2013 NFL Draft Rankings | Offensive Guards 


NFL spectators truly generally dismiss the guard position as being vital to an offensive line that moves in unison.

Having players like Jahri Evans, Ben Grubbs, Carl Nicks, and Davin Joseph makes rushing lanes a lot easier for their respective backs.

Here are the top offensive guards for the 2013 NFL Draft.

1. Chance Warmack, Alabama

Absolute monster of a mauler. Easily one of the top ten players in the entire 2013 NFL Draft.

2. Jonathan Cooper, North Carolina

Balanced blocker with big upside. Potential top 15 pick with his ability to get to the second level.

3. Larry Warford, Kentucky

Huge frame that allows him to take on the biggest defensive tackles with ease.

4. Brian Winters, Kent State

Finesse blocker that needs better footwork. Still a top guard that should start in his first season.

Very underrated pass blocking guard that would fit well on the left side of the line.
