New Orleans Saints guard Larry Warford has been named to the NFC Pro Bowl squad, it was announced by the Saints and the NFL today. It is Warford’s third consecutive and third overall, with the Saints now having a franchise-record ten players named to the league’s all-star game, surpassing the eight named from the 2018 squad. The Pro Bowl will be played on Sunday, January 26 at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla.
Warford, 6-3, 317, is a seven-year NFL veteran who was originally selected in the third round (65th overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft by the Lions out of Kentucky. In his seven seasons with New Orleans and Detroit, he has opened all 101 regular season games and six postseason contests at right guard. In 2019, Warford opened 15 regular season contests and the postseason game, blocking for a team tied for third in the NFL in points per game and giving up only 25 sacks, tied for the league’s third-lowest total. Warford is only the second Saint to be named to the league’s all-star game in each of his first three seasons with the club.
Warford will replace Dallas Cowboys guard Zack Martin, who is unable to participate due to injury.
