Since 2016, Schobert has compiled 661 total tackles, including 100+ each year from 2017-21. He also has 10 forced fumbles and 10 interceptions in his career.
After finishing second in tackles for Pittsburgh last season, Schobert will move on and try to fill a key role for the Broncos in 2022. Schobert had 154 total tackles with 33.5 TFL and 13 sacks throughout his career with the Badgers. Hopefully, he puts up another strong run in 2022.
