Former Wildcats guard Larry Warford added to Pro Bowl

What a season the big guy had in the Big Easy.

Offensive guard Larry Warford, a former Wildcat, was named to the 2020 Pro Bowl.

He was the Saints’ 11th player added, a franchise record. A fantastic season for New Orleans ended in disappointment as the team’s offensive line was largely blamed for their loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

Coming out of Kentucky in 2013, Warford was originally drafted by the Detroit Lions. The 6-foot-3 guard spent four seasons in Motor City before taking his talent down south, linking up with Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints.

Warford was a dominant guard and quite impactful on the Saints’ stellar 13-3 season. It was Warford’s consistency that impressed most people. He played every offensive snap in all but one game.

This will be third-straight Pro Bowl that Warford will be a part of, making the roster every season with New Orleans.

The Pro Bowl will be on January 26 in Orlando, Florida, which will ironically not be too far from Warford’s home in New Orleans. The game will be played on ESPN and hopefully showcase some competition, unlike in season prior.
