Biography: Two-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior after posting 62/24.5/2 when he ranked second in the NCAA in tackles for loss. Junior numbers included 40/8.5/45. Tore a knee ligament during Senior Bowl practices.

Positives: Explosive college defensive end who plays with a great degree of athleticism. Possesses tremendous first step quickness, keeps his pads low to the ground, and gets leverage on opponents. Quick and fluid changing direction with the ability to immediately alter his angle of attack and pursues the action with speed from all directions. Effectively makes plays in space when drop off the line of scrimmage. Relentless and plays with a nonstop motor. Effectively uses his hands to protect himself. Wraps up tackling.

Negatives: Easily engulfed or pushed from his angle of attack by a single blocker. Inefficient and at times takes incorrect angles to the play.

Analysis: Schofield was a player on the rise and a prospect who had improved his game the past two seasons before sustaining his knee injury. His game is predicated on speed, and after returning from the injury, he must prove he has lost none of his explosive nature.

Projection: 7th
