national champs baby
Patrick Hruby is doing God's work.

stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
Well deserved, this makes him the best C in the nation to both ESPN and SI so far this year.
This is definitely a well-deserved honor. I hope Molk continues to improve and sets himself up nicely on draft day after winning a B1G championship. These seniors deserve more awards to hang their hats on.

Why would you down vote this? You need therapy!
No place on earth I'd rather be on a football Saturday than Michigan Stadium !
Congratulations to Molk, the man has earned it as much for his having to deal with off the field nonsense as his on the field performance. Having said that I think SI's tagline of allowing michigan to run for 239 yards per game might be slightly misattributed. Dilithium will do what it does, heh.
I dont think this has been Molk's strongest season, but he's in a new offense so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. AA teams don't really mean much to me, but it's always good for show and recruiting.
The B1G has five of nine first-team lineman, but no skill position guys or LB/DBs on either team. I feel like A.J. Jenkins, Montee Ball, and Lavonte David were at least worthy of second team looks.
How would we know if Ball is good or not? He runs behind a line that opens holes that many of us here could run through. He's good, but is he THAT good?
Yea, that's what im thinking too. If we put our backs behind those Wisc Oline prob the same productiong give or take. Plus I think Saturday's game really hurt Molk's stock IMO

Can Molk stay at C for an NFL team? Would he best fit in a zone-blocking scheme like Shannahan's?
"Relax you panic monger" -Megatron
Teams whose focus is on zone-blocking would be the only ones to give him a look IMO. He's smallish and has had past leg injuries so I don't know what his chances of succeeding in the NFL are
Molk being small has been mentioned here before, and he's really not as undersized as some think he is:
This is just the (presumable, I didn't look at depth charts, just years of exp.) starting centers for AFC teams. Feel free to check out the NFC starters if you like. Averages:
Even though it wouldn't be reasonable to expect Molk to grow another inch and a half anytime soon, I think it is certainly within reason to think he could put on another 10-15 pounds. The concern you raise about him having had past leg injuries is valid, but I see no reason why he couldn't have a successful NFL career, as a center, just based on his size.
Almost every review I've read has concerns about size and strength. Some guys in the NFL can get away with it. If he gets in the right system, I think he could be successful. He'll get drafted for sure, but we'll see if he sticks in the NFL.
How is Justin Blackmon not a WR on the 1st or 2nd team???
I think you could sub him in for Jordan White and have no problem, but all the other receivers have better #s than he does so far. Plus, Blackmon isn't nearly on the torried pace he set last year. But White is missing 12 catches for 119 yards because the Michigan game doesn't count. So he's had a pretty good season too.
It's always nice to see a Michigan guy on an All-American team, but to be honest I think he's a little overrated.
Glad to see Molk is getting recognized. Hopefully the rest of the O Line will continue to improve as they get twoards the end of the season
THIS IS MICHIGAN
Strong work Molk!
/ bobs head approvingly
And, since his overall demeanor is at least as good as his play, hats off to his parents and the other people who have influenced his character. It isn't an accident.
May you have a strong foundation
