  • Welcome to the Broncos, Michael Schofield

    Don't know much about him, but he's a Bronco now, so I'm a fan.

    6'7" & 301. I tend to like his size and build. Plus, I trust #7.

      Pretty much means Franklin is gone after this year, no?

            Most people have no idea who he is and is considered a bit of a reach.

                  No, but Franklin and Clark won't both be here.

                    The plan is to move Franklin to guard, so I'm not sure this has much impact on his long term prospects.

                      He's pretty good. Good balance, good hands, good awareness. He can get beat on swim moves and suffers from Beadles-syndrome where when he gets to the next level he has trouble diagnosing who to block or what to do. He has issues with outside speed sometimes and he doesn't get upfield very quickly. But he always keeps his assignment in front of him and his hands are like vice-grips. Once he latches on, you can see defenders become irritated in the game because he won't let go.

                        Schofield

                        Michael Schofield, offensive tackle

                        At Michigan
                        A three-year starter at two different positions, Schofield got his break with the Wolverines as a sophomore in 2011 by playing a new spot up front at offensive guard. He started the final 10 games of the year at guard, helping Michigan earn a Sugar Bowl victory in the process.

                        Following the graduation of Mark Huyge, Schofield moved out to right tackle opposite former teammate Taylor Lewan. Playing in the shadow of Lewan for most of his college career, Schofield quietly turned himself into one of the Big Ten's more polished and consistent tackles. He made 36 starts (26 at right tackle) and appeared in 52 total games as a four-year letter winner.

                        What they're saying:
                        ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr.: "Schofield was a little underrated. He was solid pretty much all year at tackle, he could be a third- or fourth-round pick. ... (He) can be a starting right tackle in this league."

                        NFL Network's Mike Mayock: "A late add (to the Senior Bowl) -- but I thought he stoned everybody in the (one-on-one drills). He's a right tackle only in my opinion. They tried him at guard. Right tackle only is not a good thing to be in the NFL unless you're a starter. (But) I think he has the potential to be a starting right tackle. He's got to get stronger."

                        Where he could be drafted:
                        Schofield is hoping to hear his name called at some point during the second day of the draft, either in the late stages of round two or somewhere in the third round. If he's still around by Saturday, most experts believe he won't last beyond the fourth round of the draft.

                        Beat writer analysis:
                        Schofield did a little bit of everything for Michigan during his time in Ann Arbor, and never really got a ton of credit for it. He played guard when he had to. He started at right tackle, and subbed at left tackle this past season when Lewan left the Penn State game with an undisclosed injury. At the NFL combine, Schofield (6-foot-7, 304) ran a 5.01 40-yard dash -- which was actually faster than former Texas A&M star Jake Matthews. For Schofield, a lot depends on the team that takes him. If he's put in the right situation and given a chance to grow, he could have a very productive career for a long time.

                          He's played right tackle but also left guard, so offers some versatility.

                            SOunds like he could sit for a year and be ready in Year 2.

                              Explain "bit of a reach".
