12. OG Chance Warmack, 10th Pick in 2013 Draft
Of all the big first round busts on this list, Chance Warmack is the most recent, and therefore, the most painful for Titans fans. Guards typically aren’t selected in the first round, let alone the first ten picks because they have a lower impact on the team as a whole. If you have a bad quarterback, your offense will tank. If you have a bad receiving corps (like the Titans in 2015), your offense will suffer as a result. If you have bad guard play, a team can typically make do (case in point, the Seattle Seahawks). Thus, when the Titans selected Warmack at 10th out of Alabama, more than a few eyebrows were raised.
Coming out of Alabama, Warmack was described by NFL.com as “an elite talent” with “dominant strength”. Labeled by many as a “sure thing” coming out of college, Warmack struggled to adjust to NFL pass blocking schemes and his dominant collegiate run-blocking never really translated. Early in 2016, Warmack was placed on injured reserve with a hand injury and was never able to earn his spot back after Quinton Spain and Josh Kline cemented their spots along the line. Warmack has since moved on to the Philadelphia Eagles and looks to regain a starting spot along their line.
