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.”
not missing it, i just don't believe they will go higher than around 20-24. so many teams need OT and DL help, plus you have 4-5 WR's who could go in round one and 3-4 QB's that will likely go round 1 due to need.
now with an insane combine and pro days that could change but history shows guards don't go very high.
