Strengths

  • He’s a big, dominant lineman. He can outmuscle any defensive lineman and is a mauler in the run game.

“Warmack is big, strong and controls everything he gets his hands on. He’s effective at the line of scrimmage or at the second level blocking in motion.” (Tony Pauline – SI.com)

  • Like Pauline noted, Warmack can also get to the second level and lock on linebackers. He can pull from his guard position to the outside and make key blocks in open space.
  • He has a large reach, which also helps him make secondary blocks in the run game.
  • Very reliable pass blocker. Doesn’t give up very many easy sacks.
  • Team leader. Captained Alabama to two national championships, demands respect from teammates and the media.

Weaknesses

  • A little short at 6’2″. Not too big of a knock but it’s a weakness.
  • Not very versatile; strictly a guard prospect.

Should the Eagles draft him?

Warmack is a mauler (via Blogspot).

Chance Warmack is considered one of the best guard prospects in the past two decades, right up there with Steve Hutchinson and Steve Everitt. Oh, and the Eagles happen to be on the lookout for a right guard to stand next to offensive tackle Todd Herremans. Warmack is considered to be one of the few sure-fire All-Pros in this draft, and thus has to be given due consideration when the Eagles’ pick at No. 4.

A lot of people want the Eagles to draft an OT for two reasons: 1) guards aren’t worthy of No. 4 picks, they say and 2) they want Todd Herremans to slide back to his previous guard position. No. 2 is unlikely because the Eagles are paying Herremans to be an OT, not a guard. The first one doesn’t make sense; Warmack is a Pro Bowler for sure, why pass that up with the 4th pick when the Eagles have swung and missed so many times!

While Geno Smith, Dee Milliner and Shariff Floyd certainly deserve consideration, Warmack will be high on the Eagles board when it’s their turn to pick. He’d be a great addition to an offensive line that has three starters returning from injury.
