In an effort to calm myself down, I started nosing around for right tackle and guard prospects that we could reasonably pick up. I kept coming across Michael Schofield.
Scout describes him as a "super sleeper."
Kiper likes him, and Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald has linked the Dolphins to him.
In Finheaven's VIP section, there was a nice profile by Silverfin, projecting him in the 3rd round:
As recently as May 2nd, Schofield's name appeared in an Ourlads mock, for the Dolphins, projecting him in the second round. That's probably high, but it shows you that NFL teams value him.Prospect: Michael Schofield, OT, Michigan
H/W: 6’6 ½“/301
Notable Combine Numbers: Arm Length - 34 inches; 10-yard split - 1.71 (40 - 5.01); Bench Press - N/A
* Underrated athleticism
* Quick feet
* Day one starting right tackle
* Good length
* Has the frame to bulk up
* Good power as a run blocker; open holes
* Holds up well in pass protection
* Occasionally can get beaten by speed
Ok, I am fine, now. Ready to draft a tackle AFTER the first round, now, just like Hickey is likely going to do.
