Warmack was considered the best interior linemen available in the 2013 NFL Draft.[8][9] ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay considered Warmack the best guard prospect he’s seen since Steve Hutchinson, who went 17th overall to the Seattle Seahawks in the 2001 NFL Draft.[10] NFL Network analyst and NBC commentator Mike Mayock considered him the best football player in the draft.[11] Not since Chris Naeole in 1997 has a guard been selected in the top-10 of an NFL draft, but Warmack was considered to have a chance.[12]

Tennessee TitansEdit

Warmack was selected in the first round as the 10th overall pick by the Tennessee Titans in the 2013 NFL Draft, becoming the second guard picked in the draft, behind Jonathan Cooper.[13] Cooper and Warmack became the first guards to be selected in the top-10 of the same draft since Dave Cadigan and Eric Moore in 1988.
