Prospect Profile: Kyle Schmitt

Kyle Schmitt School: Maryland
Ht: 6-3 Wt: 295 40: 5.32 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Two-year starter awarded all-conference honors since his junior campaign.

Positives: Hardworking, durable lineman best in a small area. Blocks with forward lean, works to stay square and keeps opponents in front of him. Bends his knees playing with leverage, immediately gets into blocks and jolts opponents at the point. Alert and works well with teammates. Excellent shotgun snapper who quickly gets the ball into the passer's hands.

Negatives: Lacks strength in his base and gets pushed back off the ball. Not fluid moving about the field or effective on the second level.

Analysis: A consistent blocker with a good feel for the position, Schmitt must make gains in the weight room to have a shot at the next level. The ability to effectively handle the shotgun snap could help him catch on as a backup.
