Why is that important?
Schofield is the guy who was lining up at right tackle for the Broncos in 2015 and was absolutely destroyed by Khalil Mack to the tune of 5 sacks IN ONE HALF.
Our own Goro Burroughs remembers.

To be fair, one of those sacks came around the left tackle.
For the Chargers’ part, they have said they will be playing Schofield at guard, which is where the Broncos put him last season probably in large part due to getting worked over by Mack.
That’s probably a good idea. Lest they feel like ending Philip Rivers’s career early.
Though that’s not great news for Mack and the other pass rushers in the division, the Chargers are probably a couple injuries away from Schofield starting on the outside.
