The three-time national champion as a member of the Crimson Tide
built a reputation as smart and instinctive and a rare blend of power
and athleticism at the guard position.

Warmack graduated early from high school and enrolled at Alabama in January 2009. After going through spring football, he served as a backup to Barrett Jones and played in 5 games as a true freshman. As a sophomore, Warmack replaced All-American Mike Johnson in the starting lineup and opened all 13 contests at left guard.

As a junior in 2011, he started 13 more games and helped Alabama win the 2012 BCS National Championship Game over LouisianaState, while earning 2nd team All-SEC honors. After weighing his options to enter the 2012 NFL Draft, Warmack decided to return to Alabama for his final year of eligibility. Prior to his senior season, he received numerous individual accolades, being on multiple preseason award watch lists and being named to Sports Illustrated’s preseason All-American team.

Warmack started all 13 games for the Crimson Tide as a senior.


Warmack was considered the best interior linemen available in the 2013 NFL Draft. ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay considered Warmack the best guard prospect he’s seen since Steve Hutchinson, who went 17th overall to the Seattle Seahawks in the 2001 NFL Draft. NFL Network analyst and NBC commentator Mike Mayock considered him the best football player in the draft. Not since Chris Naeole in 1997 has a guard been selected in the top-10 of an NFL draft, but Warmack was considered to have a chance. Warmack was indeed the 10th overall pick by the Tennessee Titans in the 2013 NFL Draft.
