Here’s everything you need to know about the newest addition to Rhody’s linebacking corps:
Hometown: Virginia Beach, VA
High School: Frank W. Cox High School
Weight: 205 lbs
Obviously one of the biggest holes that the Rams needed to fill this offseason was the loss of Andrew Bose. And while it’s way too early to say Schrader (or anyone, really) can replace him, building up depth in that area is key.
And Schrader looks to be the same type of linebacker. He’s a run-stopper who can get into the backfield, blow up plays, and disrupt opposing offenses. The numbers speak for themselves: half of Schrader’s solo tackles in his senior season were for losses.
