Draft Scout Chance Warmack News
12/11/13 - G Chance Warmack has steadily improved at right guard after a rough beginning to the season.
07/31/13 - G Chance Warmack finally agreed to his rookie contract on Monday, making him the final pick in the first round to come to terms with his team.
Warmack signed a four-year contract worth just over $12 million with a reported fifth-year team option.
In a make-or-break season around the Titans camp, getting Warmack into camp, up to speed and installed as the starter at right guard is one of the imperative things of this preseason for coach Mike Munchak.
Munchak addressed Warmack's absence the day before he signed, noting how the missed time could hurt the rookie.
"Definitely (it) hurts him, especially as a young player. We've gotten a lot done in the last five days," Munchak said. "That's the hard part. It's hard on coaches. You have to spend a lot of time with him because he's missed so much, even though he's been through it one time. There's nothing like this kind of competition.
"There's stuff that went on today that the offensive line faced versus the defense. That's something that's hard to make up. ... He's good enough to play and help us right away, it just sets everything back."
Warmack's arrival should help to solidify a Titans offensive line that has been overhauled on the interior after a terrible season in 2012, thanks to injuries and ineffectiveness.
Warmack will be plugged in at the right guard spot, paired with free agent Andy Levitre at left guard, leaving the center position to be a three-way battle between incumbent Fernando Velasco, free-agent pickup Rob Turner and rookie fourth-round pick Brian Schwenkie, who could miss a few days with a hamstring injury.
Munchak, as a Hall of Fame offensive lineman in his playing days and a top-notch offensive line coach before becoming Tennessee's head coach in 2011, is counting on a solidified offensive line to jell quickly in camp and be the backbone of the Titans' hoped-for improvement in 2013.
Getting Warmack into camp is one of the final pieces toward putting that plan into
04/29/13 - A closer look at the Titans' picks: Round 1/10 - Chance Warmack, G, 6-2, 325, Alabama...The Titans had targeted Warmack for a while as a way to finishing fixing their offensive line, which was horrible last year. Warmack will step right in and start immediately at right guard. QUOTE TO NOTE: "It was like I was coming home. I feel like I'm coming to a super organization. It feels like family to me." - Titans first-round pick Chance Warmack on being drafted by Tennessee 10th overall. - The Sports Xchange
04/29/13 - Warmack's destiny was with Titans...Many of the mock drafts that came along naturally matched up Alabama guard Chance Warmack with the Tennessee Titans, who had the 10th pick in the draft. The Titans' offensive line was horrible last season, and even though they had signed Buffalo Bills free agent Andy Levitre to a $46 million free-agent package to play left guard, there still was a need to find a right guard.
With Warmack on the board, the Titans jumped at a player who made a great impression upon them not only on film and at the NFL Combine and his pro day, but also in a private workout that included head coach Mike Munchak and offensive line coach Bruce Matthews. "Bruce and I met him at the Combine, and we went down to Alabama to work him out and we got a chance to spend a lot of time with him," Munchak said. "We watched a lot of tape with him, which made us feel very comfortable with him. Even in the NFL, you don't see the kind of power he has, the ability to move the line of scrimmage. To me, he's the complete package. He loves the game and he has a passion for it." - The Sports Xchange
04/29/13 - It was interesting that when asked about that workout, Warmack revealed that three teams had actually asked for a private workout, but he consented only to work out for the Titans in front of Hall of Fame linemen Munchak and Matthews. "This is a dream come true. I was definitely thinking what would it be like if I played for Tennessee," Warmack said. "The o-line coaches, the fact that their running backs are great. You have a quarterback that can get the job done, run or pass and their style of play is physical - run first," the former Crimson Tide star said. "And it's three hours from my home." - The Sports Xchange
