2013 NFL Draft results: Lions pick Larry Warford

USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions have selected Larry Warford with the 65th overall pick of the 2013 NFL Draft.

In the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft, with the 65th overall pick, the Detroit Lions selected Kentucky offensive guard Larry Warford. Like first-round pick Ezekiel Ansah, Warford played for the Lions-coached South team in the 2013 Senior Bowl earlier this year.

With the Lions going O-line, Warford projects to be the favorite to start at right guard for the Lions in 2013. The Lions needed help at that position after releasing Stephen Peterman earlier this offseason, and Warford should provide a big boost to their offensive line. (Peterman, by the way, just signed with the New York Jets.)

At Kentucky, Warford started his final 37 games with the Wildcats. According to CBS Sports, he didn't allow a single sack in 2012, and he was named to the AP All-America third team. Considering he's coming from the SEC, he should be prepared to immediately play at the next level.

Following the Warford pick, the Lions are done for the second day of the draft unless they make a trade. They will be back on the clock on Saturday with the 132nd overall pick.
