2013 NFL Draft: Lions host Chance Warmack for visit

USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions brought in Alabama offensive guard Chance Warmack for a pre-draft visit on Monday.

It turns out Dee Milliner wasn't the only former Alabama player visiting the Detroit Lions on Monday. Offensive guard Chance Warmack, who was teammates with Milliner at Alabama, also visited the Lions on Monday.

Warmack is the second offensive lineman known to have visited the Lions before the draft, and he is the first offensive guard. Central Michigan offensive tackle Eric Fisher visited the Lions last month, and now they've brought in another candidate for the No. 5 overall pick with Warmack stopping by their facility in Allen Park.

Warmack is an intriguing prospect because he plays offensive guard. He has been mentioned by Mike Mayock as the best player in this year's draft, but because he plays guard, he probably isn't going to be a top-five pick.

We shouldn't automatically rule Warmack out as an option for the Lions, though. If the top tackles, Dee Milliner and Ezekiel Ansah are all gone by No. 5, the Lions could decide they want to go O-line by taking Warmack. He could also be an option if they manage to trade down. No, he's not a tackle, but he would be a big upgrade at right guard and give the Lions' O-line a huge boost.
