Mitchell Schwartz, OT/OG, California

Height: 6’5?
Weight: 318
Grade: 6.9 (Grading Scale)

Film Room Notes: Senior Bowl

Hands: 10 1/8? Arms: 33 1/2?

40: 5.45/1.77 Bench: 23 Vert: 26.5? Broad: 7’5? 3-Cone: 7.86

Strengths: Good size, bulk and length – Has some positional versatility, could possibly play every position on the line – Keeps a nice, wide base – Bends well with his knees – Gets a consistent push in the run game, finishes – Consistently positions himself correctly, understands the angles in the run game – Mirrors wells, above-average change of direction skills – Can get to the 2nd level – Good motor, doesn’t seem to tire as game progresses – Four year starter, tons of experience (35 games at LT, 16 games at RT) – Very smart player, never see him out of position or making mental errors – One of the most impressive blockers at the Senior Bowl – NFL Bloodlines – Team leader and captain.

Weaknesses: Not overly physical, could add some strength to his upper and lower body – Gets a bit high in pass protection, fails to remain balanced through contact – Will struggle against speed rushers on the outside, we think he’ll be best at guard once he gets stronger – Has had some back issues in the past.
