Biography

 
PRO: The Titans continued to rebuild their interior offensive line in the fourth round of the 2013 NFL Draft, selecting California center Brian Schwenke.  A nimble athlete with a thick build, he will compete immediately for a starting role.  Schwenke began his impressive post-college showing at the 2013 Senior Bowl, when he fared well in practices and started for the winning South squad.  At the 2013 NFL Combine, he ranked among the event’s top offensive linemen in several categories, including the three-cone drill (tied for second place at 7.31 seconds), 40-yard dash (sixth at 4.99 seconds), broad jump (tied for 10th at 108 inches) and bench press (tied for eighth with 31 reps of 225 pounds).  

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:
•    As a senior at Cal, Schwenke played center for the first time.  He started all 12 games for the Golden Bears and was named first-team All-Pac-12 by the league’s coaches.  

TITANS TIDBITS:  
•    Schwenke was an avid surfer during the time he spent living in Hawaii as a result of his father’s job in the Navy.
•    His father, Brian Sr., was a SERE (Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape) trainer in the Navy from 1990–2002.
•    Schwenke spent time training prior to the 2013 NFL Draft with the Titans’ eventual first-round pick, guard Chance Warmack.

CAREER TRANSACTIONS:
•     A native of Oceanside, Calif., Schwenke was selected by the Titans in the fourth round (107th overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft.

COLLEGE:
•    In four seasons with the California Golden Bears (2009-12), he played in 48 of 50 possible games.  Started 36 of 37 possible contests over his final three campaigns.  Started games at three different positions during his career, making 16 starts at left guard, 12 at center and eight at right guard.  

AS A SENIOR (2012), named first-team All-Pac-12 by the league’s coaches and second-team All-Pac-12 by Phil Steele in his first season as the team’s starting center.  Added a pair of team honors by capturing the Brick Muller Award as Cal’s Most Valuable Lineman and a Cort Majors Team Captain Award.  Became one of only five Cal players to start each of the team’s 12 games.  Moved to center for the first time at Cal during spring practice after spending most of the first three seasons of his collegiate career at guard.

AS A JUNIOR (2011), played in and started 12 of the team’s 13 games at left guard, missing a contest vs. Washington State (11/5) due to illness that was the only missed start by the team’s five starting offensive linemen all season. Totaled four pancakes, 28 knockdowns and 17 cut blocks.   

AS A SOPHOMORE (2010), started all 12 games, with the first eight starts coming at left guard before he was moved to right guard for his final four starts.
•    Against UC-Davis (9/4), recorded his first career start.

AS A FRESHMAN (2009), played in 12 of 13 possible games off the bench primarily on special teams and as a reserve offensive lineman.  He was one of only three true freshmen to play in 2009 along with kicker Vincenzo D’Amato and tailback Isi Sofele.
