Lions Close Out Draft with DL, LS and RB

The Lions used their last 2 picks in the 6th round on a versatile defensive lineman and a long snapper before closing it out with a running back. Anthony Zettel is a DT/DE from Penn St that is undersized at DT, but inexperienced at DE.  He has a non-stop motor and very good quickness.  He […]

Lions Draft QB Jake Rudock with First 6th Round Pick

The Lions were going to take a QB in this draft and they elected to take Jake Rudock in the 6th round.  Rudock is an accurate passer but he rarely throws downfield.  He’s not my favorite pick with Brandon Allen and Jeff Driskel on the board.  Rudock needs to add bulk and also arm strength. […]

LB Antwione Williams is the 169th Pick

Lions Draft OL Joe Dahl with Pick 151

The Lions go back to the well in the 5th round and take Joe Dahl.  Dahl played tackle in college, but there are some that believe he will kick inside to guard.  My personal belief is that Dahl is going to learn all the positions except center this year, then step into a swing tackle […]

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 […]
