Warford's quick transition is exceeding expectations

ALLEN PARK, Mich. Larry Warford is helping Detroit Lions general manager Martin Mayhew and the clubs scouting department redeem themselves. The rap on Mayhew has been that his draft decisions, other than some of the top picks overall, have left something to be desired over the years.
