The pick of Schuler comes on the heels of picking Justin Davis with their second round pick.picks gives RSL added defensive-depth which is needed. Schuler is a big central defender from Creighton who was projected at #18 in Ives most recent Mock Draft. He reportedly had a good Combine - I'm not sure why he dropped so far.
Also, Garth Lagerwey tweeted this message regarding the Mathis trade. Still not sure that it makes sense to me:
Took care of a veteran player in moving him where his wife's family is. All the best Clint we wish you well! RSLGM
