Draft Exclusive: Sack Champion

A source on Monday night told Packer Report that Colorado School of Mines' Marc Schiechl will visit next week. Schiechl is Division II's all-time leader in sacks with 46.

The Green Bay Packers are bringing in Division II's all-time leader in sacks for a pre-draft visit.

Colorado School of Mines' Marc Schiechl will visit Green Bay on April 13 and 14, a source told Packer Report on Monday night.

Packer Report is scheduled to interview Schiechl on Tuesday.

Schiechl finished with a stunning 46 sacks, with his 12 sacks as a senior ranking fifth nationally. For his career, his 70.5 tackles for losses rank fourth in Division II history, and he finished sixth with 19 TFLs as a senior. He added six forced fumbles and two blocked kicks to his impressive senior ledger.

He was the runner-up for the Gene Upshaw Award that goes to Division II's top lineman and the first three-time first-team All-American in school history. In the Cactus Bowl — Division II's all-star game — Schiechl was the defensive player of the game with eight tackles and two sacks.

With the Packers' Jon-Eric Sullivan being one of just three scouts to make the trip to Golden, Colo., for the Mines' pro day on March 8, Schiechl flashed the athletic skill behind the prodigious numbers. Schiechl turned in a 40-yard time of 4.64 seconds and 38 reps on the 225-pound bench press. He did 36 reps when the Colts worked him out on campus today, according to a source.

The 6-foot-3, 255-pound Schiechl is a seventh-round or priority undrafted prospect. He played defensive end in Orediggers' 3-4 scheme and is being viewed at that position by 4-3-scheme teams like the Colts, as well as the 49ers and Raiders, who worked him out last week. Teams like the Packers, who run 3-4 schemes, see him as an outside linebacker.
