Nobody could have guessed where those two athletes would end up three years later.

The former Oredigger defensive end is putting his engineering career on hold as he enters the NFL draft April 28 in hopes of making the roster of an NFL team. Schiechl has been working out with teammates Kaleb Anderson and Blaine Sumner and has already been contacted by members of the Indianapolis Colts, Green Bay Packers, Denver Broncos, San Fransisco 49ers, Buffalo Bills and Jacksonville Jaguars.
