Showcases above-average lateral agility when asked to mirror in pass protection and when he is patient he does a nice job extending his arms and working his hands through the play. However, too often he lunges into defenders tying to get on them prematurely and can be easily slipped on contact and gives up penetration inside.
Looks more comfortable sliding his feet and mirroring in space, but even so he isn't real heavy handed and struggles to lock out and win a block outside. Isn't a guy who will ever drive anyone off the snap in the run game, but has the length and body control to seal at times when he has a chance to get out of his stance. But overall, lacks the first step and overall range to be much of a factor in the run game at the line or at the second level in the NFL.
Impression: Is a nice-sized kid, but struggles to anchor inside, lacks great initial burst off the football and struggles to win blocks outright at the college level. Nothing more than a camp body at this stage."
Positive: Explosive small-area blocker who's been productive on the college level. Quickly sets up off the snap, stays square, and turns defenders from the action. Bends his knees, blocks with leverage, and keeps his feet moving throughout the action. Shows the ability to adjust and effectively knock defenders from their angle of attack with good punch. Keeps his head on a swivel, plays with a nasty attitude, and will hit multiple defenders off a single snap. Uses good body positioning to seal defenders from the action.
Negative: Gets minimal movement run blocking. Lumbers about the field and ineffective in motion.
Analysis: Schlauderaff was a solid college lineman with adequate upside for the next level. He has enough skill and versatility to be a backup in a system that does not ask him to block in motion."

Strengths: Schlauderaff is a smart player who plays with toughness. Gets the job done with his blocks as he goes full boar to the whistle. Has good upper body and lower body strength to drive defenders to the ground. Gets his hands on the defender most of the time. He shows the ability to pull around the center and get his hat on a defender, as well as making a block at the second level. Picks up blitzes and stunts well.
Weaknesses: Not the greatest athlete. Doesn't have the feet to mirror defenders, and will lose leverae at times in pass protection. Needs to improve his punch both in the run game and in pass pro. Prone to false starts.
Projection: Fourth or fifth round. Schlauderaff should compete, be a good backup guard at the next level, and possibly develop into an adequate starter in the right system."
