Duh?

Here you are saying that the fact that Warmack plays in the SEC differentiates himself from Warford, obviously implying that Warford does not play in the SEC;

Maybe give the athleticism edge to Warmack and the fact that he plays in the SEC, but other than that I see two pretty identical prospects.

I totally agree with you. I've been high on Warford for a while, and if we could somehow guarantee we'd get Warford in the 2nd I'd rather have him there than Warmack in the 1st.

When I compare Warmack and Warford from both tape and when I saw Warmack in person, I can tell you immediately that Warmack is the better athlete. I know he doesn't look it with his big belly and ill fitting jersey, but this guy is scary in person. I honestly would be happy with either and given the fact I believe Warmack will be gone by #14, I wouldn't be angry if we took Warford in the 2nd even though I think Warmack is that much better.

The main difference between the two is athleticism. Warmack is a much better pull blocker and gets to the second level much faster than Warford which would give us a lot of versatility given the pull blocking ability of both Silatolu and Kalil. On the flip side, we don't really need to have a superb athlete at RG, just a guy to create big holes and pass protect for Cam and our running game. Right now Warford is viewed as a late 2nd-early 3rd rounder, but I believe he'll rise to early to mid 2nd. Warford would certainly be the better value if he's available in the 2nd, but overall I could see Warmack as a LG or RG whilst I could only see Warford as a career RG.

I like this evaluation. Warford has a lot of power, but he doesn't have the speed, quickness, nor the fluidity of Warmack. Warford has trouble with quickly executed stunts, he's caught off guard and sometimes doesn't have the quickness to recover. Another problem is his quickness off the snap, sometimes the defender has engaged him before he has gotten into his stance, which leads to him getting beaten. I almost want to say he's out of gas at times and it's causing him to slow down. Warmack is better in pass protection, but in run blocking it's much closer. Slight edge to Warmack in run blocking, but not a huge difference.

the way you worded it bwood sounded like you only thought warmack played in the sec. thats just how it sounded whether you knew or not.....but yeah kentucky is one of the sorry teams in the sec...so you could miss them easliy if your team is not in the sec.

Holy mother of god I said that I worded it kind of weird, why is this still being talked about lol?

Anyone that watches college basketball knows the Ketucky is in the SEC.

Can you guys talk about the prospect or do y'all just wanna keep watching my every move so you can call me out? I swear, every fugging thread, people think I'm this bully or something but I literally can not post a thread without someone derailing it with something irrelevant.

cone drills and tape will tell us a lot.

the pulling guard will be critical in our running game.

    • You do realize no one wanted RyanCare/ObamaCare Lite to pass, right? If anything, the media and democrats has made themselves absolute fools lately. STILL no evidence Trump colluded with Russia whatsoever, which is quite the funny irony in this whole conspiracy. Trump inherited a mess. Hard to fix this mess when you got crybaby globalists and dems everywhere.    
    • I hate this DG analogy so much.  It only makes sense in the context of an efficient market where teams are rational, have perfect information, and scouts are always right about players.  But we have ample evidence that is not the case.  Sometimes, talented players just don't work out.  Injuries derail careers.  Teams make oddball picks.  Sometimes, you are just wrong about a player (see Ealy, Kony). I like him a lot, but DG's habit of always trading up / never trading down may ultimately be his downfall in CAR.  It results in a lack of depth across the roster and it makes your roster very vulnerable to i) injuries (see 2015 vs. 2016) and ii) missing on evals.  If we missed on Funchess (jury still out), that hurts - but missing on Funchess when you traded multiple picks to get him compounds the issue. Trading up and trading down are both valid strategies - but I'd suggest balancing the two strategies would improve your chances of long-term success.
