Larry Warford, Detroit Lions

Warford was part of an offensive line that did not allow any sacks or quarterback hits, while blocking for a rushing attack that gained 145 yards in the Lions' 21-19 victory against the Chicago Bears.


Great to see him finally get some recognition, but I doubt he has a chance over Austin.

Nice. For the year, Warford >> Tavon Austin, but it's hard to argue who had a bigger impact this week.

I can't see him winning over Austin, but I voted for him.

I wonder when Waddle is going to start getting more recognition than just at PFF.

He has been amazing since taking over the starting job, but it's only been two starts and he has faced two beat up front 4s in the Cowboys and Bears. Warford still isn't getting very much recognition nationally because of the nature of the offensive line, so I doubt Waddle will get much more recognition until maybe the off season when people start trying to mock an OT to us because that's what they've always done.

I could see us moving Reiff to LG and taking a tackle... Sims isn't a world beater. Not that I would prioritize doing so, but I could see it if the right situation presents itself.

I wouldn't want to move Reiff to LG when he's doing so well at LT, but I wouldn't be opposed to drafting a 4th-7th round G to groom for a year or two

I can't see them doing that without taking a first round stud LT, and I can't see that happening. Even if it did, it would be more likely to slide Reiff to RT and move one of those guys to G. I don't think they should over think things right now. I'd rather then draft another guard than move Reiff.

The bolded is the only way I see it happening. I agree with you, but the way the staff has talked about Reiff in the past, I could see it. Maybe they've changed their mind.

I would move Reiff to LG for Jake Matthews or Seantrel Henderson. No one else.

Jon Halapio is still underrated as far as interior offensive lineman go. If we could get him in the 4th it would be a steal.

I think a lot of things have changed after how well this line has played together so far this year. It's been a very nice surprise.
