Titans use first-round pick on Alabama OG Warmack

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Titans have continued the reconstruction of their offensive line by selecting Alabama guard Chance Warmack with the 10th overall pick in the NFL draft.

Warmack, who is 6-foot-2 and 317 pounds, played on three national championship teams at Alabama and started on the 2011 and 2012 title-winning squads. He was a unanimous first-team All-America selection last season and graded at 90 percent or better in eight games.

Tennessee already boosted its offensive line by signing free-agent guard Andy Levitre from the Buffalo Bills to a six-year, $46.8 million contract. The Titans are hoping that improving the interior portion of their offensive line can create more running room for Chris Johnson and provide more protection for quarterback Jake Locker.
