Schofield Adds Experience, Versatility to O-Line

Posted May 9, 2014

Michigan tackle Michael Schofield spoke about his Big Ten experience and positional versatility after being the Broncos' third-round draft pick Friday.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- One day after watching his counterpart at Michigan, Taylor Lewan, get drafted 11th overall by the Tennessee Titans, tackle Michael Schofield got the call from the Broncos late in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

Schofield played in 52 games (36 starts) in four college seasons and, like Denver's first two draft picks, credited the competition of the Big Ten with preparing him for the NFL.

"You play against the best pretty much week in and week out," Schofield said on a conference call with Denver media Friday night. "You’ve got to be prepared. You’ve got to take every game like it’s a championship game because in the Big Ten, you have to if you want to compete."

Beyond his wealth of experience, Schofield also has the versatility to play multiple positions on the offensive line. After spending the 2011 season at left guard for the Wolverines, Schofield moved to right tackle for his final two seasons, starting every game at that spot. He spent the draft process trying to show teams he can still be an effective guard, working primarily at that spot during the Senior Bowl.

"I would say I’m more comfortable as a tackle but I’ve definitely become more comfortable as a guard, so I’m open to whatever position the Broncos want me to play," Schofield said. "I like to think of myself as an all-around player."

Schofield isn't yet sure where he'll be used in Denver's scheme, but he sure is excited to be headed to a winning team.

"That’s the best possible situation -- that’s a dream coming into the NFL: A team right in Super Bowl contention you know, especially a great organization like the Broncos and a quarterback like Peyton Manning."
