  The majority of UK students are having an exceptionally awesome day on campus: DanceBlue is poppin' For the Kids and the College Gameday crew is Shaking it as well. Larry Warford isn't dancing on campus, but he is trying to prove to NFL scouts that he can be lighter on his feet than a dancing Jay Bilas. Warford's day at Lucas Oil Stadium has wrapped up, posting numbers that will keep him in the hunt as a possible late 1st round/early 2nd round pick. Warford's bench press high of 28 is a career best (how conveniently timed).   Warford is unsure of exactly where he will land, but versatility is on his side. "(Teams) have asked if I have taken snaps before. I was actually our second string center this year, so I've played a lot of center." SEC linemen are frequently asked to play immediately; the ability to play two positions provides a much larger window of opportunity for the big man. "I don't know who is liking me and who's not," Warford said. "I'm just here to work. That's all I can really do."   Warford's Results (Optimal Target time/reps in Parenthesis) 40 yard dash: 5.58 seconds (5.3) Bench Press 225 lbs: 28 (25) Vertical Jump: 22.5 inches (28) Broad Jump: 96 in (100 in) 20 yard shuttle: 5.1 seconds (4.7) 3 Cone Drill: 7.78 seconds (7.85)
