Tennessee Titans select C Brian Schwenke in 4th round

Score one for my seven-round mock, as the Tennessee Titans used their fourth round pick, 107th overall, on the player I predicted/wanted them to take, offensive lineman Brian Schwenke from California.

Schwenke is a center prospect with good size at 6'3", 314 pounds, who also has excellent quickness off the snap. He's probably a more versatile player and better scheme fit for the Titans than Travis Frederick, whom the Cowboys took in the first round. He also has experience playing left guard for the Golden Bears

Per Eric Stoner, the Titans apparently spent about 6 hours working him out before the draft. Center is a position that depends a lot on trust, both to snap and to make the line calls, so they seem sold on Schwenke. Pencil him in as your 2014 starting center, though he'll have to improve his lower body strength and overall conditioning (I don't even want to type his body fat percentage at the Combine) to actually take that role.
