Larry Warford fitting in with Lions' O-line on and off field

Detroit Lions rookie Larry Warford has quickly become comfortable with his teammates on the offensive line.

Chemistry is very important for offensive linemen. If players aren't on the same page, bad things can happen. Considering the Detroit Lions are welcoming three new offensive linemen to their starting lineup this year, this has been an important offseason in terms of building chemistry.

Especially for rookie offensive guard Larry Warford, it's been important for him to get on the same page as his teammates on the offensive line. He is expected to start at right guard, and the Lions need him to make a quick transition from college to the NFL. Luckily, that transition seems to be going quite smoothly, as Warford is fitting in quite well with his fellow offensive linemen both on and off the field. From the Lions' official site:

"In general, I find that all offensive linemen are the same, they have a lot of the same interests," he said. "We all get along really well and that makes things so much easier for us.

"Rob (Sims) has really been there for me as far as stuff away from football. I went to his house to watch the game, hang out, play pool. I went fishing with Jason (Fox) and Riley (Reiff)."

Warford also mentioned that it's nice to have veterans like Rob Sims and Dominic Raiola around since "they can help you anytime you need it." Warford is able to go to them with questions, which in turn has helped him become more comfortable on the field.
