Comcast Draft Profiles: Shann Schillinger Edition

As announced previously in this space, Comcast has generously agreed to support the best NFL community around -- us!  As part of that effort, between now and the end of the 2010 NFL season Comcast will be sponsoring a variety of special editorial and interactive features on our site. 


We're doing the draft in reverse with the help of Comcast (It's Bombastic!) First up is safety and awesome name Shann Schillinger, who was drafted in the sixth round of the 2010 NFL Draft. You'll find our profile of him after the jump.

Name: Shann Schillinger

Alias: Clearly Photoshopped Head

Age:23

College: Montana, home of Kroy Biermann

2010 Role: Backup safety/special teamer/practice squadder

Reminds Us Faintly Of: Matt Giordano at worst, smaller Sammy Knight at best

Why He's Good: Productive college player who racked up 10 picks and 19 passes defensed in 57 games. Posted big tackle numbers yearly, too, topping out at 108 in 2008. Ran a 4.51 40 yard dash at Montana's pro day and posted an impressive 37 inch vertical leap. Has a reputation as a smart player who is able to do anything that's asked of him. Extremely well-rounded safety. Versatile enough to play special teams.

Why He's Not: Not extremely athletic, so upside may be limited. Good ball skills, but may struggle in coverage at the NFL level. May struggle to down tight ends and big wide receivers at this level.

Notable Quotable: "I talked to the GM and head coach earlier today, and they asked me if I wanted to be a part of their team. I know that I have got a lot of hard work ahead of me, but I also have a chance to play in the NFL, which is a long-time goal and dream for me."

Bottom Line: Schillinger's a quality dude who will be a valuable backup safety and special teams player, as long as he can show enough to crack the roster in 2010.
