Senior Bowl Notes

  • Schofield accepted an invitation to play in the 2014 Senior Bowl in Mobile.
  • On Tuesday, the former Wolverine truly struggled in 1-on-1 drills with his core strength but in scrimmage/11 on 11 he played much better in the run game in tandem with the rest of his line.  Schofield showed better in team situations than he will when exposed and naked in 1-on-1 drills.
  • On Wednesday, Schofield was substantially better today than on Tuesday, showing much more functional strength and tenacity against most everyone he faced in one on one drills including Minnesota's Ra'Shede Hageman.  The former Minnesota star got pancaked by Schofield in one on ones.

Report

Schofield started at right tackle for the entire 2012 and 2013 seasons and started at left guard for 10 games in 2011.  His ability to play guard or right tackle should be beneficial to him on the next level.
 
As a pass protector, you can see that Schofield, like his teammate Taylor Lewan, is well-schooled and proficient in that area of his game.  Schofield has doeesn't lose leverage as much as you would expect for a taller player and he has enough core strength to play inside.
 
Schofield is a very average athlete and this will be a factor for him in the NFL.  I don't see the traits needed to consistently protect the edge as a tackle and he best suited to play in a gap scheme where he isn't asked to make as many blocks in space.
