NFL mock draft: Jets select Chance Warmack

New York has needs all over the field, so taking the best player available makes plenty of sense.

USA TODAY Sports

In SB Nation's latest mock draft by Dan Kadar, the New York Jets use the ninth overall selection to fill a glaring need with Alabama Crimson Tide guard Chance Warmack.

Warmack might be the most polished offensive lineman in the entire draft and comes from a great program, evidenced by their three national championships in four years.

New York has had issues on the offensive front and now with the possible loss of Brandon Moore to free agency, the need to stem the tide is greater than ever.

At 320 pounds, Warmack is a punishing run blocker who will blow open holes on a consistent basis. Despite his size, Warmack is also quick, giving him the ability to reach linebackers on the second level.

It's going to likely be a tough season regardless of who the Jets take with their first pick, but Warmack provides a nice building block to put next to Pro Bowl center Nick Mangold.
