Chance Warmack to visit the Cowboys
By Calvin Watkins
NFL teams are allowed 30 visits from prospective draft picks.
The Dallas Cowboys are still finalizing their list, but according to a source, the team has scheduled a visit for Alabama guard Chance Warmack.
ESPN NFL Draft expert, Mel Kiper projects Warmack to go to the Cowboys at No. 18 overall.
At Alabama's Pro Day on Wednesday, Warmack didn't lift, but based on reports, did a good job during positions drills.
"I'm athletic and trying to show what I can bring to the table if anybody wants to draft me," Warmack said in quotes released by Alabama. "I'm really excited to just get on a team and get started with football, but just to show what I can do and show what my strengths are."
Adding Warmack upgrades the Cowboys interior which struggled in 2012. Currently, the starters at guard are Nate Livings and Mackenzy Bernadeau and the center is Phil Costa.
There are several guards along with Warmack who are seeing their stock rise in the draft as a result of Pro Day and combine workouts.
"I'm really not paying attention to the stock thing so much as just trying to improve myself as a player," Warmack said. "I didn't get a chance to do much at the combine, so I wanted to prove to myself that I could do the drills here, and that's what I did. I'm happy I did it."
