Offensive linemen, for the most part, labor in obscurity. They're noticed mostly when they jump offisides or give up a sack. Barrett Jones is the most popular player on Alabama's offensive line. But the best pro prospect may be Chance Warmack. It's an injustice Warmack isn't more widely known. Not because of his ability alone, but because he wears his jersey in a manner that should be mandatory for all linemen. Behold:
By the way, that second photo I took from a site called The Man Board. Appropriate? I'd say so.
Of course, anybody can look good in the game. But Chance Warmack gives 100 percent in practice too. .
And it's not just how he wears his jersey. Chance Warmack is a smooth character even with a covered mid-riff.
Here's Bama S&C coach Scott Cochran received an emergency testosterone transfusion. He made a full recovery.
It's not every day you get a photo op with the President. You need someone you can trust to take a good picture. There's nobody better then Chance Warmack.
Bama gets knocked, or praised depending on how you take it, for playing like automatons under Saban. It's not really undeserved. But on the offensive line, there is at least one piece of sweaty, hanging, glorious individuality proudly protruding between the plain crimson jersey and white pants. You can have Johnny Football, Manti Te'o, or pretty much anybody else. There's no one more outstanding than Chance Warmack. I'm glad I get to see him one more time.
