Atlanta Falcons' highest-drafted offensive tackle, guard, and center

OT: 2nd overall - George Kunz, Notre Dame (1969)

OG: 2nd overall - Bill Fralic, Pitt (1985)

C: 55th overall (Rd. 2) - Peter Konz, Wisconsin (2012)

The Falcons have drafted a tackle and a guard with the second-overall pick. Taking a tackle that high isn't surprising but taking a guard is.

Both George Kunz and Bill Fralic were fantastic players. They each made numerous Pro Bowls with the Falcons and both made All-Pro teams—although Kunz's was when he was with Baltimore.

Peter Konz wasn't so lucky as he only started 28 games over three seasons with the Falcons.
