ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay, the counter-point to Mel Kiper’s point, confirms what we had been hearing all week out of the great state of Alabama, UK offensive guard Larry Warford’s draft stock has gone through the roof thanks to his stellar showing at the Senior Bowl.
Espn.com’s Chris Low did a post this morning reviewing the SEC highlights from the week in Mobile:
Florida running back Mike Gillislee and Kentucky guard Larry Warford also helped their draft stock with strong performances during the week, according to McShay. Gillislee impressed with his instincts and quickness, while Warford further established himself as one of the top guards in the draft.
Remember, Kentucky has not had an offensive lineman drafted since 1993 when Todd Perry was drafted by the Chicago Bears in the fourth round.
A Richmond native who played at Madison Central, Warford has been projected as a second- or third-round pick.
