#TitansDraft Flashback: Chance Warmack & Justin Hunter Lead Class of 2013

Posted May 7, 2014


NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Titans’ 2013 draft was highlighted by guard Chance Warmack as the first player ever drafted from the 10th spot in Titans/Oilers franchise history and an aggressive trade in the second round to land receiver Justin Hunter.

Many analysts projected the Titans would pick Warmack as Tennessee was rebuilding the interior of the offensive line, but general manager Ruston Webster surprised some with the trade to move up six spots and take Hunter 34th overall. Titans scouts highly graded the former University of Tennessee standout and sent 2013 second and seventh-round picks and a 2014 third-round selection to San Francisco.

Warmack started all 16 games at right guard and didn’t miss a snap during his rookie season, and Hunter had 18 catches for 354 yards and four touchdowns. Hunter’s first two career catches were TDs, including the game-winner against San Diego in Week 3, and he led the Titans with 19.7 yards per catch.

The other six players the Titans selected in 2013 are preparing for their second season with the club, including fourth-round pick Brian Schwenke, who became the starting center after working past a training camp injury.

Blidi Wreh-Wilson, Zaviar Gooden, Lavar Edwards and Daimion Stafford played special teams and could see their roles on defense grow in 2014. Sixth-rounder Khalid Wooten spent most of his rookie year on the practice squad. Wreh-Wilson and Wooten added size and depth at the cornerback position, Gooden added speed at linebacker, Edwards added size to the defensive line and Stafford added depth at safety.

The Titans have drafted an offensive player in the first round in the past three drafts and in five of the past six, including Kendall Wright in 2012 and Jake Locker in 2011. Click here for recaps of Titans/Oilers drafts from 1993-2012.
