Flying Under the Radar: Aaron Schobel
Aaron Schobel was selected by Buffalo in the second round of the 2001draft after he had an excellent collegiate career at TCU. Schobel was a former high school All-American as a defensive end and tight end in the football rich state of Texas.
Schobel has made an immediate impact ever since being drafted by Buffalo, as he had 6.5 sacks as a rookie while playing limited snaps. Schobel is currently in second place on the Bills all-time sack list, with 63 sacks, as he recently passed Phil Hansen. Schobel is one of just a handful of players in the NFL to notch double-digit sacks in consecutive years, joining only Bruce Smith as the only two men to hold that honor (in Bills history).
Schobel is off to a bit of a slow start to this season, but he remains as a player that the Jaguars offense must account for on each and every play. Khalif Barnes will certainly have his hands full on Sunday, as he did a year ago when these two teams got together. Schobel tallied seven tackles and half a sack in a 27-24 victory over the Jaguars last November. If the Jaguars are going to put a dagger in the playoff hopes of the upstart Buffalo Bills, it begins with blocking Aaron Schobel.
