And to say that it's impossible for us to find an impact passrusher outside of the 1st round is beyond retarded. The Ravens took Paul Kruger in the 3rd round three years ago, how's that working out? How about the Texans with Connor Barwin? The Steelers with Lamar Woodley?
So yeah, I'll take a sure thing like Warmack and someone like Brandon Jenkins or Alex Okafor in the 2nd/3rd round over some total tossup like Ansah or Mingo and a guard that can't even carry Warmack's jock.
Prospects like Warmack come along every 15-20 years. Guys like Ansah and Mingo come along every single draft.
So Warmack is now a once in a generation guard prospect? Well, I guess to draft him at #9 he'd have to be, considering the last two guards drafted in the top 10 were in 1997 and in 1986.
We need a pass rushing stud. We don't need a stud at guard. That's why I'm against drafting Warmack... especially at #9.
