BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter who began his college career at defensive tackle. Senior-year totals included 29/3.5/2 after a career-high 45 tackles as a junior.
POSITIVES: Nice-sized, hard-working defender with limited speed. Plays with good pad level, gets off the snap with terrific first-step quickness, and works his hands throughout the action. Quickly changes direction, chases hard to get involved, and immediately locates the ball. Disciplined and stays with assignments.
NEGATIVES: Undersized and engulfed at the point. Struggled with a foot injury the past two seasons.
ANALYSIS: Schlekeway is a competitive prospect who plays with great intensity. He lacks speed and strength, yet he could catch on as an inexpensive backup.
