He also has six tackles for loss, four sacks, two interceptions, two pass breakups, one recovered fumble and a forced fumble. Mosley's three career interception returns for touchdowns also tie an Alabama record.  

Warmack is from Atlanta, Ga., and has developed into one of the nation's top offensive linemen as a senior. He has started 38 games at the Capstone over the last three years. Warmack was a two-time SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week in 2012 and has missed only six assignments in 657 snaps (99.1 percent).
