Schrader is likely to be a mid-to-late Day 3 pick as he has one season of real production in college. He demonstrated more than enough talent during that season to warrant a selection, but the lack of high-level competition is certain to scare some teams off.

The Green Bay Packers could be an interesting fit. Aaron Jones is getting on in years and AJ Dillon will be moving on in free agency. Schrader could be the perfect compliment to Jones and form an excellent duo for a young and exciting Packers squad.
