A three-year starter who plays with great leverage, former California center Brian Schwenke was taken by the Titans with the No. 107th overall pick in the fourth round of the NFL Draft on Saturday.

Schwenke started at guard as a sophomore and junior before moving to center for his senior year, when he was named first-team All-Pac 12.

CBSSports.com's Rob Rang says Schwenke can handle bigger defenders.

“While perhaps not the most aesthetically-pleasing blocker, Schwenke shows good quickness, functional strength and understands leverage. He sinks his hips on contact, anchoring well despite being significantly lighter at 6-3, 307 pounds than many of his opponents,” Rang said.

Most analysts peg Schwenke as a center, saying he lacks the power to excel at guard. On the bright side, he has a lovely smile.
