Tennessee Titans 2013 NFL Draft Review

Chance Warmack

Chance Warmack is a powerful and explosive guard who will match up with free agent pickup Andy Levitre to solidify the inside of the Titans’ line. The burly Alabama alum plays with a stout base and a boxer’s punch. A knee bender with long arms, thick body and good balance, he can stone a bull rush or slide shuffle an inside speed rusher. Justin Hunter made some strong catches in the rookie mini camp. The Titans are looking for him to compete for the third receiver position and give Jake Locker another big target. He has not been able to participate in OTAs because of a hamstring injury and won’t be available until training camp. Hunter is missing out on working against defenses, on the field adjustments, and seeing coverages. Blidi Wreh-Wilson looked smooth in his backpedal in camp and demonstrated good footwork and hands. He will provide competition to Alterraun Verner at right corner. Not afraid to play tight coverage, he shows little wasted motion. He is fluid showing the ability to mirror cuts. Wreh-Wilson closes quickly on the ball with no hesitation and should contribute on special teams’ coverage. Zaviar Gooden is backing up last year’s second round pick, Zach Brown, who had a productive rookie year. He is a good athlete who is more of a cover nickel linebacker than a stay and stack run stuffing linebacker. He has sideline to sideline speed and range and can run with backs and tight ends. In the run game he is inconsistent by taking on blockers then shedding. Center Brian Schwenke was targeted by the Titans in hopes they would find their new Kevin Mawae. In camp he has shown good leadership ability and is a take charge guy in the words of Mike Munchak. He plays with presence, physical play, and confidence. He’s a good athlete with positive foot quickness and body control. Aggressive off the snap, he plays with attitude and effort. Lavar Edwards has good size, arm length, and strong hands to control the blocker. He will compete with Derrick Morgan at left defensive end. A better run stuffer than a pass rusher, he is athletic in space and has explosive first step quickness. Khalid Wooten is a good sized, long armed productive corner from Nevada who can run. He has good football intelligence and is physically strong. Wooten has all the tools and skill set to play on Sundays. Pro development is needed as a corner, but he will also contribute as a punt returner. Daimion Stafford is a physical downhill run stuffing alley type safety. He has good range and anticipation. Stafford is aggressive and plays with confidence; however he must be more disciplined in coverage. He takes a lot of chances. He possesses good ball skills and will upgrade both size and speed at the safety position. GRADE: ABOVE AVERAGE.
