Default 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.

If Warmack is the best guy on the board then you take him, OG or not.

If it means we can save a few million by cutting Wade Smith, then sure. We could use that money, coupled with Walter's savings to get a true #2 WR.

If you think Newton is the guy at RT; otherwise, I think we can use the pick at another position.

Default Re: G in the 1st round?

I would go Jonathan Cooper before Warmack if I were going G. Fits our system better IMO.

Default Re: G in the 1st round?

I think we've got to many other team holes to worry about OG in the 1st round but if we did it seems to me the Texans favor athleticism and speed in their O-linemen and instead of looking for a true OG, I'd look at an OT that can also play OG. OT's are usually a little taller and more athletic than a true OG and faster to the second level of blocking. I'd look at Lane Johnson, Oday Aboushi, or Dallas Thomas in the 2nd. If I did look at OG in the 1st it would be Jonathan Cooper who I think is very athletic.

Alabama runs a zone system, their offense is actually pretty comparable to ours, and Warmack was pretty dominant this past year.

If the 3rd rated WR or 4th rated OLB is rated as a better player than the top rated guard, why wouldn't I take the better player seeing how I could use both a top rated WR & a top rated OLB?



Am I missing something?

Default Re: G in the 1st round?

Not saying 1st round but you have to think about adding depth and talent. We can all admit the OL was somewhat a problem this year. Not to mention Caldwell, Harris, and Butler are all FA's so that leaves you with....

OT
Brown
Newton
Mondek

OG
Smith
Jones
Brooks

C
Myers
White

Mondek and White are both PS level players right now. That leaves you with Brown and Newton at OT and no depth. OG is good with Smith, Jones, and Brooks but you still need depth. I wouldn't be surprised if we bring Harris back but I think Butler and Caldwell are gone.
