If Larry Warford is right, it won’t be 20 years before another Kentucky offensive lineman is picked in the NFL draft like it had been when the Detroit Lions took him in the third round this year.
“Yeah I’m hoping. We’ve got a lot of good guys on the offensive line this year. We had a lot of young guys (last season) and we had to throw them in the fire right away because we were pretty thin on the offensive line,” said Warford. “With them gaining that experience it’s going to make them great players.
“Darrian (Miller) is going to be really good. Zach Myers and Zach West, I saw those guys play and they are going to be good ones, so I’m hoping that I won’t be the last one for a while and I believe they can change that for sure.”
Warford almost wishes he was still at UK after what he saw at the Blue-White Game.
“When I walked into the spring game I was in shock. I have never seen that before. I wanted to jump back on the field with them and wanted to be out there with those guys in that excitement,” Warford said. “Coach Stoops has been doing a great job in getting people back in the program again and doing a great job with the excitement of the team.
“I go out to practice and talk to the guys and they are so energetic about it and so excited about what is to come. That plays a big role into how well they will do this season because if you are excited about it then it makes you want to learn and want to be better. Coach Stoops has been doing a great job about that and I am excited for them.”
