Yeah, I love this pick. We got two of the best interior OL in this draft. FINALLY, the staff sees what a weakness it has been and really works to correct it. Getting Hunter in the second was also a steal. They have brought in at least 3 guys who can start in this league, and that's pretty damn good. They have others with potential to start and/or develop. But I LOVE this pick.

Schwenke was my favorite center so I'm loving the pick.

 

Also worth noting is that one knock on Warmack is that he isn't the sharpest tool in the shed and may need a smart guy playing next to him making the calls.  Well Schwenke is noted as being a really smart guy.  Nice fit.

Swenke is stout but very quick and can do things Mawea did without giving up toughness at the point.  I think he can be as good or better than Myers. 

 

 

Almost not fair to compare him to Mawae - the old version we had anyway.  Schwenke doesn't have Mawae's 2nd level blocking ability.  Not that Brian's bad, but if you look at Mawae over the course of his career, you're talking about a guy that's almost a lock to be a HOF center.  If Schwenke is anywhere near that good, we got quite the pick. 

 

And somewhat related to Mawae as well with regards to line calls, I really like that Schwenke scored a 31 on the Wonderlic.  Most important position on the line to be mentally sharp. And what was that thing said about Chance Warmack, about him needing to be next to a smart guy or similar?   (Check.)

Whoops.  Just posted and hadn't seen this.

 

So yes, I concur.

Sounds more like- finally the ones that do see the problem have been freed to act on it.

So Warmack is Bubba and Schwenke is Forest?

Warmack isn't dumb.  This is football, not rocket science.  Listen to him talk.  He might not be a genius but he's at least average intelligence and that's plenty to play guard.

His day after interview on 3HL he talked about the importance of  knowing not only his assignment, but also those of the players around him in order to have a complete understanding of how the play was supposed to work; did not sound at all like a guy who needed someone around him to help him about. A media guy posts something on a website and everybody acts as if it's gospel truth

I didn't get that sense from listening to him talk but lets all be honest here... Levitre is probably going to be making al the calls anyway I'd expect.

So it sounds like Schwenke gets to call her Miss Jackson. Fine by me, that's how you want your linemen to play.
