Schofield is a former 2014 third-round pick by the Denver Broncos and even helped protect quarterback Peyton Manning on the team that won Super Bowl 50. He was waived by the team in 2017 and then claimed by the Los Angeles Chargers.

In three seasons with the Chargers, Schofield started in 37 games for the team and was reliable at the right guard position. Schofield is 6-foot-6, 301 pounds and one of his strengths is his versatility given he has made NFL appearances at left tackle and right tackle, too.
