INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- Former University of Michigan wide receiver Jeremy Gallon (Apopka, Fla./Apopka) and offensive linemen Taylor Lewan (Cave Creek, Ariz./Chaparral) and Michael Schofield (Orland Park, Ill./Carl Sandburg) are scheduled to participate in the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine held Feb. 19-25 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Ind.
Lewan and Schofield will report to the combine on Wednesday, while Gallon will report to the event on Thursday. Throughout the week, scouts from every NFL team will evaluate the former Wolverines through a series of physical and mental tests, ranging from the bench press and on the field workouts to medical exams, psychological tests and interview questions. Lewan and Schofield's on-the-field workouts will take place on Saturday (Feb. 22), while Gallon will work out on the field with wide receivers, quarterbacks and running backs on Sunday (Feb. 23).
Gallon put forth a record-setting campaign during his final season with the Maize and Blue, posting 89 receptions for 1,373 yards and nine touchdowns. The fifth-year senior broke program records for receiving yards in a single season (1,373 yards) and a single game (369 yards vs. Indiana), and set a new school mark by recording a catch in 39 consecutive games. Gallon finished his standout collegiate career third on U-M's all-time lists for career receptions (173) and receiving yards (2,704). A participant in the 2014 East-West Shrine Game, Gallon hauled in an East team-best four receptions for 55 yards in the game.
Lewan, who opened 48 career games at left tackle -- including 41 consecutive -- became only the ninth Michigan offensive lineman to be a starter for four seasons for the Maize and Blue. A first team All-American by Sporting News, the Wolverines' offensive captain did not allow a sack during the 2013 season on his way to being recognized as the Big Ten's top offensive lineman for the second consecutive season. U-M's first two-time All-America selection since offensive lineman Jake Long (2006-07), Lewan was also a semifinalist for the Rotary Lombardi Award, a second team Walter Camp All-American selection and recipient of the Hugh R. Rader Memorial Award. Lewan was a 2012 All-America first team choice by the Walter Camp Football Foundation, Associated Press, ESPN.com and SI.com. He also was an All-Big Ten first team choice by the league's coaches and media during his junior campaign.
Schofield participated in the 2014 Senior Bowl after completing his Michigan career. He started all 13 games last season at right tackle and earned All-Big Ten honorable mention from the league's coaches. A four-year letterman, Schofield started 36 career games for the Wolverines, including 26 consecutive at right tackle and 10 at left guard.
