Most incoming rookies keep close to the vest their preferred NFL destination.
Not Chance Warmack.
Via Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.com, the former Alabama blocker likes the idea of playing for the Titans, who hold the 10th overall pick in the draft.
“I’ve never been coached by an actual offensive lineman before,” Warmack said. “That alone will escalate my play to a phenomenal level. Most of my coaches played tight end. My offensive line coach in college played linebacker. They couldn’t really relate to what an offensive lineman does.
“They did a good job coaching me, but with [coach Mike Munchak and offensive line coach Bruce Matthews] it would be a whole ‘nother level of learning the position. I was more attracted to hearing those two guys being on the same team and to know that it was three hours away from my college. It would be like a dream come true for me.”
His dream of playing for a pair of Hall of Fame linemen hasn’t come true yet. And if he ends up being drafted by a team without a former offensive lineman coaching the offensive line, that first meeting could be a little awkward.
