NFL Draft results 2013: Chance Warmack selected by Titans with No. 10 pick

Chance Warmack will be paving lanes for Chris Johnson in 2013.


With the No. 10 pick in the 2013 NFL draft, the Tennessee Titans selected Alabama's Chance Warmack. The offensive lineman was the No. 1 guard available and No. 3 overall prospect in draft rankings by SB Nation's Dan Kadar.

Warmack started his final three years at Alabama and became one of the strongest players in all of college football. That allowed him to be a mauler at the left guard position, and he manhandled defensive lineman in support of the Crimson Tide's dominant running game. Warmack was a unanimous All-American his senior season and was penalized just twice all year.

The Titans signed Andy Levitre in free agency, and now they have solidified the interior of their offensive line. Chris Johnson will surely be pleased running behind Warmack.

Top-flight strength at the guard position is enough to get attention from any NFL team, but SB Nation's Matthew Fairburn points out that Warmack is technically sound as well:

While many will first point to Warmack's strength and some of the eye-popping blocks he made this season, his most impressive trait to me is his consistent technique. In fact, I've never seen anyone quite as technically sound at the position. Warmack always plays with ideal pad level, getting lower that his counterpart and using that leverage to open holes in the running game. He's smart with his blocks, attacking the proper shoulder and makes very few mistakes.
