Nashvillians are thrilled about the billboards across the country that scream out, “Nashville.” It doesn’t matter that the billboards are ads for the ABC television show, says Mary Beth Ikard of the Nashville Metropolitan Planning Organization. The publicity will do the area good. Nashville is known for its music industry — country, pop, gospel and rock — which has pumped billions of dollars into the local economy. Nissan Motor Co.’s headquarters are here. The health-care industry is also a big employer, as are publishers including Thomas Nelson Inc., a major Bible printer. Unemployment is relatively low at 6.4 percent. In 2012 the population was 1.7 million people.

Tennessee Titans Select Alabama G Chance Warmack

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Titans continued to upgrade their offensive line this offseason, selecting University of Alabama guard Chance Warmack with the 10th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

The 6-foot-2, 317-pound Warmack was widely considered the top guard and one of the top overall players in this year’s draft class.

Warmack joins former Buffalo Bills guard Andy Levitre as likely starters on Tennessee’s revamped offensive line.

Warmack appeared in 45 games for Alabama, starting his final 40 contests at left offensive guard after appearing in his first five college games as a reserve right guard. He produced 49 touchdown-resulting blocks while clearing rush lanes for individual ball carriers that recorded 25 100-yard performances during Warmack’s time in the starting lineup. He Also recorded 316 key blocks/knockdowns for the Tide.

Warmack was an unanimous first-team All-American and first-team SEC selection in 2012. He was penalized just twice on 805 offensive plays, pacing a veteran-filled front wall with 37 pancakes, a total of 128 knockdowns/key blocks and 19 touchdown-resulting blocks, as the Lombardi Award (top lineman or linebacker) quarterfinalist allowed just 3.5 of the 23 sacks yielded by the front wall (Tide ranked 46th nationally with an average of 1.64 sacks allowed per game) on 315 pass plays.

The two-time SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week (vs. Arkansas and Mississippi State) and three-time Alabama Offensive Player of the Week (also vs. Auburn) blocked for 10 100-yard rushing performances this season and 25 in his career, as he helped open holes for a rushing offense that ranked 16th in the nation with an average of 227.5 yards per game, in addition to paving the way for the Tide to generate 445.5 yards per game in total offense.
