Peppers at 10, which seems low.
Didn't see this up here, and the title says it all, but a couple enjoyable tidbits from the ESPN/Ann Arbor News post:
In an interview with AnnArbor.com, the Rimington Trophy winner says it's "pretty stupid" to think any other center should be drafted ahead of him, including Wisconsin's Peter Konz and Ohio State's Mike Brewster.
Molk also doesn't believe that Ohio State's Brewster, a four-year starter and 2010 All-American, should be drafted higher than him. "He is nowhere near me as a player," he said of Brewster.

Happy Leap Day to MGoBlog!
Just wanted to make a quick announcement regarding MGoProfile, which I previously said would run monthly during the offseason. Well, yeah, about that...
In truth, it was Alex Kozan's fault. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.
Actually, both the honoree and myself have had a lot going on lately and agreed to just push it back a week or so rather than throw together something less successful. In short it just means we'll probably have a delayed profile for the beginning of March and another at the end of the month.
Now back to your regularly scheduled programming of bball, hockey and the most insanely proactive recruiting effort since 2011.
He didn't originate the whiteout (Winnipeg did) but he was the one who made it so effective in Happy Valley.
He was also responsible for Zombie Nation and all the other RAWK music (minor league baseball) stuff Penn State plays.
Most of the fans on their 247 board are happy about this. A lot of them sound like blue-hair "get off my lawn" people, but they feel like their atmosphere has gotten way out of control. They make similar comments to ours about wanting the majority of music to come from the marching band.
How do you personally feel about so much music at Michigan Stadium the past three years?
Now that the amazing 2012 class is officially complete, I'm curious which 2012 recruiting class position group is everyone's favorite. I'm lumping the TEs in with the WRs to give them a chance. Here are my thoughts.
OL: Magnuson, Kalis, Bars, Braden
Helps 1st tr: Kalis or Braden, not both
Potential/likely all Big Ten: All of them
Potential star: Kalis, Magnuson
WR/TE: Darboh, Chesson, Funchess, Williams
Help 1st year: Darboh, Funchess, Williams
Potential/likely All Big Ten: Darboh, Funchess, Williams
Potential star: Darboh, Funchess (mismatch against LBs/safeties will be fun to watch)
DL: Pipkins, Wormley, Henry, Godin, Ojemudia, Strobel
Help 1st year: Pipkins, Wormley
Potential/likely All Big Ten: Pipkins, Strobel, Wormley, Ojemudia
Potential star: Pipkins, Ojemudia
LB: Ross, Bolden, Jenkins-Stone, Ringer
Help 1st year: Bolden, Ross
Potential/likely All Big Ten: Ross, Bolden, Jenkins-Stone
Potential star: Ross, Bolden, Jenkins-Stone
DB: Richardson, Wilson, Clark, Gant
Help 1st year: Richardson, Wilson
Potential/likely All Big Ten: Richardson, Wilson (also like Clark)
Potential star: Richardson, Wilson
I've left off the RBs since they don't measure up to the rest of the positions, but it will be fun to see what Borges does with Norfleet.
I think one could make a case for DL, LB and OL given both the talent, depth and need. It's hard to go against the three likely stars at LB, but I'm going with the DL. Pipkins elite talent at such a position of need along with such high end depth with 6 recruits and 4-5 players with All Big Ten or better potential puts the DL at the top. I also think Ojemudia will be awesome after a couple years.
