I agree that Warmack would be a safe choice, and has the potential to be an elite guard, I just have a problem giving so much money and investing so much in the OG position, especially with so much money invested in Mangold and Ferguson, and our needs at the skill positions and potentially again at QB.
I'm torn with what the team should do, I need to see how things play out in FA.
It's crucial that we get an impact guy at #9.
And if you look at the contributions that guys like Carl Nicks, Mike Iupati, Marshall Yanda and Logan Mankins make to their respective teams, then it's clear that this whole "no interior OL in the Top 10" is an outdated philosophy grounded in ignorance.
There is no safer prospect in this draft than Warmack. Plug him in between Brick and Mangold and you have what could very well be the most dominant leftside OL in football. And I mean right away, not 2-3 years down the road.
Warmack doesn't just have pro-bowl ability. This guy could very well be in Canton 15 years from now. Hell, most people fully expect him to be.
Passrushers like Ansah and Mingo are risky, boom or bust type prospects.
I say go with the closest to a sure thing that there is in this draft.
This team needs to get back to what made us successful, wearing on teams and pushing them around in the 4th quarter.
