With changes in defensive schemes, guards are worth increasingly more. Over the past few seasons we've seen more athletic interior lineman, in addition to more defensive ends moving inside on certain downs. Lawrence Taylor began the trend of pressure coming from the outside, particularly the blindside. But as blindside protection received increasingly more and more focus, defenses have started to exploit other parts of the line.

Overall, interior blockers are still less valuable than tackles. That being said, their value is increasing, and its worth the pick if the guard is a player of Warmack's caliber.

I've made this argument last year. That the OG position no matter who it is shouldn't be a top 10 to 15 pick. The top 10 guards have more latter round picks then 1st 2 round picks. Nicks and Evans are 2 of the best at their position and were 4th and 5th round picks. My question is when was, the last time a guard was taken in the top 15?

2008.

15. Kansas City (From Lions)- Branden Albert, G Virginia

Albert was the first guard taken in the draft, as well as the second Virginia Cavalier (behind No. 2 pick Chris Long). He was the highest selected guard since Chris Naeole went 10th overall to the New Orleans Saints in the 1997 NFL Draft.

To me, no. You can find good Guards in the 3rd and 4th rounds in any given year. How often does a LT fall there? A shutdown CB? A QB? A Stud, pass-rushing DE? A #1 WR?

I think you draft the above players in the first round if possible and find a G later. While G is important, most teams drafting in the top 16 do not usually go into draft day saying, "Damn. If we only had a great G...."

Drafting Warmack is a luxury in the first round.

We need a #1 WR, possibly a LT, and a shutdown CB. They should come first.
