Overview

Schwenke (pronounced SHWANK-ee) was a three-star recruit coming out of high school. He was tabbed as the No. 44 offensive guard in the country and the No. 60 player overall in California by Rivals. In his senior season, Schwenke played both offense and defense, and was named first-team All-State, All-Area, All-County, All-San Diego Section and All-Valley League. Following his senior season, Schwenke earned MVP honors at the Palo Alto Nike Camp.



As a freshman, Schwenke participated in 12 games, mainly as a special teams player. In 2010, as a sophomore, Schwenke registered 12 starts. Eight of which were at left guard, and four of which were at right guard. As a junior, he started in 12 games (missed one game due to illness) at left guard. In his senior season, Schwenke became the team's center, and started all 12 games there. He earned Coaches first-team all-conference honors for his play.

Analysis

Strengths

Extremely quick off the snap, gets his hands on his target very quickly. Quick to provide assistance on a double team, and aware of who needs help. Plays with a good, low pad level. Constantly wins the leverage battle. Gets his hands inside of the chest plate of defenders.

Weaknesses

Not an impressive body type. Needs to do a better job of being able to sit back into his blocks in pass protection. Lacks great power. Shotgun snaps are often placed low.

Bottom Line

Schwenke has a wealth of starting experience, both at guard and center. Schwenke comes off the ball very quickly, and is sound in his hand placement technique. He plays with a low pad level. Schwenke lacks great power, so he will be a better fit at center.
