Seven things to know about Michigan tackle Michael Schofield, Denver Broncos third round draft pick

Justin Edmonds

Seven interesting, semi-random facts about Denver Broncos third round draft pick Michael Schofield, offensive tackle out of Michigan.

Why seven? You know why...

1. Michael Schofield was a four-star recruit out of high school in Illinois.

2. The first of four seniors the Broncos drafted, Schofield played in 52 games at Michigan, with 26 starts at tackle and 10 starts at guard.

3. NFL scouts take notice of someone with 36 starts with the Wolverines, which used to be nicknamed "Offensive Lineman U". Schofield's tackle teammate at Michigan, Taylor Lewan, went 11th overall to the Tennessee Titans.

4. Schofield seriously improved his stock during the Senior Bowl. "I thought he stoned everybody in the [1-on-1] drill," NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock said.

5. Schofield is big but has room to grow - he's 6'6" and 301 lbs., and he told reporters at rookie minicamp Saturday that he plans to put on 10-15 lbs. over these next few months.

6. Schofield is willing to flip to guard should the Broncos ask. "I see myself more of an offensive tackle just because that is what I've played most of my career throughout high school and throughout college," Schofield said. "One thing I was trying to prove through this whole draft process was that I can play multiple positions. Wherever the Broncos will need me, I can play for them."

7. Michigan's Michael Schofield is not related to Prison Break's Michael Schofield. Plus, that dude is fictional, and our sources confirm, the Broncos player is real.
