What Schofield Brings to Broncos

Posted May 9, 2014

Independent Analyst Andrew Mason writes about what the Broncos' third-round pick brings to the team.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. --Most of Michael Schofield's work at Michigan came at right tackle, but he also started 10 games at left guard. That versatility may have been his best asset as teams evaluated his stock.

"One of the things I’ve tried to prove throughout this whole process is that I can play both," Schofield said. "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 offers the Broncos positional flexibility, which is crucial to their long-term planning. Orlando Franklin is moving from right tackle to left guard, but his contract expires after this season. Projected right tackle Chris Clark and center Manny Ramirez have contracts that expire after the 2015 season. Schofield's progress could help determine what course John Elway and the Broncos take in constructing their offensive line for the next few years.

"It just gives us a lot of different options," the executive vice president and general manager said. "With his versatility, he'll start at tackle and move inside and play some guard, also. So we're going to be playing with a bunch of different combinations, and by the end, I'm sure we'll come out with the best combination.

"Nothing's in concrete. But Mike is just a guy that brings competition, he's athletic and has done it."

Schofield acknowledged in a conference call after his selection that he was more comfortable at tackle. But during practices prior to the Senior Bowl, he worked mostly at guard, and looked comfortable.

The size at which Schofield settles could help determine his future. Schofield said he currently weighs "closer to 305" pounds, up from 301 at the Combine.

"We think that he has the ability to get bigger and stronger," Elway said. "He's a guy that has tremendous versatility. He played guard as well as tackle, and he brings big competition to the offensive line."
