2012 NFL Draft Results: Michigan's David Molk Goes To Chargers In Seventh Round

The Michigan Wolverines have seen just two of their players drafted as we near the end of the seventh round of the 2012 NFL Draft. The most recent draftee, David Molk, went at pick No. 226 to the San Diego Chargers, with the No. 19 pick in the seventh round. Molk was projected to go much higher than this by most draft experts, and was considered one of the better center prospects coming out. It appears that some of the biggest knocks on him as a player may have been more significant than previously thought.

Most notably, Molk is regarded as someone who is a bit small and plays a bit small on top of that. At any rate, he's heading to the Chargers where he'll get his chance, and will be able to play alongside Stephen Schilling, a former guard at Michigan who was drafted by San Diego in round six in 2011.

Molk joins Mike Martin as the only two Michigan players drafted thus far, with notable names like Junior Hemingway and Kevin Koger still on the board. He's also the second interior lineman drafted by San Diego thus far, as the Chargers added Johnnie Troutman out of Penn State in round five.
