Lions Draft S Miles Killebrew with 111th Pick

The top need areas left to address in this draft for me were safety and defensive end.  I anticipated one of those two positions with the pick in the 4th round and the Lions did grab a safety with the 111th pick.  Miles Killebrew is a big time hitter and will compete for the strong […]

Lions Select C Graham Glasgow with the 95th Pick

The Lions continue to add beef to the trenches as they select Graham Glasgow at the end of the 3rd round.  Double G is a larger-than-usual center prospect. Despite his 6’6″ frame, Glasgow stays low out of his stance and plays with good leverage.  He has the athleticism to pull and hit moving targets when […]

Lions Draft A’Shawn Robinson with 46th Pick

The second round began with a huge run on defensive linemen and the Lions joined in that run.  After a series of edge rushers and tackles were picked, the DT stable was thinning very rapidly.  The Lions pounced on A’Shawn Robinson with the 46th pick. Robinson was the lesser talked about of the two Alabama […]

Interior Offensive Lineman Ronald Leary on Trade Block

The Lions are looking to upgrade the interior offensive line in the draft, but the Cowboys have just made it clear that a veteran interior lineman is available. Leary was a starter that was displaced by rookie La’El Collins.  No word on what compensation the Cowboys are looking for.

Preparing for Round 2

The Lions addressed their most glaring need in the first round, but they have a lot more work to do on the roster.  The top areas of need on the roster are defensive end, safety and defensive tackle.  In my opinion, the pick in the second round needs to be the most explosive, highest upside […]

Lions Draft OT Taylor Decker with the 16th Pick in the First Round

After an unpredictable first half of the first round, the Lions finally made their pick.  While it looked like the Lions might get a shot at Laremy Tunsil, he went 3 picks before the Lions were on the clock.  Decker was the last of the upper tier of tackles, but he is the one that […]

Lions Draft Targets at 16

The Detroit Lions are currently slated to select in the 16th slot of the first round tonight.  The top two picks of the draft have already been traded and many experts are predicting more trades.  I don’t anticipate a trade up for the Lions since they have such limited draft capital in the first three […]

Ndamukong Suh suspended for playoff game

Ndamukong Suh has been suspended for this coming Sunday’s playoff game versus the Dallas Cowboys. The suspension stems from Suh having stepped on Packers QB Aaron Rodgers’ calf as he laid on the ground. While it is not obvious that Suh did this purposely, his reputation certainly has not done him any favors. The league’s […]
