Chance Warmack Gets Abused by J.J. Watt

This is not what you want to see from a guy that was picked 10th overall in the draft.

The Titans spent the 10th overall pick in the 2013 draft on Chance Warmack. That is considered pretty high for a guard, but the pick made sense for the Titans because of the need at guard, and because Warmack was a "can't miss prospect."

Well guess what, through 24 games of Warmack's career, he has been anything but "can't miss." Take a look at this play from yesterday's game:

That was the Titans 2-point conversion attempt after Delanie Walker's touchdown reception. The play never had a chance because Warmack ole'd J.J. Watt and then helped him make the tackle when he jumped on Bishop Sankey.

The Titans have to face the Texans and Watt two times a year. That is a big part of the reason the Titans took Warmack with the 10th pick. The thinking was adding Warmack would mitigate the Watt factor and give the Titans a better chance (no pun intended) in the AFC South.

Forget Watt, Warmack struggles against guys that aren't even that good. He has no prayer against Watt, and that is a large part of why this team is where they are today. They have missed on so many picks at the top of the draft. You can only do that for so long before you have a long run of terrible- like the Titans are experiencing right now.

There is still time for Warmack to turn it around, but that clock is really starting to expire.
