Chance Warmack is expected to be a first-round pick.
Warmack ran the 40-yard dash in 5.49 seconds at the combine which was a not-so-pretty time. At 6'2" and 317 pounds, there's no doubt he is a big man. In the picture above, he carries a good bit of it around the middle just like Warford.
In reviewing tape of the game against LSU, Warmack didn't have the look of much more than a blocker who locks onto his first block and can't take on a second one. On a screen play, Warmack was the lead blocker and got spun around, leaving the running back to basically fend for himself. The one time he pulled out from his left guard spot, he looked painfully slow to get to the other end of the line.
When he released outside on a late-game screen pass, Warmack's lack of speed caused him to completely miss the linebacker he was supposed to get out on. Luckily for the Crimson Tide, the back who caught the pass was able to slip tackles and get to the end zone for the game-winning score.
Warmack can be found within five yards of the line of scrimmage on virtually every play, even at the end of the play, so his lack of speed limits him to being a first-level blocker only.
SI.com put together a writeup on Warmack and in it was the fact that Warmack wants to gain additional weight to his frame prior to the draft. The concern is that if he's already getting beaten in the open field and doesn't get far downfield on blocks, why would putting weight on be a good idea?
