Denver Broncos Select C Blake Schlueter, TCU

New, comments

This is a smart move, even we don't see immediate dividends.

He is a bargain basement fill in at center, with the agility and quicks to make you feel confident in his upside. His scouting report from NFLDraftcountdown:

Strengths:
Good athlete...Quick and agile...Terrific balance...Excellent mobility and range...Smart with nice awareness...Tough, aggressive and plays with a nasty demeanor...Great motor...Nice work ethic...Experienced.

Weaknesses:
Severe lack of bulk...Average strength and not real powerful...Isn't stout at the point of attack...Gets rag-dolled at times...Doesn't get a great push...Not a good fit for every team...Durability may be an issue.

Notes:
Was a three-year starter for the Horned Frogs...Named 2nd Team All-Mountain West as a senior...Was selected a team captain in 2007 and 2008...Had surgery to repair a torn labrum in 2006...Undersized but athletic pivot who could excel in a zone blocking scheme...Wowed scouts at his Pro Day workout and might have gotten himself drafted.
