Should Schroeder leave, it would certainly be a tough loss. I thought he was one of CMU's best players in the final five games of the season. He ran with a lot of power and burst, but that style leads to a lot of injuries. CMU has depth at back with Tim Phillips, Paris Cotton, Carl Volny and the young freshmen that were red-shirted including Zurlon Tipton and Malek Redd.
Also on a side note, I have seen Taylor Bradley around the offices a lot and it looks like he will be eligible to play next season, which can help make up for a loss of Josh Gordy and Kirkston Edwards in the secondary. I for one thought Bradley would start in 2009 at cornerback, so if the year off hasn't hurt his skills too much, he could be a big asset to the defense next season.
