It’s not often a rookie guard makes an impact on a team in his first season. It seems Chance Warmack is doing just that.The Tennessee Titans are just fine with the fact that the rookie from Alabama is ready to take that next big leap toward NFL success and if the preseason and practice is any indication of how the 2013 will go, Warmack will have his name associated with some kind of award or hardware or maybe even a trip to Hawaii.Yes, he is that good.According to CBSsportsline.com and Rob Rang, Warmack’s debut against the Redskins last week, despite the loss, was a telling sign of things to come.“Throughout most of the game, however, Warmack demonstrated the unique talent that led to his being rated the top player in the 2013 draft by some veteran scouts. The Titans ran behind their rookie right guard early and often.”Yes, he was beaten on some plays, but all rookies are and while it is a learning process, Warmack more times than not has shown he can play solidly on the right side of the line after playing on the left in college at Alabama.The Titans over the years (also as the Houston Oilers) have been known for having solid offensive linemen on their roster, including the team’s current head coach, Mike Munchak. Bruce Matthews is also one of those players who helped make the Oilers/Titans line famous and a strength of the team.Warmack not only has a chance to do the same, but to be as good as another fellow guard from Alabama, John Hannah. If Warmack is half the player Hannah was then Titans will be set for the next decade.I have said that I thought in five years, Warmack would be the best lineman drafted in this draft pool. So far, he is proving my prediction right, But more importantly, he is proving the Titans made the right move to bring in the best prospect they could, while helping their offensive line at the same time.
