Michigan offensive lineman Steve Schilling will play in Senior Bowl

By Michael Rothstein

When Michigan offensive lineman Steve Schilling is done with the Gator Bowl, he won’t be done playing football for the season.

The fifth-year senior guard told on Monday that he has been invited and will play in the Senior Bowl on Jan. 29 in Mobile, Ala.

“They sent us the program from last year’s game, so you see all the great players that played in it,” Schilling said. “It’s a great honor to show your talents in front of the scouts and everyone else in the country.”

For the 6-foot-5, 308-pound Schilling, making a post-season all-star game has always been a goal. Most NFL Draft web sites have named Schilling as a mid-round prospect in April’s draft.

Brandon Graham and Zoltan Mesko, former Michigan players who were picked in last year’s NFL Draft, were selected for the 2010 Senior Bowl.

“That’s the big game to get invited to as a senior athlete,” Schilling said. “So that’s definitely the goal.”

Good for Steve. One of the last connections to good old Michigan football left on the team. He is a good athlete and will need to put on about 15-20 lbs to play guard in the NFL but he can get it done...tough and smart kid.

Congrats, Steve. Thanks for your continued loyalty through the years to the team and UM. Good luck at both the Gator and Senior Bowls.
