Default Is Chance Warmack Going Top 5?

Coming into the season according to NFL.com, Warmack was graded as the highest prospect in the draft slightly ahead of Joeckel. However, we all know that OG's aren't drafted that high with Iupati, the highest lately at #13.
Iupati is easily the top OG in the NFL and a dominate force for San Fran. Warmack is graded higher probably because Iupati came from Idaho and Warmack played for the national champs, Alabama.

How high will he go, top 5, top 10 or later. Whoever gets this guy will have an OL that is dramatically improved. Where would you take him?

I don't think Iupati is "easily" the top OG in the NFL. While good, I don't think he's even the top, though that's debatable.

I would take Warmack somewhere after Cooper.

Raiders do have an opening at LG with Cooper Carlisle on his way out but its very doubtful a team with so many needs takes a guard with a premium pick. I can see him at 10 to the Titans though.

I really like Fluker too, its so easy to fall for these Bama boys, so many good prospects.

You would have to go back to a John Hannah to find a guard taken anywhere the top 5 and it won't happen this year either. Earliest projection might be Tennessee at #10.

Some of these threads make some huge assumptions, most of which are bogus.

lolwut? No. No, he is not. Iupati is probably top ten, but most certainly is not THE top guy.

As for Womack, no. The days of top 5 guards are dead and gone. He'd have to be the best guard prospect of all time for that to happen now.

Yes it does

The Cardinals drafted Leonard Davis a guard #2 overall back in 2001- He went to 3 pro bowls and still is playing-

Chance Warmack is not a sexy pick- but he'll give a team 10 years of solid plays and a handful of pro bowls- he's that good- 3rd and 1? Run behind him

I'm not so sure why everybody blows off the guard position as not very important- It's those guys that gotta take on the top DT's that go in the top 3 picks every year- You gotta keep your QB upright, open holes for your RB- Chance Warmack does both of those very well- He's a very safe pick- A player that will pay immediate and long term dividends -5-7 years down the road- looking back at this draft- Warmack will one of maybe 3 guys in the first rd still playing at a high level- Theres a 25% success rate in the 1st rd- the odds arent good- take the safe pick- and this year, Warmack is not only the safe pick- but regarded as one of the top prospects in the draft- it don't get any safer than drafting him

You had to go back over a decade and revise history to find that example.

Davis was drafted to play OT. Arizona played him at guard his first three years because he wasn't that good at tackle, not because they drafted him to be a guard.

Gallery and Davis were drafted to be tackles...they were salvaged as guards because of the money that was owed to both men where they could not be cut clean. However, both Oakland and Arizona envisioned both men as their starting left tackles for years to come.

Leonard Davis was a college OT, drafted to be a NFL OT. He was moved to guard after struggles outside.

Iupati the best OG??? Nevermind.

IMO, Warmack's only legit shot of going in the top half of the 1st round is if the Rams selected him at #16. When the combine measurables come in this top 5-10 stuff will die down.

I think he'll be lucky to be top 20. Guards just don't go that high.

Yea remember the hype David DeCastro got last year as the best guard to come our in the last 10 to 15 years and people were talking about him going top 10 last year. What pick did he go at? 23rd to the Steelers. Warmack isn't going in the top 5 and he probably wont go in the top 10. The value just is not there for a player like him at those spots. Look for him to be drafted from 15-25 based on the lack of upper talent this year.

Interior offensive linemen just don't go very high. Recent drafts have been the exception, not the norm. Iupati, the Pouncey's, DeCastro, all were considered some of the best prospects at their respective positions in a while, and only one of them was top 15 (Mike Pouncey).

Every year there is a rumor about one of these talented interior O-linemen going higher, but it never happens. Maurkice Pouncey to Denver, Iupati to Oakland, and now Warmack. They are all talented players, but teams picking top 10 usually have more important needs than interior offensive linemen, who are some of the less important players on a team.

Interior offensive linemen in recent years:

2012
24. G David DeCastro, Steelers
27. G Kevin Zeitler, Bengals

2011
15. C Mike Pouncey, Dolphins
23. G Danny Watkins, Eagles

2010
17. G Mike Iupati, 49ers
18. C Maurkice Pouncey, Steelers

2009
21. C Alex Mack, Browns
28. C Eric Wood, Bills

2008
None (Brandon Albert was viewed as a guard, but ultimately played OT)

2007
29. G Ben Grubbs, Ravens

Again, only one guy went top 15. Looking at the top 5 teams this year, there is, IMO, no justifiable reason to take a guard over a QB, DE, OT, or whatever else it is they need. Passers, pass-protectors, and pass-rushers are the most important and most coveted players early in drafts, not guards.

The new salary structure impacts the draft quite a large bit, especially since you look at the top guards in the league and they are all commanding LT money.

Is it a reach? perhaps..... but not as unlikely as it would have been 2 years ago.

Evan Mathis is "easily" the top guard in the NFL, not Iupati. I know it's only one game, but it's kind of funny that you call Iupati the top guard in the league right after he got worked badly against the Falcons.

Gotta remember in this salary cap era, teams are also looking to save money. Guards are among the lower paid players in the league. That's why they don't typically go very high. Same goes for LB, TE. QB, DE/OLB, OT, CB, DT are what teams are looking for in Round 1. WR, RB, S are borderline... but there are cases where there are exceptions to the norm.

I think that's one possible explanation, but the seemingly more likely is that those positions have so much more value (and thus their higher price tag in FA) that you draft them higher.
