LARRY WARFORD RUMORS

How does Larry Warford follow up on rookie success?

Larry Warford far exceeded expectations last year for a third-round draft pick. Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford threw a total of 634 passes, but not once was his rookie right guard responsible for giving up a sack in 16 games.

2013 Offensive Rookie of the Year Pick: Larry Warford
