I'm interested to see how he does. Warford killed it at the Senior bowl and significantly improved his draft status. With that said, a lot of NFL teams place a big premium on combine numbers. He could solidify his stock, raise it, or lower it with the combine. With what he showed at the Senior bowl it may be beneficial to not compete in the combine unless he is sure that he can make a good showing.
Warford will do well in the combine and only further help his already skyrocketing stock. He ready to get paid!
Former Kentucky OG Larry Warford just ran a 5.53 40-yard dash in first attempt at NFL Combine.
I'm not overly familiar with 40 times for OL, however that seems slower for an NFL OG. Where does that stack up with his competition in the draft?
He was one of the slowest linemen (as far as 40 time) in the combine so far........but that doesn't mean much. The 10-yd split time for linemen is a better measure. So far Mayock, Davis, Billick, etc are giving Warford rave reviews.......even sometimes saying that he is the 2nd best guard in the draft. I wonder if he can sneak into the first rd?
He's already thought of by most as a sure-fire 2nd.....maybe early 3rd rd pick.

Thanks for the response, I figured there had to be another speed/quickness measurement for linemen that was more relevant. Would love for him to go in the first round. Not only for him, but also to give the announcers a reason to talk about UK football on live draft coverage would be invaluable!
40 time is worthless for an offensive lineman, but that is a slower time by standards.
Also, it looks really bad when you take it in context. Warford is running in the same group as tackles, centers, and long snappers. Usually all 3 of these positions are faster. If you were to look at what guards usually run the 40 in....they are usually slower.
Warford was dominate and the best conference in america against the best dlineman in the country. He will be a starting guard in the nfl for a long long time.
I was surprised by the 40 time. He always looked pretty fast for an Olinemen when he was running upfield leading the HB.
I wasn't. He's a little more of a road grader type of guard. He's got great technique and good strength but speed is not his strength.
you should have stopped before you got to offensive linemen. 40 times are the most over rated thing in football. many players never play at the timed speed , and some play all out who may be .3 or .4 behind (which is ever so slight)................i would take the guy who makes plays and gets the job done any day over someone with all the tangibles
40 times are for skill positions. Cb WR TE depending the offense. Most good teams go mainly by film.
look what kendall wright ran last year something like a 4.6 and he was still a first rounder because on his film he consistently got past cb. The 40 is a tool not exact science.
Here's the NFL.com page with all of Larry's results from today:
I like the sound of this from the link:
That size, strength, and those surprising nimble feet should help him nab a draft slot in the top half of the draft and step into a starting lineup at the next level immediately.
2. Larry Warford, OG, Kentucky: Warford disappointed by running a 5.58 40 and was extremely sluggish out of the blocks with a 1.92 10 yard split, the slowest of the day. His technique was sloppy and he looked uncomfortable athletically, which will likely lead to some scouts taking a closer look at film because he is viewed as such a second or third round prospect. His grade should not change based on a bad workout, but the workout should act as a red flag to make scouts/teams re-watch the film to make sure they have evaluated his on-field athleticism and production correctly.
Hey sometimes players can only perform on the field. Always thought he looked good at spring games and open practices though
