Cowboys’ Potential 2013 Draft Pick: Chance Warmack, G, Alabama
My latest scouting report is on Alabama guard Chance Warmack.
Warmack looks like a short offensive tackle on the inside. He’s 6’2’’, 322 pounds with an outstanding all-around game. In terms of technique, Warmack is the top guard I’ve studied in four years, beating out former Stanford guard David DeCastro. Warmack is a good athlete; although not to the level of Cooper, he can still pull and get to the second level. Warmack maintains proper pad level and leverage in both the running and passing games almost flawlessly, which is something Cooper doesn’t do to the same degree.
Warmack is strong at the point and can win in short-yardage situations, although he actually doesn’t generally overpower defenders. Instead, he uses his incredible technique and body positioning to wall off defenders from getting to the ball-carrier. It’s really amazing to watch because Warmack is such a technician on the field, always understanding the play design and how he can most appropriately implement his block. He’s really quite cerebral. Warmack still fires off of the ball very well, and once he engages a defender it’s lights out. He doesn’t overextend on his blocks and he continues to drive while keeping perfect position. He never sacrifices technique for the knockout shot.
