Lions selected Kentucky OG Larry Warford with the No. 65 overall pick.
A favorite of both NFL Network's Mike Mayock and Rotoworld's Josh Norris, Warford is a true road grader. The 6-foot-3, 332-pounder was a 38-game starter for the Wildcats and earned third-team All-America honors as a senior after not surrendering a single sack and only drawing two penalties. Though powerful with solid arm length (33 3/8"), Warford is short on athleticism (5.58 forty, 1.92 ten-yard split) and struggles when asked to execute second-level blocks. He's a phone-booth mauler. A game that stuck out on tape was Warford's manhandling of 360-pound John Jenkins in Kentucky-Georgia. He has an excellent chance to start at right guard come Week 1. Fri, Apr 26, 2013 08:47:00 PM

Kentucky G Larry Warford has visited six teams.

The Tennessee Titans, St. Louis Rams, Cleveland Browns, Carolina Panthers and Cincinnati Bengals are those teams, according to Tony Pauline. The draft insider added that he expects the hefty guard to be off the board by pick No. 45. The Kentucky product does not have great technique but moves fairly well for his size and is a powerful blocker.

Kentucky G Larry Warford completed a private workout for the Browns last week.

"The Browns are in the market for a guard partly because they are uncertain of Jason Pinkston’s status for next season," beat writer Nate Ulrich writes. Pro Football Weekly noted that Warford struggled with his weight in 2012. We think the mauling guard fits best in a power running offense.

Jonathan Bales of NBC Dallas/Fort Worth believes Kentucky G Larry Warford is a "prototypical Dallas interior offensive lineman."

However, he expects the Cowboys offense to "transition to seeking more athleticism from their guards, in which case Warford wouldn't be the answer." Bales adds that he expects Warford to be available with the Cowboys second-round pick, but doesn't believe the value is tremendous there.

The NFL Network's Bucky Brooks does not consider Kentucky's Larry Warford among the top-five best C or G in the 2013 class.

The top five includes: Alabama's Chance Warmack, UNC's Jonathan Cooper, Alabama's Barrett Jones, Syracuse's Justin Pugh, and Wisconsin's Travis Frederick. Warford won't fit all schemes because of his inability to consistently hit targets at the second level and his tendency to lean on opponents. But, the Wildcat's powerful blocking in the running game and grip in pass protection will be coveted.

The Sideline View's Lance Zierlein considers Kentucky G Larry Warford a solid second-round pick.

"One thing Warford needs to improve on is staying engaged while run blocking," Zierlein tweeted. "He leans too much at times which causes him to get off balance." Zielein adds that Warford won't fit a zone blocking scheme because of his inability to hit targets at the second level, but can be a powerful blocker in the running game.

ESPN's Mel Kiper calls Kentucky OG Larry Warford one of the most underrated prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft.

"He has been very underrated because he plays at Kentucky," Kiper said. "He’s big, athletic and he can move and pull. He’s another 330-pounder that plays with strength and leverage. To me, he’s a second- or third-round possibility." Warford will participate in this week's Senior Bowl, where Rotoworld's Josh Norris will be in attendance. Norris will have daily updates throughout the week.

Kentucky G Larry Warford will attend the Senior Bowl.

Warford is a massive blocker that wins despite technique and pad level issues. He doesn't have the textbook anchor, but Warford moves very well for his size and shows the motor to finish off plays with power.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang stated that there may not be "too much of a drop-off" after the big three G prospects and Kentucky senior Larry Warford.

Many consider the "big three" guards to be Alabama seniors Chance Warmack and Barrett Jones and UNC's Jonathan Cooper, but Rang warns not to forget about Warford. The Kentucky senior is "quick off the snap" and consistently sealed off Florida junior defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd, according to Rang, while showing nice mobility for such a large blocker.
