College prospect Chance Warmack is a tenacious interior lineman who excels both in the run and pass blocking game out of the University of Alabama Crimson Tide. If the St. Louis Rams were wise the would invest in protection of their most expensive asset in quarterback Sam Bradford. Warmack has a massive 6′ 3″ 320 lb. frame and is regarded as the best interior lineman of the 2013 NFL Draft class. ESPN’s Todd McShay went as far as to grade him as the best guard prospect since Steve Hutchinson came out in 2001. Warmack hasn’t missed a start since his Sophomore year so it is a testament to his durability to play three straight years in the Southeastern Conference and excel at it to boot.
This has been said time and time again if a quarterback doesn’t have protection will not succeed in the NFL due to not having time to throw a pass at best but at worst, a quarterback can get rattled and never recover, kind of like former Houston Texans and fellow number one overall pick quarterback David Carr. Carr never got protection that he needed and is considered one of the biggest busts in league history. Besides protecting for Bradford, drafting a player like Warmack will make whomever their running back is in 2013 to flourish and thus making the Rams a dual threat offensive team and could turn heads and be the third team in the NFC West division with the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks.
