04/27/2012 - OT Mitchell Schwartz, California -- The Browns add to the first-round haul of RB Trent Richardson and QB Brandon Weeden with a bookend offensive tackle for Jake Long. Schwartz comes with minimal risk and a very low bust factor and could play inside if needed.
04/02/2012 - NFL DRAFT SCOUT TOP OFFENSIVE LINEMEN: Mitchell Schwartz, California, 6-5, 318...Mitchell has NFL bloodlines. His brother, Geoff, was the Panthers' seventh-round pick out of Oregon in 2008, started in 2010 but was injured last year, and recently signed with the Vikings. Mitchell was a model of consistency at Cal, starting 51 games, 35 at left tackle and 16 at right tackle. He credits diverse blocking schemes at Cal for upgrading his overall play. And that play was impressive at the Senior Bowl workouts, where scouts raved about the way he handled some of the best pass rushers in the country. That was surprising because most scouts believed he projected as a right tackle for the NFL. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange
02/23/2012 - Cal tackle Mitchell Schwartz got lost in the Pac-12 shuffle when it comes to offensive linemen in a year in which two players at his position -- USC's Ryan Kalil and Stanford's Jonathan Martin -- are considered veritable locks as first-round draft picks. Stanford guard David DeCastro is also expected to go in the first round. But Schwartz, the brother of Carolina offensive tackle Geoff Schwartz, might not be far behind, projected as a second- or third-round pick. Schwartz got positive reviews for his performance at the Senior Bowl and thinks the multiple blocking systems at Cal have prepared him well for the next level. "It's all good. We do a little bit of everything at Cal," Schwartz said. "We're probably one of the most diverse offenses in the country. Inside zone, outside zone, man, gap, pulling, sweeps, everything." - Jerry McDonald, The San Jose Mercury News
01/25/2012 - 2012 SENIOR BOWL WEDNESDAY: OT Mitchell Schwartz, California: Overshadowed in the Pac-12 due to the presence of two elite prospects in USC's Matt Kalil and Stanford's Jonathan Martin, Schwartz has stood out this week due to his size (6-5, 317), long arms (33 1/8"), strength and surprising agility. He's held up well at right tackle in pass blocking drills and has done a nice job of sealing off defensive linemen in the running game and has been able to get to the second level, as well. Schwartz has been especially impressive in pass blocking drills, where he's repeatedly stoned Penn State's Jack Crawford and Virginia's Cam Johnson, among others. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
