NFL Mock Draft 2013: Jets take Chance Warmack

New, 1 comment

New York needs a bevy of help, and getting a top notch guard would certainly help the cause.

The New York Jets have plenty of issues on both sides of the ball, making the No. 9 overall pick in the draft tough to peg. Our Dan Kadar takes his best shot, and feels the Jets will ultimately select guard Chance Warmack of the Alabama Crimson Tide.

Warmack was the best guard in college football last year by almost all accounts, showcasing his ability to dominate in a phonebooth and yet get out in space on a pull and dominate on the second level. It's tough to find 350 pounders who can run, but Warmack is such a man.

If New York takes Warmack, he would slot in on the left side to fortify that half of the line with Nick Mangold on his right and D'Brickashaw Ferguson on his left.

However, an outside linebacker who can rush the passer needs to be considered if someone like Barkevious Mingo or Dion Jordan is available when the Jets select.
