Warford never expected to be drafted by Detroit
Dana Wakiji – Fox Sports Detroit
When Larry Warford played at the Senior Bowl, he had no idea it would help him end up in Detroit, a place he had never been.
“I knew nothing about Detroit,” Warford said with a laugh after a recent practice. “The only thing I knew, I knew the coaches. Down at the Senior Bowl, I met them, Coach Wash (offensive line coach Jeremiah Washburn) and he was a great coach. I had fun and I was like, that would be cool to get coached by him.
“Honestly, I never thought I’d be drafted here and then lo and behold, I get drafted here and I thought, oh, Coach Wash is there and I was excited about that. I love working with him. He’s a great coach, really patient and he knows how to work with offensive linemen so I’m really fortunate to have him.”
Detroit Lions’ Nate Burleson: I’d love to be on ‘Hard Knocks,’ but we don’t deserve it

In a recent interview with the Bengals official website, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell emphasized the league’s shared responsibility for the show and discussed potentially establishing a regular rotation for teams to be featured.
Lions coach Jim Schwartz was less than interested in talking about the possibility.
“We’re not on Hard Knocks,” Schwartz said. “We’re worried about our training camp. We’re worried about what we’re doing. We’re not worried about what may happen in the future or what other teams are doing. We need to concentrate on our stuff.”
Lions’ focus will be on their own performance vs. the Jets on Friday
Mike O’Hara – DetroitLions.com
The Lions don’t intend to have their first public full-dress rehearsal become an episode in any of the off-Broadway dramas that seem to follow the New York Jets no matter who they play or when.
Friday night’s first preseason game of the season against the Jets at Ford Field should be just that – a preseason game.
The Lions’ focus will be on their own performance. The game plan will be bare bones, based on what head coach Jim Schwartz wants to see from his players as opposed to attacking an opponent’s weaknesses, as would be the case in the regular season.
