2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Stephen Schilling, OG, Michigan

In the Big Ten there are quite a few interior linemen prospects, but University of Michigan, Stephen Schilling is among the best. He's a four year starter after redshirting his first year. Schilling has experience at right tackle and now plays left guard for the Wolverines. He was a freshman All-American in 2007 and has started all but one game in his four years.

Schilling is better in pass protection rather than being a prototypical big, bruising guard who excels at run blocking. This may actually work in his favor as there are many teams who pass more than they run the ball in the NFL these days. Schilling possesses above-average footwork and an ability to engage his man with his hands.

There is still plenty of room on his frame to bulk up for the NFL. He has ideal height and with an added year of development (which would allow him to strengthen his upper body), Schilling can be a versatile lineman who can play multiple positions on the line depending upon the team.

He needs to continue to bulk up, add weight and develop his run-blocking techniques. Schilling often plays with poor leverage when run-blocking since he often plays a bit too upright.

Stephen Schilling projects as a late third to fourth round prospect in the 2011 NFL Draft.
