what do you guys think of him? will he get drafted and in what rounds? hes 6'3 260 lbs; hes played through a seperated rib and has never been stopped for negative yardage

heres his story; real good article; from d-3 running back to a folk hero here at wvu

He's a prototypical H-back.

He can play #3 TE, #3 RB, #1 FB.

He's probably a 4th or 5th round guy depending on how well he shows at the combine and All-star games.

Other guys in the same boat would be..

Peyton Hillis, Arkansas
Jacob Hester, LSU

I think Schmidt will end up used exactly like Chris Cooley is in Washington. In fact that'd be a ideal fit for him being a Washington area native

a punishing blocker and a strong runner that has a burst, can find holes well. Has nice hands and in terms of receiving he has added versatility by learning to play tight end in the pre season

He is a really good blocker. That's all that really matters to me for a good FB. It sucks when you have a FB out there and on a running play he doesn't block anybody, you might as well just have 10 guys out there in that instance. But yeah, he is good at running and receiving too, probably a 4th round pick at best just b/c of how little FBs are used nowadays.

He's a great fullback with great speed. He can block good and catch great as well. He could easily be a starting fullback or even a running back in the NFL.

He will never be a starting running back in the NFL.

I never said starting.

He'll probably be a Patriot.

Wouldn't surprise me.

He'll probably be a Patriot.

The Patriots really like FB Kyle Eckel on their Practice Squad. In fact they are paying him twice the average PS player salary

He was playing the other day. I saw him get a carry. I was so happy when I heard he was going to play this year, but no the Dolphins got rid of him. :(

He seems like he could play the H-Back role pretty well, though I'd be more tempted to let him play the more traditional fullback with an extra dimension (that being recieving). I see big potential for him as a battering ram-type FB. All that being said, most teams will try and fit him into that H-Back role, which would definately work.

He's got a lot of talents. A smart coach would use him for a couple of carries a game, a couple receptions, and of course, barrelling into linebackers like an 18-wheeler.

he can punt too; had a 37 yarder downed at the 1

Owen Schmidt seems like a Washington Redskin to me. He's a local kid from Northern Virginia and he seems to be able to fill the role Mike Sellers plays very well. he could also be a backup to Chris Cooley

I'd love to see the Bears get him in perhaps the 5th round. 3rd TE, short yardage guy, etc.

Chris Cooley type guy, except more powerful and less speed

i've heard reports of him running under 4.6, thats certainly faster than cooley, and its faster than many runningbacks too, in response to the guy who said he couldn't play there.

he loves to hit too; 9 broken face masks; tough, played in gator bowl with a seperated rib, that happened 2 days earlier; nice guy, before every game, he thanks all the coaches for giving him an opportunity (was a d-3 player, walked on after schools suchs as maryland said no thanks; thanks for slaton and schmitt)

He's a great ball-player, and if someone gives him a good chance, he will be a great pro too.
