Scouting Report:

Strengths:

  • Run Blocking: Schofield's strength is at run blocking. He drives his legs on contact and generates some power through his lower body.
  • Versatility: Schofield has experience at Right Tackle and Left Guard. Those ironically are the positions the Broncos could use a starter(Depending on what they do with Orlando Franklin).
  • Tough: Schofield is a tough and gritty player who is also a hard worker.
  • Measurables: Has good height and long arms, and a well built frame. Has a wide base to dig hits cleats in the ground and wall off lanes.
  • Good Technique: He uses his hands well, doesn't give up many penalties, and has a low center of gravity.

Weaknesses:

  • Average Athleticism: Only ran 5.01 at the combine. Works best in small areas.
  • Average Strength: Not a great drive blocker. Needs to get stronger.
  • Struggles With Speed: Has had issues with speed rushers. Schofield cannot cut off the wide rush and struggles to handle quick, inside counters.
  • Struggles in the Second Level: Schofield has tight hips and limited range. Is exposed when pulling, and is often late to his spot.
  • Foot Quickness: Schofield only has average foot quickness as well.
