    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

    Yeah, I play WoW too.[/CENTER]

      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.

                  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. :(

                        That is correct comahan

                          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
