It’s hard to believe that someone that scary could ever be so helpless. Larry Warford has waited five months to find out where his future will take him and it hasn’t been easy, “I just get too nervous. I just want to find out. I could be on the other side of the coast, so just trying to wait and figure out who really wants me and where I’m going to end up.” The first offensive lineman to be drafted from UK since 1993, Warford is projected anywhere between the 2nd and 4th round, “[I’ve] probably talked to all of them. Worked out for four teams and visited a few. I just have to make one of them like me.”
The wait between the conclusion of college ball and draft day is the longer than any other major sport, giving players plenty of time to think about what will happen once their dreams come true. A dozen players will get the chance to walk across the stage tomorrow night at Radio City Music Hall, others will have parties with their family and friends, but Warford has something different in mind, “My dad wants me to come down and have a party with the family and all that but I kind of don’t want to do anything for it. I kind of just want to sit at my house and play video games.”
Whether Warford is playing video games or picking his nose this weekend, one thing is for sure, his lifelong dream will come true, “It’s still kind of like a dream…”It’s like, ‘whoa, I’m here now.’” You can catch all of the NFL Draft Madness on ESPN beginning tomorrow at 8:00 PM.
