McShay's latest mock has the Titans passing on Warmack for Cooper. That would be, in a word, a HUGE mistake.
Todd McShay of ESPN has released a new mock draft (In$ider) and he has the Titans taking Jonathan Cooper, OG, UNC with Chance Warmack still on the board. Obviously I am biased because Warmack went to Bama, just wanted to get that out of the way, but this would be a big mistake. Warmack is the dominant, nasty player that the Titans desperately need inside.
Here was McShay's "analysis"
This is a zone-blocking group under coordinator Dowell Loggains. Alabama guard Chance Warmack is athletic enough, and he played in a heavy zone-blocking scheme at Alabama. He absolutely fits the bill and would be a great pick for the Titans.
But Cooper is the more explosive athlete and might be a slightly better fit for what the Titans are looking for. Either way, they will be in great shape if they draft one of these two exceptionally gifted guards at No. 10. (Guards in the top 10? I can't believe I just wrote that. …)
Also, everyone, EVERYONE knows that the best lineman (offensive and defensive) come from the SEC.
