8. Larry Warford
As a third-round pick out of Kentucky in 2013, not much was expected of this 6-foot-3, 332-pound guard. But Warford stepped right in and took over at right guard nearly from day one, starting all 16 games as a rookie for the Lions. And he didn’t just fill a void; Warford excelled. There are plenty of people who felt that Detroit’s first-year guard deserved a Pro Bowl nod, something the 22-year-old rising star will certainly get plenty of in the future.
7. Josh Sitton
Another classic interior lineman, Sitton has been a very versatile player for the Packers. He started his career at tackle, moved to right guard for four seasons – where he earned Pro Bowl honors in 2012 – and then moved to left tackle last season when that’s where Green Bay needed him to play. That’s just what should be expected out of a former fourth-round pick out of Central Florida, who has scrapped and clawed his way to a nice NFL career.
