    Offensive lineman Peter Konz, the Falcons’ top draft pick, has picked up the offense and should be ready to compete for a starting spot in training camp. Konz, who was selected in the second round of the draft (55th overall) out of Wisconsin, continued to work out at right guard and at center during Tuesday’s minicamp practices. “Yeah, there is no doubt,†assistant offensive line coach Paul Dunn said when asked if Konz can compete for a starting spot. “We are just trying to find the five best [linemen].†Konz has been a quick study in the film room. “Peter has a lot of promise,†Dunn said. “We are encouraged by the way that he’s picked up the system quickly. Coming from Wisconsin, that’s a pretty good tradition-laden offensive line school. They come out of there, and they are pretty well-coached. Peter is no different.â€
