With the 95th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos have selected Michigan offensive tackle Michael Schofield.
The Broncos went into Friday night with a couple of remaining needs, including the tackle/guard position. Schofield was a bookend tackle at Michigan with Titans first round pick Taylor Lewan, and some before the season said that this was a guy who could emerge as one of the better offensive linemen in the Big Ten.
At 6’7″ 301 pounds with ideal arm length, this is a player who will provide depth and potentially a starting option at the right tackle position in the near future. The Broncos might also have drafted him to groom him as a guard with Orlando Franklin’s contract expiring in 2015.
John Elway seems to be on board with this pick:
Added Michael Schofield in 3rd Rd from Michigan. A versatile tackle who can also play guard. Tremendous upside and brings competition to OL.
