Congrats on getting the best pick in this draft when considering value/skill/need altogether.

Warford isn't far off at all from Warmack/Cooper. He's got all-pro potential.


100% agreed!!! Hell yeah Larry!

Like many others I wanted Warford at #36 so, to see him selected in the 3rd... Applause

I didn't really want Warford in the 2rd. I really felt it was early for him and still liked way too many players more than him.

By the time the 3rd came around I was all but begging for him though.

Not a fan of Warford at all, but its at least an upgrade and good value based on where he was projected. Solid in pass pro, but poor athleticism and balance. Mediocre at the second level, struggles to hit moving targets and ends up on the ground more than any other OL I scouted.

At the senior bowl they said he was e most agile O lineman. They say his strengths are his ability to get to the second level and he should be very helpful on screens. So not sure what you saw, but I and many others saw different.

He is agile, good short area burst. Have to be able to hit the targets when you get there and he struggled. Couldn't latch onto Ogletree to save his life. Likes to lunge/cut when he's in space and doesn't have the body control to be effective playing that way.

So would you say he has some shortcomings consistent with a 3rd pick? And that it may be possible he was available to us in the 3rd due to those shortcomings?

In three seasons as the starting right guard, he led the SEC interior blockers with an 88.47 percent grade for blocking consistency, as he registered 36 touchdown-resulting blocks and 125 knockdowns.

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.

Nice find.

Well it seems as if 98% of us are in-love with this pick. He's a guy I've always coveted, just didn't see him on the same level as Warmack and Cooper. That's no knock on him though, I believe those two are two of the top #5 guard prospects in the past 20 years.

Something to think about though, Warmack played in the same conference as him but he played in arguably the premier OL in D1 football with multiple coveted OL prospects beside him whereas Warford WAS the Kentucky OL and basically made them what there were on the ground and put up those numbers. Do you think that they maybe closer then some think but since Warmack played on Bama he is just more well known and visible compared to Warford or do you truly believe he is simply better ?

The film proves that Warmack was just that good. Is he THAT much better than Warford? We will not know for a while but let's just count our lucky stars that the Lions were able to snag him where they did.
