Predicting the Lions 53 Man Roster: Offense

Offensive Line (8) Right Guard Larry Warford The Lions will likely only keep eight Offensive Lineman on their final roster much like they have in the past several seasons. I would say that seven of the eight are locked in right now, with the final spot still up for grabs. There is also a decent possibility that final spot will be occupied by a post cut down signing, as there really...

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.
