The Packers used a pick obtained in a trade with the Dolphins to select sixth-round OG Caleb Schlauderaff, who will provide depth on the offensive line. What follows is a scouting breakdown of Schlauderaff by PFW draft expert Nolan Nawrocki from the 2011 Draft Preview book:

Notes: Last name is pronounced "chlah-der-off." Also lettered once in basketball as a Washington prep. Redshirted in 2006. Played all 13 games in '07, starting the final 10 at left guard and posting 27 pancake blocks, 31 knockdowns and 24 cuts (bowl stats not kept). Started all 13 games at left guard in '08 when he notched 46 pancakes, 31 knockdowns and 19 cuts (no bowl stats). Started all 13 games at left guard in '09 when he graded out at 84 percent with 21 pancakes and 26 cuts (no bowl stats). Left the San Diego State contest due to a knee injury. Started all 13 games at left guard in '10. Did not lift (right pectoral strain) or work out (left hamstring strain) at the Combine.

Positives: Gets in the way and can seal lanes. Functional positional blocker. Flashes some pop in his hands. Fairly dependable, experienced, four-year starter. Coachable, team player. Works hard and plays hard.

Negatives: Average arm length. Plays too small. Does not create a push in the run game. Struggles to reach the block point and adjust on the second level. Soft anchor in pass protection - gives up ground and struggles to adjust to movement. Inconsistent hand use. Faced marginal competition in the Mountain West Conference.

Summary: A lean, upright, positional, wall-off blocker with developmental potential in a zone, slide-protection blocking scheme.

NFL projection: Priority free agent.
