the key issue you guys keep missing. i said guards, not interior linemen.
i mean guys who were taken as guards and played guard.
Of course his versitility improved his draft stock.
I think the thing you are missing is guys like Maylock and Todd McShay are calling both Cooper and Warmack elite prospects in a draft that is missing elite players at other postions.
“We’ve got two guards this year that are just in the elite category,” ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay said. “You don’t see guys like Chance Warmack and Jonathan Cooper come around very often.”
“To be honest with you, there are two beautiful players sitting there,” NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock said. “I mean, Chance Warmack from Alabama is the best football player I saw on tape this year. And Jonathan Cooper from North Carolina is just a tiny notch behind him.
“I could care less about whether or not that's a position of value or not.”
