G in the 1st round?
Instead of grabbing the 3rd rated WR or 4th OLB or 3rd DL grab 1st G.
Last year the number 1 rated G David DeCastro slipped all the way to the PIT the 24th pick. If the #1 rated G slipped to HOU would you guys support the pick?
Chance Warmack, G, Alabama
Height: 6-3. Weight: 320.
COMPARES TO: Will Shields, OG, Kansas City Chiefs -- Let's be clear, no incoming rookie truly deserves comparison to a first ballot Hall of Famer, but Warmack is a rare prospect. While perhaps a tad shorter than ideal, Warmack uses his natural leverage advantage to consistently get under the pads of his opponents, driving them off of the ball in the running game and anchoring in pass protection. His lateral agility and balance make him effective getting to and blocking at the second level and handling quicker pass rushers, as well.
STRENGTHS: Warmack is considerably lighter on his feet than one would expect given his stout frame, and is adept at meeting and eliminating linebackers at the second level.
In pass protection, Warmack does a nice job of supplying an initial punch and grasping hold of his opponent, showing good lateral agility to slide as well as the anchor to handle powerful bull-rushers.
Warmack is equally effective when asked to drive defensive tackles off the ball or beat linebackers to the action at the second level.
WEAKNESSES: Due to his lack of height, Warmack may lack the position versatility of his more recognizable linemates Barrett Jones and D.J. Fluker, but he is further along in his development than Fluker and, frankly, makes more eye-popping blocks than Jones. Size means that he'll be relegated strictly to interior blocking in the NFL.
