Tennessee Titans: Anonymity Equals Success In Chance Warmack’s Road to Being Elite
The Tennessee Titans started the first round off with a bang by selecting Chance Warmack, which immediately upgraded an offensive line that struggled opening holes for running back Chris Johnson and failed to give quarterback Jake Locker time to scan through his second and third progressions.
This offseason, Titans general manager Ruston Webster made it a priority to protect his $10 million running back and give his young enigmatic quarterback another chance to succeed. Although Warmack will never win a beauty contest, he is a mauler that will bring smiles to Hall-of-Fame Titans head coach Mike Munchak and offensive line coach Bruce Matthews.
Elite offensive-linemen achieve anonymity and they are only recognizable by the names on the back of their jersey. They do not require bodyguards and only have press conferences welcoming them as draft selection and as a free agent. Warmack has already shaken the hand of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and graced the pages of the Tennessean. Now, he must achieve anonymity. He has dominated against elite competition in college football’s premiere conference (the Southeastern Conference), so he will not be intimidated by the big stage or the heightened expectation.
Warmack will be fortunate to learn the tricks of the trade from two Hall-of-Fame coaches, so his dominance in the AFC South appears to be inevitable. The last time the Titans selected in the top ten, they drafted Locker. This year, they may have found the mauler to help lead a resurgence in the Music City.
