Green Bay Packers 2011 NFL Draft — Sixth Round, No. 179: G Caleb Schlauderaff All Green Bay Packers All the Time

With the 179th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers selected Utah guard Caleb Schlauderaff.

He measures 6-4, 310 pounds with 32.2″ arms. Schlauderaff didn’t participate at the NFL combine due to a calf injury.

College history

Schlauderaff was a four-year starter at Utah who played in 52 career collegiate games (49 starts). He was named First Team All-MWC his senior year and Third Team All-American at guard. He was also named Second Team All-MWC his junior year.

An accomplished student-athlete, Schlauderaff was a four-time Academic All-MWC.


Schlauderaff is an experienced and intelligent addition to the interior of the Packers offensive line. After starting for four years at Utah, Schlauderaff will come into the NFL as a solid run blocker who needs to improve in pass protection.

He has experience all over the offensive line, but it seems scouts are convinced that guard is the only position he’s capable of at the next level.

Does this pick signal that the Packers are prepared to lose Daryn Colledge? I wouldn’t go that far yet, but this selection does give the Packers some insurance at the position moving forward.

Also, Schlauderaff is the fifth offensive player in six picks so far for the Packers.
