Mitchell Schwartz OT California #72 Ht: 6’5″

Wt: 318

  Strengths: Prototypical size. Decent athleticism; can get down field on screens. Once he’s set, generally shows strong fundamentals. Good hand placement on his blocks; can get into a defenders chest and consistently slow him down. Has played on left and right side of line, sometimes within the same game. A physical run blocker; does a nice job getting low and driving his man backwards. Weaknesses: Footwork is slow; struggles to stay with faster edge rushers. General field awareness is very average; struggles to pick up blitzes pre-snap. Gets happy feet when he’s left alone; doesn’t stay in his zone and will create space for delayed blitzes to slide inside. When presented with decisions on an overload blitz on his side, he hesitates and will sometimes whiff on everyone. Inconsistent getting low to anchor and will get pushed back into the pocket. Suffered a back injury in 2011. Comments: What you see is what you get with Schwartz. He’s technically sound and has enough athleticism to play at the next level (although probably on the right side). However, things start to go wrong when he has to think on his feet. He can be overwhelmed by delayed blitzes and overload blitzes and seems to lack the ability to anticipate and make quick decisions. Videos: 2011 vs Stanford
