    Chance Warmack in round one?

    Even with my preference of a NT, if Chance was there when we pick I would take him. He probably won't be but just for conversation would you pick him if available?

    Just think:

    LT.............STARKS



    LG..............WARMACK



    C...............POUNCEY



    RG.............DECASTRO



    RT.............ADAMS/GILBERT


    I think Casey Hampton could run with that line.

    I couldn't argue that fact, besides Warmack likes to eat, sometimes too much. That could be an issue with him in the off season.
    They call Casey Hampton Big Snack, Warmack would be called three course meal.


    Alabama's offensive line is best in the country but still operates in anonymity
    Barrett Jones, Chance Warmack, D.J. Fluker all could be first-round picks in NFL draft
    Warmack has dreams of competitive eating, a la "Man v. Food"
    TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — The signature burger at Mugshots Grill and Bar is three all-beef patties, six strips of bacon, three slices of cheese — your choice, cheddar or American — along with tomatoes, pickles, lettuce and red onions, all layered on four bun slices, everything slathered in mayonnaise and mustard.

    The challenge, should you choose to accept, is to devour the entire Mugshot — approximately 2 pounds, post-cooked weight, and that's not counting the accompanying large order of fries, an onion ring and a fried pickle — in 12 minutes. Clearly, this is not a task for the faint of heartburn, but finish it and the food is free.

    Chance Warmack ate two.

    D.J. Fluker verifies the feat, which happened not long ago at the burger joint near the University of Alabama campus. Although Fluker knows his offensive linemate is an all-world eater, he still marvels. But Warmack just shrugs, says it's no big deal, and explains how he was able to accomplish it:

    As much as Chadman has advocated 'dominating the LOS', and Chance Warmack would go some way to doing that, it's got to be remembered that Willie Colon had possibly his best season pre-injury at LG, and DeCastro missed all but 2 games. It's quite possible that LOS dominance is possible with the guys already on the roster. Additionaly, Colon has been invested into quite substantionally, and is unlikely to be moved on, whereas Hampton is more than likely gone this year.

    In the end, Warmack would be a good choice, just not Chadman's #1 choice.... at this point.

    put me down for a NO.

    I don't believe we can afford to spend another 1st round pick on an interior OL.

    nor is it needed.

    Agreed. Our 2013 OLmen are already on the team. Colon will probably be the LG (barring any injuries) just because of the cap hit the team would take if they let him go.

    Hampton's situation is interesting. He wants to keep playing and he would like to do it in the Burgh. He could be back for one more year.

    The whole NT position is interesting at the moment. Hampton was clearly down on what he's been able to produce in the past. Despite everyone clamouring over McLendon, he couldn't surpass a clearly less effective Hampton- so where does that place McLendon? He might well be a player on the rise, but if his standard right now is lower than Casey's, that's not good enough to start. Ta'amu was obviously drafted to compete for NT, but that mid-season brain explosion could cost him dearly. He's only signed for this year & next on the league minimum, so he's an easy cut if the coaches don't think his head is in the right place. Fangupo, on the other hand, has been signed for 4 years (did anyone know that??).

    Casey was paid $4m+ last season- he'd have to sign for no more than half of that, at best, for Chadman to think he's valuable enough to bring back. Given that there are now 3 young NT's on the roster, Chadman is no longer convinced that NT is the #1 priority in this draft (despite there being no real stand out future NT at this point). It might be that Hampton (on say $1m) combined with McLendon & either Ta'amu or Fangupo is the best scenario for next season. If neither McLendon or the successful Ta'amu/Fangupo can show enough to surpass Hampton next season, then the Steelers draft strategy will be forced on them in 2014- but that might be a palatable situation at this point.

    My Theory? They are going to see if Mclendon can play DE in the 3-4. At 6'4 with his body build, he may be a better end then nose in the 3-4. That would give them Ta'amu and Fangupo at NT. Mclendon can play the nose on passing downs.

    Just a theory.

    That could work- McLendon would become more of a 'roving' DL than specifically any 1 position. They could even play around with it & have Ziggy do the same.

    Of course- if neither Ta'amu or Fangupo pan out... back to square 1.
