KC Chiefs Keep An Eye On A Michigan Offensive Lineman At 2011 Senior Bowl

And the 2011 Senior Bowl practice week is in full force, with NFL teams talking to as many college football prospects as they can get their hands on. We've already told you about three other prospects reports have connected the Chiefs to while at the Senior Bowl - Oklahoma S Quinton Carter, Boston College OT Anthony Castonzo and Iowa DT Christian Ballard - and we've got another offensive linemen to add to the list - Michigan G Stephen Schilling.

Doug Farrar of Yahoo! Sports checked out Schilling at this morning's Senior Bowl practice:

I also liked what I saw from Michigan guard Stephen Schilling -- the guy definitely plays with a nasty streak and shows the technique you'd expect from a school with so much great offensive-line history. Representatives from the Washington Redskins, Baltimore Ravens and Kansas City Chiefs made sure to talk to Schilling after practice.

Schilling is projected as a third round pick, which we know will most certainly fluctuate as the 2011 NFL draft season rolls on.

Checking out guards make sense for the Chiefs. Brian Waters has been in the NFL for over 10 years. Ryan Lilja is entering his 8th season and Darryl Harris is only a rookie. 2010 third round pick G/C Jon Asamoah didn't play much last season. You could argue the Chiefs are deceptively thin at the guard position. 

I have to confess I haven't been studying Big 10 offensive linemen as much as I should have been. Those of you who saw Schilling play, what stands out? What makes him a good player?
