Dallas Cowboys select Luke Schoonmaker in 2nd round of 2023 NFL Draft

The Dallas Cowboys selected Michigan tight end Luke Schoonmaker in the second round of the 2023 NFL Draft with the No. 58 pick.

Schoonmaker played four seasons at Michigan, but only two games over his first two years. After putting up pedestrian stats in 2021, Schoonmaker broke out as a senior.

Last season, Schoonmaker had 35 catches, 418 yards, three touchdowns and 11.9 yards per catch. Over the course of his career, Schoonmaker had 54 catches, 637 yards, seven touchdowns and 11.8 yards per catch.

Schoonmaker helped Michigan win back-to-back Big Ten titles and make the College Football Playoff two years in a row.

As a member of the Class of 2018, Schoonmaker was a three-star recruit out of Hamden (Conn.) Hall, according to the On3 Industry Ranking, a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. He was the No. 3 overall prospect in the state, the No. 43 tight end in the class and the No. 796 overall prospect in the class.

What NFL Draft analysts are saying about Luke Schoonmaker

NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein broke down the game tape of Schoonmaker after his career at Michigan.

The biggest sticking point with Schoonmaker is his ability to compete aggressively for the football in tight spaces. It could also take a year of experience before he fully develops into a reliable role for an NFL offense.

“Versatile combination tight end capable of performing a variety of tasks in one-, two- or three-tight end sets,” Zierlein wrote. “Schoonmaker steps foot on the field ready for action as a run blocker and does a nice job of competing in the entry and sustain phases of the block. He will need to add more muscle and play strength but already has a feel for creating run-lane angles with his footwork. 

“He has the athletic talent to run a slightly expanded route tree, but he needs to do a better job of competing aggressively for catch space and meeting throws with extended hands. He could see action early but might need a year or so before he works himself into a full-time TE2 role.”
