    Looks like another nickelback which means he will suffer a career threatening injury in a year or two.

    I'd say this is a solid B. Prefer Coleman to Abdullah, was a little disappointed with what we received by trading down, and wish we hadn't taken a FB. But at least we're addressing some needs.

    Do we have another pick? I'd love to get Tre McBride.

    Would probably be better off trying to draft Tom Harmon if they want a Michigan 98 on the roster

    Team captain with high character. He seems to fit the profile.

    why not take Collins with this last pick? What do you have to lose? He gets arrest you cut him (like you will probably end up doing with your 7th rounder anyways).

    Because you don't want to be the team that picked a guy who ended up being involved in a murder.

    Corey Robinson from South Carolina is actually an interesting pick. OT some people had as a potential 3rd rounder.

    Will be interesting to see how this class ends up. Seems like this is a class where it will be disappointing if there isn't a big impact, because we didn't go for a ton of upside.

    Definitely a Mayhew change up draft. 0 WRs, but added 2 CBs and 3 OLs.

    I'm sure most places will grade this as something between a B and a C. Some might be harsher based on Tomlinson being considered a reach.

    Mayhew says he wants four starters out of every draft, but we're only looking at two guys who will likely start the opener: Tomlinson and Burton.

    I guess if you want to cheat, you could say that Abdullah starts at KR as well.

    Still, I liked the draft for what it was. It seems we took guys who actually give a fuck which is nice.

    I expect Abdullah to play enough that he's more of a 1b than a 2 at RB. Wouldn't shock if Carter or Diggs ended up being 5th DB, either, which would make either of them starter-ish.

    I could see all the guys in the first five rounds starting at some point in their careers if things work out. Not sure anyone outside of Tomlinson is ever more than average at their positions as a starter, but there's value in being decent, as well.

    South Dakota State RB Zach Zenner is signing with Lions. Chargers were reported elsewhere. Not an option for him. Team set at RB.

    I actually think Zenner could stick if we keep 5 RB (including 1 FB).

    Kind of weird that reports have us signing 2 QBs. Neither of them are going to make the team, but it sounds like Brandon Bridge might have Stafford-like arm strength with no clue where it's going. I'm assuming he's being brought in to make Kellen Moore feel as inadequate as possible.

    Way too early 53 man roster prediction:

    QB (3) - Matthew Stafford, Kellen Moore, Dan Orlovsky
    RB (5) - Joique Bell, Ameer Abdullah, Theo Riddick, George Winn, Michael Burton (FB)
    WR (5) - Calvin Johnson, Golden Tate, Corey Fuller, TJ Jones, Ryan Broyles
    TE (3) - Eric Ebron, Brandon Pettigrew, Joseph Fauria
    T (5) - Riley Reiff, LaAdrian Waddle, Cornelius Lucas, Michael Williams, Corey Robinson
    G/C (4) - Larry Warford, Laken Tomlinson, Travis Swanson, Manny Ramirez,

    DT (4) - Haloti Ngata, Tyrunn Walker, Caraun Reid, Gabe Wright
    DE (5) - Ziggy Ansah, Jason Jones, Larry Webster, Devin Taylor, Darryl Tapp
    LB (6) - Deandre Levy, Stephen Tulloch, Kyle Van Noy, Tahir Whitehead, Julian Stanford, Josh Bynes
    CB (6) - Darius Slay, Rashean Mathis, Nevin Lawson, Bill Bentley, Alex Carter, Quandre Diggs
    S (4) - Glover Quin, James Ihedigbo, Isa Abdul-Quddus, Don Carey

    ST (3) - Matt Prater, Sam Martin, Don Muhlbach

    We'll add a few more vets who could make it as reserve/special teams guys at different spots, but it seems like you could probably take 45-47 of these to the bank already.

    It's probably just puff piece stuff during camp, but Twentyman has had articles about Caraun Reid, Larry Webster and Devin Taylor in the last couple days with some quotes from the coaches saying they like them. Reid has apparently put on a decent amount of weight (I think he's been working out with Suh) and seems like he'll enter camp at least strongly in the mix for snaps next to Ngata.

    Also, we apparently met with DT Mike Patterson the other day. Not sure if we sign him, or if he would make the team if we did.

    Had a puff piece about Ebron, too. He's shaved his mohawk, so the years of dropping the football should be behind him.

    Levy agreed to a new deal. Most underrated player in the league I think.

    I was going to make a joke about the Ford family signing guy named Levy to a big contract related to Henry's anti-semitism, but that led me down a path of reconciling that the team owned by William Clay Ford for a time employed a player named Willie Clay, which I found interesting. I'm going to get fired.

    Great deal for the Lions

    Details on that 4-year extension for #LionsLB DeAndre Levy: Its worth $33.72M ($8.43M per year). $20M in guarantees.

    I'd be interested to know if there's an article out there that shows the difference in money spent on a 4-3 d vs 3-4. the #s are so wide between Levy and Justin Houston, even though they are both studs as OLBs. Guess 4-3 ends and DTs get paid more in 4-3 systems, so probably evens out. Wonder if there's some analysis available though ...
