#67 Larry Warford, OG, Kentucky HGT: 6-3 WGT: 333 Larry Warford appeared in 47 games in his career at Kentucky, with 37 starts. Warford was named to the 3rd team All-American team by AP as a senior. Earned 2nd team All-SEC in 2010, 2011 and 2012. In 2009 he was named to the SEC All-Freshman team. Was a Senior Bowl invite and really stood out during the entire week in Mobile.  PROS: Warford has good size for an interior offensive lineman. Sneaky athlete, that displays good body control and shows agility. Consistently keeps a good base. Plays with all around power. Has a good get off and surge off the ball, that allows him to knock defenders off the ball. Plays with a nasty demeanor. Shows he can reach wide shaded defenders with good footwork and quick feet. Does a great job delivering a violent blow and overall hand placement. Latches to control defenders. Shows the ability to be an effective puller. Executes blocks in space. Works well with Center on combo blocks and knows when to come off on second- level defenders. Takes good angles to the 2nd level when uncovered. Looks comfortable in pass-protection. Mixes up his pass-sets based on who he is playing against. Most effective when he uses his quick set. Delivers a solid punch. Shows he can anchor against the bull rush. Does a good job taking away the inside with a solid post foot and inside hand. Is able to mirror defenders. Points out blitz/ stunts. CONS: Larry Warford’s biggest knock has been his conditioning late in games. Warford will need to keep his weight in check, this will help his stamina/conditioning. At times plays to high, must continue to improve knee bend/pad level. Needs to be more patient in pass protection, at times gets over aggressive and drops his head and lunges at defenders.  NOTES: Larry Warford is one of the least talked about offensive linemen coming out of the SEC, but he may be the most technically complete interior lineman in this year’s class. Warfords skill-set paired with his power and size will make him a very hot commodity for teams looking to upgrade their interior.
