Rant Sports 2013 NFL Mock Draft: Cleveland Browns Select Chance Warmack at No. 6
With the selection of Alabama Crimson Tide guard, Chance Warmack, the Cleveland Browns now have arguably the best offensive line in all of football. The Browns have struggled at the guard position for many years now and Warmack is a plug-and-play type of individual that will have a very succesful NFL career.
Recently, Cleveland has struggled with former fifth round pick Jason Pinkston and former third round pick Shawn Lauvao at the guard position. Pinkston had a life threatening blood clot and missed most of last season. He was put on injured reserve. Pinkston is more of a natural tackle than guard too.
Then there is Ravenna, OH native, John Greco. At 28 years old, Greco did a nice job filling in for Pinkston last year. However, he is a back up lineman at best. In the NFL, a team can never have enough hogs on the offensive line upfront.
Lauvao is good, but Warmack will be great at right guard. Lauvao has started 33 games in his three years in the NFL. He has been serviceable and done everything the Browns have expected of him. Lauvao’s rookie contract ends after this coming season and then may test the free agent market. Warmack would make every fan in Cleveland forget real quick about Lauvao.
At 6’2″ and 317 lbs, Warmack may be the surest and safest player this draft has to offer. In 2007, the Browns selected a left tackle early in the first round and that has played out quite nicely. The once-every-decade player will once again pave holes for his former teammate, Trent Richardson. Warmack will be the Browns’ bull dozing guard for the next 10 plus years.
