2010 NFL Draft: Will Kent State’s Jameson Konz Be an Oakland Raider?

Not too many people outside of Ohio knew who Jameson Konz of Kent State is; well, that was until Kent State's Pro Day where only the Cleveland Browns attended and were witness to an amazing athletic display of skill from the Golden Flash.

Now that word has spread of Konz's skill level, more and more teams are scheduling private workouts with him including the Oakland Raiders.

This is no surprise because, as you will see once his measureables are listed, Konz is really an Al Davis-type of player.

But before the measureables, here is a little history on Konz.

Konz came to Kent State as a pass rushing outside linebacker, but before his senior season, he switched to wide receiver.

As a linebacker Konz made 90 total tackles and had two sacks.

Having never played receiver before, Konz still managed to catch 21 passes for 298 yards and two touchdowns.

Not the most spectacular receiver in the nation, but the following numbers will show you why Konz may be a Raider.

Standing at 6' 3" and 234 pounds, Konz runs a 4.38 40-yard dash, and has a 46-inch vertical leap.

Konz may not be big enough to play linebacker in the NFL, he may be too heavy to play wide receiver, but he could line up in the backfield.

Whether Konz is really a running back, fullback, or still possibly a receiver, Konz is a freak of nature when it comes to the intangibles.

He is currently projected as a late round pick or perhaps even an undrafted free agent, but if Davis likes Konz enough (and he probably will), look for a Raiders reach to pick Konz a bit earlier than expected.

If not the Raiders, then another team will be very impressed and happy with the type of athletic talent Konz will bring with him.
