Michael Schofield off the board in Round Three

It looks like it will be a weekend of celebration for Michael Schofield and his family after the former Wolverine went to the Denver Broncos (pick No. 95 overall) in the third round of the NFL Draft.

Broncos GM John Elway tweeted some positive thoughts on Schofield after the choice.

Schofield becomes the second Wolverine picked in the past two days, joining former bookend teammate Taylor Lewan (No. 11 overall to the Tennessee Titans).

The 6-7, 304-pound Orland Park, Ill., native was a three-year starter for the Maize and Blue, starting at right tackle each of the past two seasons and left guard in 2011.

His selection gives Michigan two players taken in the first three rounds for the first time since the 2008 Draft when LT Jake Long (Round 1), QB Chad Henne (Round 2), OLB Shawn Crable (Round 3) and WR Mario Manningham (Round 3) all went in the top three.

It also marks the first time since 2001 that U-M has had a pair of offensive linemen taken in the same draft (Steve Hutchinson and Jeff Backus back then).
