It shouldn’t be any surprise that Chance Warmack is the #1 OG on the list. You’ll also notice that he’s the #1 ranked player on my board, one of the only players who’s position is already set. He wont go #1 overall, or even in the top 10 in the draft because guards simply aren’t valued that way.Warmack is special, even more so that Decastro was a year ago. Whatever team gets him is getting a Steve Hutchinson type dominant player at the position.
The Seahawks don’t need a guard. They have 5 and a half (the half is backup C Lemuel Jeanpierre who started at RG for parts of 2011) on the roster and all but the half are likely to make the 53 man roster in 2013. If they do take one, it’ll be a late round player like Chadron State’s Garrett Gilkey
