2011 Senior Bowl Practice: Redskins Among Teams Showing Interest In Michigan G Stephen Schilling

We've talked at length about the Redskins need for a quarterback. but if they just bring in a signal caller, there will be nobody up front who can protect him. The Redskins need a new player at (arguably) four of the five offensive line positions. I wouldn't be surprised if they spent more than one pick there throughout the draft.

Early reports from the Senior Bowl practice already have the team looking at some offensive line prospects, including ones that may be available to them in later rounds. According to Doug Farrar, the Redskins have been among the teams showing interest in Michigan guard Stephen Schilling. Hogs Haven has a quick scouting report on him, and here is an excerpt they took from Farrar himself.

The guy definitely plays with a nasty streak and shows the technique you'd expect from a school with so much great offensive-line history...A projected third-rounder at this time, Schilling could benefit greatly from the pre-draft process, especially as he shows zone teams his ability to hit the second level decidedly and in a hurry.

He certainly has the size and pedigree to make a successful guard for the Redskins. But as the Haven notes, he is projected to go in the third round, a round in which the Redskins have no picks. But if he stays on the board until the Redskins next selection, he might be good value and potentially a future starter on the offensive line.
