John Michael Schmitz will be 1 of the leaders on Minnesota’s offensive line in 2022. He earned some of the top grades amongst centers last season for the Golden Gophers.

Schmitz led the way for all B1G centers with an 81.3 pass blocking grade. The Golden Gopher lineman also had an 88.5 PFF grade which was 2nd in the country. Schmitz was also 2nd in the country in run blocking grade, with an 87.5 rating.

The PFF College account on Twitter posted about Schmitz’s accolades from the 2021 season.

If Schmitz and the rest of the Golden Gopher offensive line can stay healthy, they will be a force to be reckoned with yet again in 2022.
