09/11/2012 - PAC-12: PLAYERS WHOSE NFL DRAFT STOCK IS FALLING - WEEK 2: C Drew Schaefer, Washington: If Schaefer wants to improve his NFL Draft stock, he'll need to play better than he did against LSU on Saturday -- and that's not just Schaefer, that's the Washington offensive line as a whole. The Washington offense was stymied against the No. 3 Tigers. Quarterback Keith Price was sacked four times and the running game was only able to muster 26 yards. Schaefer and the Huskies will have a good chance to rebound this week. You can see him next: Saturday, vs. Portland State, 4 p.m. ET (ESPN). - John Breech, CBSSports.com

07/29/2012 - Top-five Washington prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 4. OL Drew Schaefer...For an offensive line that has struggled with durability and inconsistency over the past several seasons, Schaefer has proven to be a standout. After redshirting in 2008, Schaefer emerged as a solid part of the rotation in his second season with the program, seeing action at multiple positions and eventually starting the final four games of the year at the invaluable left tackle position. Schaefer was moved back inside to his more ideally-suited center position in 2010, starting 11 of 13 games there and moving outside to right tackle when injuries forced the team to re-shuffle up front. Finally allowed the opportunity to play just one position in 2011, Schaefer enjoyed his best season to date, making every snap at center for the Huskies. Though Scaefer's best chance at success in the NFL will come inside, he may be asked to move back outside to left tackle as a senior as the Huskies lost their best offensive lineman a year ago (Kelemete) to the Arizona Cardinals and lost incumbent starting right guard Colin Porter to a career-ending shoulder injury. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

07/29/2012 - Top-five Washington prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 4. OL Drew Schaefer...Schaefer, himself, sat out the spring with what coaches called a "knee sprain." NFL scouts will appreciate the toughness and versatility Schaefer has demonstrated over his career. He's not an elite athlete capable of handling the speed rushers of the NFL as a tackle and can be beaten with quickness inside, as well. However, he's physical, tough and surprisingly effective as a combination blocker despite his lack of top-flight athleticism. Given a chance to develop, he could earn late round consideration in the 2013 draft. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
