Schaefer was looked to lead a young offensive line in his senior season at Washington. He was underwhelming in leading the disappointing unit, as he was the only upper classman on the line.
- Schaefer is versatile. He has played all around the line, at both tackle spots and also kicked inside.
- Not afraid to play through the whistle. Not particularly nasty, but willing to finish his blocks
- Toughness: either doesn't get hurt or plays through injuries and doesn't complain. He took every snap for Washington in the 2011 season.
- Size: 6-5, 302. Not extremely long arms, but length can be a plus inside.
- Effective as a combination blocker, uses length to reach out and double team.
- Not elite athleticism, if pushed outside will struggle with speed rush.
- Looks lost at times at the second level, will get turned around and miss blocks.
- While he is a good combination blocker, sometimes doubles at the wrong time and leaves free rushers on delayed LB blitzes.
- Not asked to get up the field on screens very often due to lack of athleticism/struggles on second level. Likely struggles on screen plays.
Schaefer was looked at as a late-round prospect entering his senior season before he struggled and fell off of a lot of draft boards. He may be an UDFA prospect for a team looking to develop a versatile OL with the potential to play all five positions along the line. Lack of elite athleticism will prevent him from being a true bookend tackle but has the ability to play outside for stretches.
