Broncos select Michigan tackle Michael Schofield at #95

With their third-round pick, the Broncos chose Michigan tackle Michael Schofield.

The 6-6, 301-pounder started 36 games over the past three seasons, split amongst left guard (in 2011) and right tackle (2012-13).

Schofield earned praise during Senior Bowl week, when he worked at both guard and tackle.

At the time, Mike Mayock called the Illinois native a "right tackle only" in the NFL, and a potential starter at the position.

Mel Kiper offered similar thoughts about the 23-year-old redshirt senior.

With the Broncos planning to try Orlando Franklin at left guard, Schofield could end up competing with Chris Clark, Winston Justice, and Vinston Painter on the right edge.

Or, perhaps he'll get a shot at left guard, allowing Franklin to stay at right tackle.
