Well then you haven't paid much attention. Almost everyone has him rated that high.

However, guards are becoming more important, and Warmack, who's strong in both pass protection and run blocking, projects as a 15-year player in the NFL.
Thanks for the links. I must check the wrong draft sites. I also had a link saved that had some of the best mock guys ranked and who won there mock contest out of the media (big names) for that year but can not find it now. Link must be broken? I think Walter did ok with his pick % wise. But can not confirm yet. Edit: it was the huddle report and the page is broken.
Here is the link that works: http://www.thehuddlereport.com/index...ftscores.shtml
And it was not Walter I was thinking of but Scott wright of draftcountdown. Which he has Warmack at 5 overall rank. And has him going 10th to Tenn. Titans.
Mel Kiper Jr. has Warmack going #7 overall to the Arizona Cardinals.
The jury is still out on Adams and Gilbert. We really don't know if either can play OT very well. I am really concerned that they need to bring back Starks and HOPE that between the other two that one can play RT. (Plus, we need an extra body because we kNOW we will have injuries.
Usually when teams draft in the higher rounds for O-linemen they are looking for Tackles especially LT's that seem to be a premium position on the line. In this paticular draft we may still have a shot at Warmack who in my mind would make that interior of our line dominate. My point in this was to see if there was an area of our team that we could mazimize it to become dominate.

Those three were our best linemen, and Starks was consistent and never left the field but the Steelers don't look to keep him unfortunately.
Big Ben is our best chance to regain a championship team, he's in his prime. The Steelers need to surround him with the best line possible and the rest of that offense will work even without Mendy and Wallace.
When our line was healthy even with the players we had they played well as we seen Ben have a damn good season early on, now think if we add a dominate Guard to our line how good it could be at least in the run game where we need it.
For me, if I'm an owner and want to build a great team I start with a QB, then try and get the best players possible on both lines offense and defense. When you have dominate people up front you can get by with above average players like WR, RB, that line will make them have more success.
Now, here is my question to you guys, if Warmack is there when we pick would you select him? I want our interior line to be dominate so I would take him over any other position. For sure OLB is a great need but who comes in here to dominate day one with Woodley and Worlids starting? Pardon the pun, but I'll take my chance on CHANCE!
This is what Chance could do for our run game...http://i.turner.ncaa.com/dr/ncaa/nca...plit-photo.jpg
if Warmack were still there at #17 I would be all for drafting him, especially since both Colon and Foster may be gone.
From what I'm reading, that would fall into the "happy accident" category. Kind of like DeCastro last year.

Chance Warmack takes the place of Jonathan Cooper in this spot for the Rams in the new simulation. Warmack and Cooper are very similar in ability and accolades, with the exception that Warmack has 4 other potential first round lineman around him and the Rams were burned not so long ago by an ex-Alabama lineman (Alex Barron). Jeff Fisher has never in the past taken an offensive lineman anywhere in the 1st round, and he is unlikely to look very deep into Rams draft history either. Those things being known, the Rams greatest need here is on the defense at Linebacker. Should Fisher forego his history and pick an offensive lineman in the first round, I am sure Chance Warmack is likely to be the name called. I believe, however, that Jeff Fisher will go with need and defense with someone like Barkevious Mingo of LSU.
If he is there we have to take him.. BPA.. forget Te'o.
