The Tennessee Titans went with a popular trend by taking offensive lineman Chance Warmack with the 10th pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. Warmack was the 5th offensive lineman selected in the top-ten, something that many expected could happen. The talented guard was the safe and smart pick for the Titans. Head coach Mike Munchak was an offensive lineman, so many speculated he would draft a guard in the first round.
Guard was the safe pick for Tennessee, but it was also the right pick. They have one of the best backfields in football with Shonn Greene and Chris Johnson, and now Warmack will join free agent signing Andy Levitre, to clear the way for the pair of running backs in 2013 and beyond.
On top of everything else, though, Warmack will help give Jake Locker a chance. His career has been very lack-luster so far, but he also hasn’t had the best line in front of him. With Tennessee’s two key offseason additions, Locker’s chances of success just went way up.
Warmack was the second of three Alabama players taken in a row in the first round, something that just speaks volumes about the talent Nick Saban is churning out. Titans’ fans should be happy with the team’s selection, because a good line, is good for everybody. Everything starts up front, and now the Titans have two guys they can count on for a long time. In addition, you know they’ll get some of the best coaching possible.
