2013 NFL Mock Draft: Steelers choose Chance Warmack

Kevin C. Cox

The Pittsburgh Steelers have plenty of needs heading into the 2013 NFL Draft.

It was a disappointing 2012 campaign for the Pittsburgh Steelers, finishing 8-8 and missing out on the playoffs.

However, the team was hit hard by injuries this season, with the most notable injuries being suffered by Ben Roethlisberger and Troy Polamalu.

Pittsburgh is undoubtedly an aging group with holes, and drafttek.com has them filling one with the selection of Alabama Crimson Tide guard Chance Warmack.

Warmack is without question the best guard in the draft and would immediately start. It would be the second time in as many years the Steelers have gone with the best guard available in the first round after nabbing David DeCastro out of Stanford.

Warmack is a mountain of a man at 320 pounds, and one of the best run-blocking guards to come out in recent years. He's also solid in pass protection, giving Roethlisberger a little extra time to throw.

Should the Steelers choose Warmack, they would have a very young offensive line with Marcus Gilbert, DeCastro, Maurkice Pouncey, Warmack and Mike Adams.
