury and limited production, there are questions to answer. Konz had just 21 catches in the 2009 season to go with two touchdowns. He missed every game but the season opener in 2008, when he suffered an ankle injury after making two catches against Boston College. During that 2008 season, people around the program often said publicly that Konz was expected to return to the field that year, but he did not - even as scouts from teams such as the Giants and 49ers showed up at his games from time to time. It also was his first year on offense in college football. He was a starter at outside linebacker in 2006, finishing with 34 tackles, as well as playing as a linebacker as a true freshman in 2005. - Jeff Legwold, The Denver Post http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1123488

If you have not noticed, I really like this guy. This is the Kroy Biermann of this years draft. And this kid might not even be drafted.

Konz had a workout with the N.O. Saints earlier this week where he did 27 reps of 225 on the bench press. I don't think there's any way he falls to the 6th or 7th round given the amount of interest teams are showing in him. NFL teams have been scouting this guy for the last 2 years at Kent State, so many teams already knew about him before his pro day workout in March.
He only played on offense 1 year in college and Kent State had a true freshman at QB so his numbers weren't that great, but players with this guy's combination of size, speed, and athleticism don't come along that often. Looks like he'll be playing either h-back or WR in the NFL, along with special teams.

Found this on a recent search of Youtube where Konz cleared 42" on the vertical jump, and then they had to re-set it. He got 46" on his next jump. At .19 -.23 of the video you get a pretty good look at his physique.
