NFL Draft 2013: Chance Warmack could slide, according to Adam Schefter


While many pundits believe former Alabama guard Chance Warmack will be taken around the No. 10 pick, Adam Schefter believes he could fall a little further.

Many NFL Draft analysts project former Alabama offensive guard Chance Warmack to be selected somewhere around the No. 10 pick when draft day rolls around on April 25. However, ESPN's Adam Schefter believes Warmack could slip a bit. In a recent mailbag post for ESPN Insider, Schefter said Warmack might be available when the Dallas Cowboys select at No. 18.

A reader asked Schefter about the Cowboys' picks in the first and second rounds. In his reply, Schefter alluded to the possibility of Warmack falling down the board:

If Kenny Vaccaro somehow slid down to their spot and was available, that would be an ideal pick, Wilson. But so would a guard that fell to them. What if Alabama guard Chance Warmack is still around at that point in the draft? I know most people don't believe that will be the case, but it wouldn't be completely shocking based on some of the whispers around the league. However it plays out, Dallas could do a lot worse than coming away with a safety and a guard, drafted in either order, in the first two rounds of the draft.

Warmack is viewed by many as the best guard in the draft, which should make him a high priority for teams looking to improve their offensive lines. He has pretty good size at 6'2, 317 pounds, and considering he committed just two penalties during the 2012 season, he brings great discipline to his position. Plus, he's coming out of an Alabama program that has produced such recent NFL talents as Mark Ingram, Julio Jones, Trent Richardson and Courtney Upshaw.

In his latest Mock Draft, ESPN's Mel Kiper projected Warmack going to the Tennessee Titans at No. 10. Over at CBS Sports, Pat Kirwan, Dane Brugler and Rob Rang have him going at Nos. 10, 11 and 12 to the Titans, San Diego Chargers and Miami Dolphins, respectively. However, CBS's Pete Prisco sees the Cowboys grabbing Warmack at 18.

In SB Nation's recent Mock Draft, the New York Jets selected Warmack at No. 9.
