NFL Mock Draft 2013: Cowboys target Chance Warmack with first round pick

The Cowboys will look to address their interior offensive line in the 2013 NFL Draft, according to SB Nation's latest mock draft.

The Dallas Cowboys definitely have talent, but the offense broke down at times behind an offensive line that wasn't particularly sturdy protecting Tony Romo nor paving the way for the running backs. They will look to remedy that situation in the 2013 NFL Draft if SB Nation's latest mock draft is any indication.

With the No. 18 overall pick in the NFL Draft, Matthew Fairburn projects the Cowboys to select Alabama offensive guard Chance Warmack.

The Cowboys' offensive line really hindered them last season. Tony Romo did his best to escape from behind the constant pressure from opposing defenses, but the interior of Dallas' offensive line needs an upgrade. Enter Chance Warmack, the best offensive guard in the draft.

Warmack has spent time in the Top 10 in various mock drafts, so there is no denying his talent. Given he doesn't have the versatility to slide over to tackle, Warmack must have some serious bona fides to earn consistently high draft grades. Indeed, at 6'2, 294 pounds, Warmack is incredibly strong, smooth and technically sound. There may not be many safer picks in the 2013 NFL Draft class, especially for a team with such a clear need along the interior.
