2012 NFL Mock Draft: Chicago Could Target Wisconsin OL Peter Konz

In his latest 2012 NFL mock draft, Fox Sports' Peter Schrager has the Chicago Bears bolstering their offensive line in the first round:

19. Chicago Bears: Peter Konz, C, Wisconsin: The Bears drafted one Badgers offensive lineman in Gabe Carimi last year and would be wise to take another in Konz. He's a mauler who can play either guard or center at the next level.

Konz helped establish a dominant ground game at Wisconsin; the Badgers ran for nearly 3,300 yards in 2011 and averaged 5.4 yards per carry.

Chicago could also use some help at wide receiver, and there seems to be a fairly even split among the experts about the direction in which the Bears will go with their first pick.
